The menubar is okay, the trouble is that all FF/TB/OO.o widgets are
toplevel ones, so styles like "<GtkToolbar>.<GtkButton>" don't get
applied (i.e. placing your bookmarks bar on the menubar makes the
bookmark button still keep its old (light) style).
Plus, your theme is actually totally dark (except probably *some* input
boxes), which makes the color much easier to manage. Dust has dark
menubars and toolbars only.
