[Bug 220263] Re: Bad Firefox integration with dark themes

For those that run linux and want to update their Firefox icon so it
automatically launches with GTK_THEME="Adwaita:light" firefox %u instead
(band-aid work around that shouldn't need to be).

$ cp /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop ~/.local/share/applications
$ gedit ~/.local/share/applications/firefox.desktop

Change the "Exec=" line to read:

Exec=bash -c "GTK_THEME=\"Adwaita:light\" firefox %u &"

Save and Exit.  
Now your Firefox icon should start using the Adwaita:light theme without a lingering terminal window.
