The dark (theme) side of Firefox

For those inclined to black or dark desktops, here are six nice Firefox themes you want to give a try.

Pictured here on Windows XP with the Royal Noir theme for darker effect. All available from Mozilla Add-ons, but for those marked experimental you will need an account.

  1. I miss the Black Japan theme. It was an awesome sleek black theme that was minimal and sleek. I am waiting on the upgrade for it.

    1. Thanks for the links to these addons/themes.

      I have been looking for a way to make firefox fit in better with the new Zune theme for XP

      I’m now using a combination of the AnyColor addon, and the Strata Human (Orange) theme to achieve this, an it looks great!

  2. I also nominate NASA Night Launch. I especially appreciate the customization options, active development, and avoidance of glossy buttons everywhere.

  3. Is there any dark theme that does NOT alter the tabs?

    I like to use the ColorfulTabs theme but every dark theme I’ve tried stopped it working.


  4. RedShift & Bloodfire are the best dark themes for me but they haven’t been updated yet…But they are the best I have used…

  5. What happens when a theme completely hoses your Firefox? I’m guessing I have to re-install. (typing this from IE, looking for answers)

    1. YEah most of these hose my firefox :( just launch in firefox in “safe mode” and select a working theme and restart.

  6. Hi… Can anyone reply as to how to uninstall a theme by using the Firefox profile folder. My FF crashes as soon as I open it, because of a new theme that I had installed. Since it crashes as soon as I start FF, I cannot uninstall the theme from the Tools –> Add-on manager step.

  8. 2nd vote for NASA NIGHT LAUNCH!!! – for its streamlined interface, no well designed alternatives on the whole web
