Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

For themes, run Firefox, from the menu choose
Get New Themes
which opens http://texturizer.net/firefox/themes/ in a new browser
then pick a theme, click on Install, answer the questions, and it's done.
Extensions is about the same...
Get New Extensions
follow the gui directions...
I use to have problems installing extentions untill I installed it in my home and to save the plugins.delete the plugins folder and link -s with the plugins I had in mozilla/plugins,then I could install anything I wanted.
Installed firefox in my home<eliminates permision problems>then delete that plugins folder and make a link to a plugins folder that has all your plugins.Just saves time installing the plugins again if you allready have them installed in another firefox or mozilla.I use apt so it is easy to install them to mozilla then they are linked to firefox in home,works great,read it around here,they explain it better then I do! Here is my link from root;ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins /home/david/firefox first I deleted the /home/david/firefox/plugins
