Hi mohama
To start Firefox with all the extensions and themes disabled, you must start it in safe mode:

/path/to/firefox/firefox -safe-mode

Then you can uninstall the bad theme and choose another one.
Greetings.

You must use the directory where the executable binary 'firefox' is, not the .firefox directory which contains your profile.
(eg. on my machine /opt/firefox which gives the command:
/opt/firefox/firefox -safe-mode)
If you don't know where it is, do a search on your hard drive:
under root login:
find / -name firefox

Or tell what is the Linux distribution you are using and how Firefox got installed.

To have the uninstallation completed, try to restart Firefox in normal mode after clicking the theme uninstall button in safe mode. This seems to work for Fx 1.0 version and higher.
What version do you use?

I guess that I cannot go further to help you.
Do a search at the Mozilla site
or the Mozilla forum
Good luck.
