probably recompile it from source so it links to gtk2 and there must be a configure option.

ok so you got the same as the packages that get the tag gtk2.

So if that wasn't what you want then you must be talking of the web page rendering part. I think you can rewrite a userContent.css to get you custom .css to pages that don't specify a .css

Finally found the link I looked at a while ago:

http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html

it work on windows too.

~/ApplicationData/...

in linux it should probably be in your

.firefox or .mozilla-firefox folder

anyway it should be in your chrome folder.
