How can i run a dark themed firefox in elementary?


Not just a firefox theme. I need the title and the scrollbar to be black themed. Thank you!

then install one

but
remember to add the hack to prevent the BLACK default text on a BLACK text box
in a text file
/home/YourUserName/.mozilla/firefox/????????.default/chrome/userContent.css

use google to find "userContent.css"
for the black theme hack

Most operating system Desktop environments
have "themes" you can install
and most programs can USE the desktop theme

so
install a dark theme
and use the firefox hack to NOT have black text on a black text box

have you read the user manual?

If you want only Firefox to use a separate theme from the rest of your desktop, start Firefox like this:

Code:
bash -c 'GTK2_RC_FILES=/path/to/some/gtkrc/theme/file firefox

Dark Theme :

Firefox >> Tools >> Add-ons

.. And Search for `theme´, and select / install "Metal Lion Australis Theme"

Or get it from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...stralis-theme/

I am using the default elementary theme what is have a dark theme, but it is just dark for the gtk3 applications. I dont know if it can be somehow black for gtk2. I have tried gtk3 firefox now, but without much success.

On my Debian system, it seems that the scroll bar on the right is controlled by my GTK+ settings. So you may want to look into that.
