 Which Firefox version from which source? Mozilla.org builds recent versions
using GTK3. Some distros still build some versions using GTK2. The two toolkits
depend on different theming.

I've run into reversed UI colors several times before, but always forget exactly
how to fix it by the next time it happens. I only remember messing with GTK app
theming to solve it.
