I have KDE and Metacity as window manager enabled with a dark theme, but I'm having a few problems with it and firefox. The default and my preferred style of firefox is light and not dark, but firefox adopts the dark theme of Metacity / Gnome and so my text boxes etc. are dark too, which looks horrible.

So my question is, how can i set exceptions or extra settings for Gnome so Firefox does not adopt the Gnome theme and set up a light one for it?

Btw, I'm using Kubuntu with Metacity as window manager.


This has already been answered here.

Shortly: Its actually the other way round. You don't tell gnome to skip firefox, you tell firefox to skip gnome.
