*Theme: Oxygen -> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7962
*In System Settings, Appearance, GTK Styles and Fonts -> Use Another Style -> QtCurve.

It appeared when I installed the package "gtkstyles-qtcurve" using Yum. Are there differents QtCurve styles?

Mine doesn't look like this one -> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/images/p/22837/1214935956

A lot of buttons are screwed up for me, as is the text in some single-line text forms. Otherwise it works decently.

@ TheBlackCat

Open a pdf with the Gimp??? Christ on a bike - tell it to use kpdf or okular instead! Or use the mozilla-acroread plugin to keep it a browser based affair... The Gimp is nearly as bad Adobe's full blown acroreader itself in terms of loading times.

I [i]can't[/i] tell it to use okular. It is like the association with GIMP is hard-coded into the program or something. None of the configuration settings that should allow me to control that sort of thing let me change it. In fact GIMP does not even appear in the settings. I had to resort to uninstalling GIMP entirely (and Krita, if GIMP wasn't installed it would use Krita instead).

In FF, goto Edit -> Preferences -> Applications. The formats you open should be listed there. For setting PDFs to okular, select type PDF and click on the drop menu to choose "use other" and point it to /usr/bin/okular

Thanks, but that is the first thing I tried. It doesn't work. Sure, if I click a pdf file it will automatically open it in okular. But if I save I PDF file, go to the download manager, then click "open", it will open it in GIMP. If I try to open a PDF file from Zotero (a firefox-based reference manager), it always opens in GIMP (making Zotero almost unusable). So while I can change the default download action, I cannot change the default program used to open the file when I click "open". I changed the default file associations in KDE4 and the default file associations in GNOME, it did not make any different. And while GIMP appears in the drop down menu for programs I can select, it doesn't appear in the list of applications in "application details", meaning I cannot remove it from the list of program firefox uses. If I uninstall GIMP, the same thing happens with Krita (which does not appear at all in the list of PDF file handlers until after GIMP is removed). I even searched for any file containing "gimp" or "image" in both my profile directory and the firefox installation directory with no luck.

It sounds like some other mimetype has been mapped to GIMP / Krita. Have a look in the Gnome file associations settings for anything related to GIMP or Krita and if appropriate set them to Okular. ( application/pdf, application/x-gzpdf and application/x-bzpdf would be good ones to check )

I already tried that as well.

This isn't firefox, but it's a good integration:

Does anyone managed to have firefox with a nice looking oxygen theme on kubuntu ?

With opensuse it's perfect, firefox is like a Qt4 app, but with Kubuntu the gtk-qt-engine gives ugly buttons (Google homepage is really scary with it).

When I wrote this how to I did it for Kubuntu and if you follow the advice given in the first post Firefox looks a treat in Kubuntu - go and read it again, it says so in the thread itself :-)

I read it, but I don't want Qtcurve, I want oxygen !
With opensuse, gtk-qt-engines provides a great integration to firefox.
On Kubuntu it's not the case, and oxygen is really smart. :(
