    Please run these commands in a terminal:

    Code:
    echo 'Ubuntu Architecture' > ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    uname -a >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo 'Ubuntu Version' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt

    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo 'Firefox Packages' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    dpkg --get-selections | grep 'firefox*' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo 'Firefox binaries' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    which firefox >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    file /usr/bin/firefox >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    file /usr/local/bin/firefox >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    file /opt/firefox/firefox >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo 'Firefox divertion' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    file /usr/bin/firefox.ubuntu >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo 'Sources' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    firefox ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    They will generate a file named firefox-report.txt in your Desktop. Copy the contents of that file and post here, so I can diagnose your problem.

    BTW, the first post states that you should have chosen one method only. Running them all only cause trouble.

    I wish there was a a "themes" folder and all the little button icons were .png files in that folder. It would be so easy to swap things around that way.
    But there is! Open up a theme xpi file and that is exactly what you'll find. Almost! Take a theme you can live with and replace icons to your heart's content. Probably the biggest wrinkle you'll find with that idea is that many of the icons will be combined into fairly large images containing dozens of icons. This is, or was, done for performance reasons so that Firefox doesn't have to read thousands of tiny files. It is most important where an icon might flip between states like hover or active. Since themes are packed into xpi files, and in some cases jar files within the xpi file, I don't think this is a big issue any more, but I haven't looked into it. In any case, just work with the setup you have and change icons one for one wherever you find them. Lot of work though.

    If you can't transfer images between your Windows and Linux machine then I'm going to guess that modifying a theme is way beyond you. It would actually be possible to create your theme on Windows!

    Another approach would be to modify a GTK theme, since Firefox primarily uses GTK icons. Unfortunately there are a few custom icons and these are probably the ones you are most interested in changing

    He wasn't referring to a custom theme folder, but the original theme shipped with Firefox. We have already figured out that the default icons are inside omni.jar file in Firefox 4 installation folder.

    Go to "System >> Administration >> Software Sources", remove the entry containing:
    Code:
    http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-next/ubuntu...
    Then execute these commands:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get remove firefox-4.0
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox
    This will reset your default Firefox to Firefox 4 from the stable ppa.

    If you have any problems with bookmarks, passwords or Firefox settings, you might need to copy your profile from ~/.mozilla/firefox-4.0 to ~/.mozilla/firefox

    If you want to completely remove Firefox 4 and downgrade to 3.6, then go to "System >> Administration >> Software Sources", remove the lines containing:

    Code:
    http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-next/ubuntu...
    http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-stable/ubuntu...
    Then execute these on a terminal:


    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get remove firefox-4.0
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox
    If you want to completely reset your Firefox settings, which will DELETE ALL YOUR PASSWORDS, BOOKMARKS, ADD-ONS and other Firefox files, then close Firefox and delete the folder ~/.mozilla/firefox and ~/.mozilla/firefox-4.0

    The default icons are almost useless because there are so few of them in Linux. You can replace them all and you'd still see a whole bunch of standard GTK themed icons. Also, even though I've done it on occasion, messing inside omni.jar isn't really a good solution to anything. Of course maybe you get lucky and only want to replace the Firefox custom icons Here is a directory of the various icons in the default theme, hopefully in a very easy to browse format.

    Instead take a theme that includes a lot of custom icons (or all of them!) and just replace them as you like. Easy and it will still work with Firefox 4.0.1.

    I did all you said, LovingLinux, and it still has me as 4.0. Either way, maybe it will be an improvement.
