For those of you using some of the default Ubuntu themes (Human, Tango or Industrial) there is a package that will match those same themes for your Firefox browser for a more consistent overall look. I’ve got a screenshot below and how to install. Lets get started!
To install these themes you will want to install the following package via command line or your favorite package management tool:
sudo aptitude install firefox-themes-ubuntu
Adding this package is a really easy way to get your browser to match the same look and feel of your desktop. Of course there are many more themes available via the mozilla themes website, but this package is ubuntu specific to match the ubuntu default themes.
I have used the Tango and Industrial theme for quite some time. Not too shiny–nothing fancy, but a nice change from the brown / orange default.
That actually raises a question for me. I think one of the number one complaints that I hear about is the default brown desktop. Is it just me and my area or does it seem to be the same across the board? If it isn’t popular why is it still there on the sixth release?
