Hello again everyone!  I have put together two basic Firefox themes that go with Linux Lite.  The first theme is a light theme based on the colors of the default "MediterraneanWhite" appearance settings when you first install Linux Lite.  The second theme is a dark theme based on the colors of the "Zukitwo-Dark-reloaded" appearance settings that ships with Linux Lite.  The two themes are for whomever is a fan of Linux Lite and wants a Firefox theme that ties together with the branding of the OS.

Light:  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/linux-lite-default/
Dark:  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/linux-lite-default-dark/

In addition, to enable the toolbar buttons to stand out a bit more you can install the Classic Toolbar Buttons from the following link (as suggested by Bukowskii in the conversation below):

That's great to hear guys!  Let me know what you all think.  They are super simple themes, but I wanted something that tied in with the OS a bit more.

Thanks for trying it out, Coastie!  I am more of a fan of darker themes myself.  Strains my eyes less when I'm on the PC for longer periods of time.  Add this to the list of reasons LL is better than Win10, because in Win10 you cannot change the color of the window borders so they are always bright white and in your face!  ::)

Exactly! Even though Linux Lite does not supply a dark enough theme for me, it is not difficult to add a dark theme and wallpaper with XFCE.  8)

Wow, from that snapshot, I really like that theme. I think I'll give BleuFear a try myself! Especially because LL doesn't supply a theme dark enough for my taste either out of the box.

Thanks, I got the theme from Spatry's Cup of Linux edition of Manjaro http://sourceforge.net/projects/manjarocupoflinuxedition/. It can also be found at http://m4xm4n.deviantart.com/art/BleuFear-for-GTK-3-2-3-4-3-6-and-3-8-271798366. The blue folders, etc. are GNOME-Brave which are in Synaptic.

Great themes! I added Classic Toolbar Buttons https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cstbb/ to really make the buttons pop with these themes.

@Coastie, thanks for the links!  I've been playing around different Xfce themes now and there are a couple I seem to prefer. The one you linked to is nice and I also like Numix-Dark with the Numix-Circle icons.  Though, I've noticed that most of the themes I can find (particularly the ones on xfce-look.org) have not been updated in many many years...  Where do you usually look for your themes?

@Bukowskii, excellent recommendation in regards to the classic toolbar buttons!  You're right, the classic toolbar buttons make everything easier to see.  I am going to edit the original post and add in your suggestion for the buttons there. Thanks!

I found BleuFear theme on the live DVD of Spatry's Cup of Linux version of Manjaro. I look at themes on various distros that I test drive but haven't found anything else I like better so I have been using BleuFear for a couple of years. The only theme that I found I liked even close was in Ubuntu Mate. Don't remember the name. It was a charcoal gray plus a silver window manager trim which makes a nice silver bar going back and forth when downloading, etc. :) Don't know if can be used in XFCE. There are some nice Mediterranean dark themes I tested in other distros but some things did not show up readable.
