    There are a lot of good dark ones out there.
    Right now I’m using Dark Ruler.
    Used to love Black Japan, but won’t run in newer versions of FF.

    MushroomKingdom remains the most awesome FF theme, period.

    Another great one thats sleek and dark, I’m using now, is Ruler Dark

    Great list

    I do my own own color schemes with AnyColor. Currently I have a dark blue and gold theme combined with the Strat-o-Various theme that I like a lot. I’m sure I’ll change it some time. I change my themes often.

    Another way to customize your FF is to use WindowBlinds by Stardock. They come in all color and designs. Many, many dark ones. You can find WB at , my favorite web site for customizing my whole desktop. Check it out…:)

    No Office 2007 Black? — I thought this mixed really well with any dark theme.

    And for just plain darkness, I liked

    I would recommend skinning Ubuntu with the Dust theme (awesome) and the doing the same for Firefox. Looks beautiful!
