Revision Content

Themes are skins for different Mozilla applications. They allow you to change the look and feel of the user interface and personalize it to your tastes. A theme can simply change the colors of the UI or it can change every piece of its appearance. The Theme documentation here is out of date, but we're hoping to get some help to update it soon.
