    Firefox is gtk based and blends well in Gnome. IIRC, there is an option in KDE Control Center to enable gtk theme or something like that. Firefox appearance changes a lot after enabling it.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You are spot on. Installing QtCurve solved the problem.

    Indeed, qtcurve is the best option that I've run across of making gtk apps look better in KDE. I generally use it in combination with gtk-theme-switch2 to get everything looking right.
