    Firefox uses GTK as its toolkit. To get around this you can either install a standalone Firefox Oxygen theme or you can set your GTK theme to use Oxygen, either as a standalone them or by using one of the tools for mirroring KDE's theme.

    I know I'm being a bit vague but I'm coming from the otherside. I run a Gnome desktop so as I install my KDE apps such as Amarok and Ktorrent, I install KDE4 systemsettings and set the theme to point at GTK's theme and then manually synchronise the colours. That way no matter what application I open up they all look native

    Au! I had that happen to me too.

    The fastest way around this is from textual mode
    Code:
    mv ~/.kde ~/kde.bak
    and log back in. This builds a new profile. The old one is now in ~/kde.bak, so you can restore it or parts of it if you need. Otherwise you can throw it away.
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
