"Mozilla will be getting a new look very soon. The Modern theme has been redesigned to be a little easier on the eyes. The new look includes a lighter shade of blue, colored toolbar button icons, and lots of other little touches. Bear with me as I land this sometime in the next week or so, as there will surely be bugs. The design is still evolving and there are likely to be frequent changes (for example, dialog buttons will not be black for long after landing)."

Joe also sent us a screenshot for you to check out, stay tuned for more info on this landing.

I wouldn't say that the sidebar sucks, but it would look better if the color scheme matched. On my computer the sidebar looks blue and the browser looks purple. Blue throughout is better, but silver grey (modern-mozillium) would be the best. The buttons in general would probably look better if the inactive buttons fade in with the nav toolbar like the current modern theme.
