I have been working on customizing my Firefox 3 today. It has worked out quite well. I use XP, so Vista themes are always a plus.
This is what my (hopefully) final product looks like.
This is how I did it:
First I downloaded the following addons and themes for Firefox:
1-Click Weather (optional, I just like their weather toolbar)
Tab Mix Plus
Tab Preview (change the options to your preference, it may say it is incompatible, just restart firefox and you should be good to go.)
Then I got the following things for Stylish:
Google Web Search Dark Theme
Google Image Search Dark Theme
Google Video Dark Theme
You Tube Dark Grey Theme
Tab Mix Progress Bar with System Appearance
Once everything is installed, it should look like the screen shot above.

So, the other day I had problems with Firefox... a box kept popping up asking for authentication (a user name and password). I discovered a quick fix:
- Go to about:config
- search for network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
- Right-click and click modify
- add the server that is asking for authentication (it should say in the dialog boxes that you are trying to get rid of) e.g. http://discovery, http://jaguar, http://puma
