How to make Firefox look like Vista in Windows XP

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)
Google Redesigned
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:

Vista Theme
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
Stylish Icons
Fancy Tooltips

Once everything is installed, it should look like the screen shot above.
