We're investigating a visual refresh of Firefox this year, this bug tracks that work.

I know it was an April Fool, but I'll bring up this blog post: https://blog.mozilla.org/ux/2013/04/firefox-next-evolving-the-user-interface-using-genetic-algorithms/. I haven't seen any comprehensive browser UI analysis based on Fitt's Law, Hick's Law, and GOMS-CPM/CoDeIn modeling. Optimize toolbar button sizes for task flow. Don't just put lipstick on a pig, save a few seconds for millions of users! :)

Personally I like the look of the developer edition theme. Maybe a light version of it would look very nice and modern.

+1 for developer edition theme or something minimal like that. Dark one is great.

The developer edition themes are shipping as alternative themes in Firefox 53, see bug 1314091.
