This was not the case in previous versions of FireFox, therefore it should be possible to avoid this. For the user to have to close all of their browser windows every time they change their theme or install a new extension is irritating and can be avoided. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install a new theme 2. try clicking on 'use theme' in themes manager. Actual Results: It'll tell you to restart firefox Expected Results: Like previous versions of FireFox, it should have switched to this theme immediately.
This is on purpose, because of more serious bugs that were occurring with dynamic switching without restarting.

Shouldn't this bug be kept open because these more serious bugs should be fixed. Having to restart Firefox every single time you install a new extension or theme is just out of date with FireFox's new image as a modern and capable web browser.
Dynamic Theme switching is turned off for Firefox 1.0. There is a goal to bring it back, but not until the bugs for it are fixed. The more serious bugs are being worked on in the dupe and it's dependencies. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 226791 ***
