On Windows the menus are completely borked. Actually I get exactly the same behaviour if I take the classic.jar which comes with the linux build of Firefox and package that one. It works OK then on Linux but on Windows it's also borked. It would be nice that themes just worked on every OS and if that is not possible then it would be nice if a theme author could add stuff in his css files which are specific for a specific OS Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
It depends on the theme. Some themes are made to be compatible with all OSes. Some sacrifice their "cross-platformness" to look better on the (only) OS they support. In order to "add stuff in his css files which are specific for a specific OS" you probably need special CSS directives, adding them is Browser bug, probably wontfix, but I'm not sure.

Resolving as INVALID, as the fact that not all themes are cross-platform is not a bug in Firefox. Note: bug 255619 will introduce a way for authors to declare their themes/extensions as platform-specific, which prevents a Windows user from accidently installing a Linux theme. Making possible cross-platform-themes where some parts in CSS are applied only to a specific OS would require changes deep "under the hood" of the rendering engine, Gecko. The alternative - installing some CSS files only on some platforms - would require similar deep changes to the way the chrome registry handles contents.rdf manifests. Therefore, such suggestions would likely be WONTFIXED.
