i have already reported it but i cant find any more where it is but i have made a search and it doesn't appear.
i think that firefox changes his behaviour since version 3.6.3 where its inroduced by default the "personas" i go to this site (that is the last version released yesterday)and as it say in the page  is just pass the mouse over a theme to try, click to apply, i passed the mouse over and it doesnt change the theme and if i click it ask for a permisission to change to the new selecte theme so it doesnt seem to work on xp 32 bit it should change it automatically when pass the mouse over and when its to apply it just have to click on it and FF doesnt have to ask to change it. it as been working as i said wich i think is a normal behaviour in version 3.6.3. on vista and win7 it seems to work normally Roll over to try, click to apply

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go here
2.rool over the mouse but you cant see the theme cjhanging in win xp i have tried in vista and win7 and it works normally and dont ask to apply a new theme xp cant preview themes and applu«y i hvae to give autorization to apply so preview wont work
Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
the same as in version 3.6.3 wich works fine but 3.6.7 wont work

yes i'm using the default theme.i just want when i go to this page that it changes automatically and without asking for apply the new theme when roll over the mouse to a new theme and it even changes automatically when i pass the mouse over a theme. i have to click on it and then give permission to change. but the correct behaviour is when i pass the mouse over it changes automatically when passing over the themes giving a preview and then click to apply it just don't work on xp sp3 because in vista and 7 it works fine

On the machine with the issue if you start Firefox in its safe mode or a new profile do personas work as expected? Both Firefox's safe mode and creating a new profile are explained at

Themes also don't show when rolling over in the latest Firefox versions on my  Windows 7 laptop and my OS X iMac, both with the default theme.  I also tried on an XP desktop, it also doesn't work.
