Created attachment 571671 [details] Screenshot with third party warning with a theme installed Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0a1) Gecko/20111101 Firefox/10.0a1 Found on Firefox8 Beta6. Occurs in Firefox 10 as well. STR: 1. Start Firefox. 2. Install and enable a theme on Firefox 10.(e.g. Lava Fox) 3. Install a third party add-on. 4. Restart Firefox. Actual results: the third party warning message is aligned to the upper left corner, instead of being displayed in the center as it usually does.

That's a theme issue and probably invalid. But we should reach out to our theme creators to ensure that will be fixed in the most-often used themes.
We have an issue that we can either do all of the styling in the theme so the theme authors can have total control, or we can do some of the basic styling (positioning sort of thing) in the content. Normally when we do the latter theme authors ask us to change it so they can do what they like, but when we do the former this happens because the theme author has to have noticed the new UI, It's a tricky balance that we've never really figured out well :( Going to shift this over to extension compatibility.
Component: Add-ons Manager → Extension Compatibility
Product: Toolkit → Firefox
QA Contact: add-ons.manager → extension.compatibility
The UI doesn't look like this anymore and themes like Lava Fox are now longer valid, closing.
