Not the same bug, but related to Bug #770257. Is there a meta Windows 8 DESKTOP appearance bug that such issues should block?
Whoops, Bug #808403 is what I meant
No clue about a meta bug. But I don't have edit privileges so I cannot make one.
Obviously, the window frame colors are just grey, simply because the system colors are not available via CSS. This is meant to be combined with the stuff from Bug #808403

I confirm this issue. The Firefox Menu seems to use a mix of native menu items and custom menu items (with an arrow on the right). The custom menu items (with an arrow on the right) uses a Windows 7 style highlight (a light blue gradient) instead of a flat highlight. Contrariwise, items without the arrow use the native flat highlight.
