Please don't just make them a slightly different shade of grey! Please make the distinction more visually easy.
Doesn't anybody Think the difference is too slight? Is anybody home?

Created attachment 780682 [details] arrows.png Here we see the two ridiculously similar arrow types side by side. Never mind that one is a pointing left, the other right. My point is that their color is way too similar. Why can't the default just be e.g., red and green, without needing the user to have to manually pick a different default?
Compare Google chromium, black vs. grey, not grey I vs. grey II.

jidanni, I'm not sure how these sorts of suggestions get prioritized, but I did take a look at similar bugs for the Firefox theme, and there are around 500. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?list_id=7327263&query_format=advanced&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&component=Theme&product=Firefox Maybe there is a good add-on that will give you custom buttons closer to what you would like. How about this one? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/classic-compact-options/?src=search
Summary: The difference between a clickable BACK button and and an unclickable one is too slight → Distinctive BACK and FORWARD arrow colors
Yes I am sure there are 1000 different arrows one can customize. I am just curious how in the world Firefox ended up with 99% similar looking defaults.
Summary: Distinctive BACK and FORWARD arrow colors → Distinctive clickable vs. non-clickable BACK and FORWARD arrow colors

The icons you see there are actually provided by your OS theme.

Wait, I found something that looks like it... $ dlocate /usr/share/icons/gnome/48x48/actions/back.png gnome-icon-theme: /usr/share/icons/gnome/48x48/actions/back.png
So how does one get Firefox to use it's OWN themes? How do I know what the real Firefox themes look like? Here, I'll start with a completely virgin account, # su - nobody now what? None of the tricks on http://www.google.com/search?q=make+firefox+ignore+theme work!
