Did you try the one back 2 post it should have be a color in the boxs?

Take a screenshot of the start button & the taskbar so I can see it.

Its all white, and the firefox 4 menu bar icon shakes. The other customaero you told me to delete had colors just like default aero, but it didn't remove the boxes. The last theme you provided removed the boxes its just like the aero you provided before and its white.

Yes I try the 2 back posts. The colors are the same as default, but you told me to delete that theme. Now I'm back using the default theme. The last theme was like the windows classic with white taskbar and firefox 4 menu bar tabs were shaking.
