Windows 7: Love "Dark Pearl VS" theme.

Windows 7 Ultimate
 
 
Love "Dark Pearl VS" theme.

Hello;
I just installed "Dark Pearl VS" theme on my Windows 7 Ultimate (x64 sp1) box. Wow! So slick!
So much better than the Windows high-contrast themes I tried first. What I was looking to do is reduce eye strain by eliminating the blinding white screens. Dark Pearl VS has done that and more!
Of course I had to download and run the UltraUXThemePatcher_3.3.2.exe first. Created a restore point even before downloading, but the install did another restore point - very thoughtful of the developer to include the restore point.

I did not install the Explorer files. I don't like fooling with Windows system files - especially something as important as Explorer - which when fooled with can render Windows unbootable.

Edit: There are a few glitches with this theme. In Firefox, some websites do not display properly. Note that I also have tried Dark Themes as extensions for Firefox (Quantum - up-to-date) but that made it worse. So I have FF running in native theme. The menu bar does not display properly - colours are wrong and cannot see any of the text.
Websites: Gmail. I cannot see the icons on the top of the page; the logout, settings, etc icons.
I suppose there is a way to tweak the "Dark Pearl" theme, but I have no experience with this type of coding.

Any ideas?

Thanks
FW
