Here is a short description:
- Download and extract the theme and install it (drag the ‘strata40_v02.jar’ to Firefox - Tools – Add-ons – Themes)

- Move the ‘Stop and Reload’ buttons after the URL bar ( in Firefox - View – Tool bars-Customize – and drag both buttons)

- Install the add-on 'Personal menu' from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3895 (to remove and customize the toolbar buttons and menus)

- Download ‘All Glass Firefox Mod’ from here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12181 (For Vista and 7 users’ only. It will give glassy, aero look, like in IE7/8).

Copy the contents of ‘Glasser fixes.txt’ from the extracted mockup theme and paste it into a blank Stylish style. Name it something like "Strata40 - Glasser Fixes" and make sure it is activated. This will fix up a few things that were overridden by the glass addon.

- If you like to add 'Fission', install it from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1951. Go into the "Fission" addon's options and click "browse" and select the ‘loading_progress.png’ from the extracted mockup theme archive
