when you use the Mozilla install-a-theme doohickey, it tries to write
the theme into /usr/lib/mozilla/chrome, where your user account has no
write access. Alternatively, you could manually insert the theme into

You'd think Mozilla would try the user directory if the /usr/lib/
directory failed, but... I believe we all know the standard answer to
that one :-)
