Bug Description

Themes, especially dark ones, do not always play nicely with Firefox. Except for Balanzan, all Bisigi themes have this small bug. Firefox's URL bar and search bar have a white border around them. I have included a screen shot of the bug.

When trying to find a fix, I was digging around in the gtkrc of Ambiance, the Ubuntu default theme, to find out why it wasn't affected. I found the following piece of code (including the comment) that fixes the problem:

        # The following line hints to gecko (and possibly other applications)
 # that the entry should be drawn transparently on the canvas.
 # Without this, gecko will fill in the background of the entry.
 GtkEntry::honors-transparent-bg-hint = 1

I think this line of code should be added to all of your themes to make them even better than they already are. Thanks for such great work!
