Hmm, it may be that whatever is switching it back to the mozilla defaults 
for you, is what I see pretty much all the time.  Once I get a color 
theme I like, I don't change it much or often, so wouldn't reapply it 
often.  Combine that with the fact that I run kmail not thunderbird, and 
use konqueror for most web so don't run firefox /that/ often, it may be 
that the kde colors get exported to firefox temporarily too, but I just 
never run it before whatever that bug is switches the colors back to 
mozilla default, so I never see the application of the kde colors at all 
and didn't think it happened at all.
