    Put this in your userChrome.css file in user profile chrome folder:

    toolbar {
    background-color: #ffffff !important;
    }

    Replace #ffffff with color of your choice.

    Are you putting the code into the userChrome.css file located in your user
    profile chrome folder? If you have more than one profile, ensure you are in
    the right one.

    At the very end and make sure the first line in the file says:
    @namespace
    url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gat....is.only.xul);
    without "/*" in front of it or "*/" behind it.

    OK, here's the same answer explained in more detail; I didn't check it's
    validity, but see at bottom what to do if it still doesn't work after
    you try the following steps:

    1. Go to the chrome/ subfolder of your profile folder. If you don't know
    where to fild your profile, get help from
    http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox

    2. If that chrome subfolder doesn't contain a file named userChrome.css,
    create that file with the following lines (warning: your browser or mine
    may have "beautified" some lines by adding spurious linebreaks. If there
    are unindented lines (starting at the mail's left margin), each of them
    should be joined to the preceding line. After that you may remove the
    initial tabs.

    /*
    * This file can be used to customize the look of Mozilla's user interface
    * You should consider using !important on rules which you want to
    * override default settings.
    */

    /*
    * For more examples see http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html
    */

    /*
    * Do not remove the following line, it is required for correct functioning
    */
    @namespace
    url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

    3. Now that userChrome.css exists, add the following at its end:

    toolbar
    { background-color: white !important
    }

    replacing "white" by any colour of your choice, either a symbolic name
    known to your system, or a hex number in the format #RRGGBB (i.e. a #
    sign immediately followed by six hex digits representing the red, green,
    and blue values, in that order, and each in the range 00 to FF).

    4. IF IT STILL DOESN'T WORK: Have you got the "DOM Inspector" installed?
    If you do, it is mentioned on the Extensions page of your Add-Ons
    Manager. If you don't, I guess the easiest method to get the right
    version of DOM Inspector for your version of Firefox is to reinstall the
    latter, but with a "Full" or "Custom" install, and making sure that Dom
    Inspector is included. That "extension", with any good paper book about
    CSS style sheets from your friendly computer bookshop, ought to be
    enough to help you find out how to change the look of any part of what
    Firefox displays. (Note: Reinstalling Firefox doesn't touch your
    profile, where your settings, extensions, bookmarks, browsing history,
    cookies, passwords, etc. are located. It may or may not remove some or
    all of your plugins.)


    Best regards,
    Tony.

    You can delete all that stuff. Make sure this is the first line:
    @namespace
    url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

    toolbar {
    background-color: #ffffff !important;
    }

    Also make sure the the does not say userChrome-example.css, needs to say
    userChrome.css
