    From what I read about that particular error message, it happens when you download the "pinball" theme intended for the osx OS. If that's the case go into your themes folder in mozilla and just delete the pinball.jar file and it's supposed to be o.k. afterwards.

    Yeah, I noticed that there was alot of people complaining about the "xbl binding error" in the reviews of the pinball theme and someone said that's what it was. I don't know how it could happen though as the theme simply downloaded and installed "windows update" style and didn't give me any options as to what OS I had installed. Anyway, I guess I got lucky cuz I got the right one and I think it's great mainly cuz I use desktop themes and didn't want the theme for the browser to override my desktop theme colors, which this one doesn't. If you see what I mean:
