Run Firefox in safe mode and change the skin to a different one. My guess is that that skin isn't supported by 0.9.3

Iit's your profile (not your install directory) that's messed up.
If safe mode doesn't work (rare, but it has happened), then go to your profile directory and delete the extensions folder. You'll lose all current themes/extensions, but everything else will work perfectly.

And where'd you get the theme from? If you got it from update.mozilla.org, I'll complain to the sys admin until he pulls it ;)

no...Mozilla Firefox has a safe mode option.

If you deleted the Firefox program group that was created when you installed, you can run in Firefox Safe Mode with the -safe-mode command line option

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode

Raiden1803: that's because you deleted the chrome of the downloaded theme. Essentially, it doesn't know what files to reference in order to switch the theme (Styles, pictures, etc, etc ...)
Downloading and installing the theme again might work, but that one might be hosed altogether.

Make sure you download themes/extensions only from http://update.mozilla.org , unless you don't mind risking your profile directory for the theme. Anything that doesn't work from there should be reported so it's removed. For instance, Tabbrowser Extensions was the first extension to cause the XBL binding error. Everyone involved with Firefox adamantly refuses to have it listed on u.m.o, because of that and other buggy parts.

1.0PR (Preview Release) should be coming out tommorow, unless something needs to be changed in the code quick. It has better protection from wrong version themes and extensions, among myriads of other fixes. It's pretty close to what the final 1.0 will be like, at least anything that needs to be localized/translated will no longer change to assist earlier translations.
