Why is there a gray shaded strip across my toolbars, and how do I get rid of it?
There is a shaded gray bar covering my bookmark and RoboForm toolbars that makes it difficult to see and select different websites. I want it gone. I have installed a dozen different themes and the problem persists. My toolbars contain banking websites that I visit and so I am not interested in sharing a screenshot. What I described is what it is. A solution would be much appreciated - thanks.

Try the CTR extension.
Look at the setting(s) in the CTR Options/Preferences here:
- CTR Options > Toolbars (3)
Firefox 44+ has a semi-opaque white-ish appearance to the main toolbar and corresponding tab when you use a custom theme. Depending on your OS, the size and coloration may vary.
The Classic Theme Restorer extension is a very comprehensive tool for modifying the user interface and might be overkill, but after I describe the second option, you might prefer it anyway.
If you do not use CTR and don't want to change any other settings, you could consider using a custom style rule. For example: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1106538#answer-836566. See the following screen shot for what that does (on Windows 7, at least).
