Which theme can make a noticable distinction amongst active vs inactive Firefox windows?

With the new "tab line", all the tab-line looks the same across multiple Firefox windows: they have the same background color, and the only difference is that those "inactive windows" shall have tab-names in a slightly fainted color.

Attached is a screenshot with a "custom theme", as configured here:

Please advise if I am missing something super simple to configure: basically, I'd like to apply a different background color when the Firefox window is inactive. (The Solarized dark theme does part of the job, by leaving an noticeable boarder when the Firefox window is not maximized.)

It also helps if I can completely disable this new "theme" feature and restore to the the old way that these "tab-lines" are rendered.

Thanks a lot!

Until there is a new version of the userChrome.css fix as linked here, I will stay with the Arc Theme. This theme makes the tab texts in inactive windows a bit more fainted, compared against other themes I tested. Although the rest of the tab-line area is still having a solid and invariant color, the fainted text from Arc Theme works for now.

See a screenshot below.

Looking forward to a proper solution to apply different tab-line colors depending on whether the Firefox window is active or not.
