Thanks for the feedback. I do appreciate the constructive criticism - I certainly don't get enough of it generally. I've attached another beta below - please check it out.

While this may simplify things, it gets rid of the fundamental principle that an extension developer can change their icon on mouseover to whatever they want. Your CSS should not be touching the icons of any buttons that are not built in to the theme.
Admittedly I was a bit too presumptuous with this one, as I was hoping to style buttons not native to the theme in the same way as native buttons. I'm still keeping this use of CSS filters though, but only applying it to the native buttons, as I don't feel there's a need to have separate images for each button state when the same thing can be applied using filters now. Back in the Firefox 3 days, sure, but not now.
As for your other concerns:

They look the same as Firefox 3's tabs, unless you can point out anything to the contrary.

Where..? The below are from Windows 10, but I also checked on Windows 7 too and saw no issues like this.
With regards to other things fixed in this version:

Then again, I'm the same person that has been using the Windows "high contrast black" theme for possibly over a decade now and have even used it across Windows versions (at least XP and 7), so I'm used to having programs not match my OS theme.
(there's also the fact that I do a lot with emulation, so I'm extremely used to running software that was originally designed for a completely different hardware platform let alone a different OS)
Please give the beta I've attached a go - I've had a thought about this and come to a compromise with this. I've changed the appmenu again, more like the original, but not exactly. It feels a lot better (in my opinion) - though please let me know if it's not what you were thinking.
"Normal" mode (not maximised):
