Yes, userChrome.css is simply a CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) file that can modify the appearance of Firefox. See here for tips and tricks to modify it:

Note, userChrome.css does not exist by default, so you'd have to create it yourself.
Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060909 Firefox/1.5.0.7
Thunderbird: version 1.5.0.7 (20060909)

UserChrome.css is in the chrome folder in the profile folder: Profile Folder
(it is not in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile\ folder)
C:\Documents and Settings\*window user*\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*xxxxxxxx.default*\chrome (Application Data is a hidden folder)
You will find the userChrome-example.css file there.
You can rename that file to userChrome.css and edit the content with a plain text editor like Notepad.
If you use another editor then make sure that you do not save the file formatted (eg. rtf or unicode).

There are many examples in this long thread: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=244616
