The build I use [0], supplied by Parabola, works in the way you'd like
with a dark theme, though I don't use GNOME, but XFCE - with the
xcfe-dusk theme.
For some reason though, Iceweasel [1], also as supplied by Parabola,
does have a white toolbar.

You could find out how Prabola's IceCat is compiled by reading its
PKGBUILD [2] and build it accordingly on your own or simply try the
binary as supplied by GNU first. Though there seem to be some (minor)
problems running the mentioned binary on Fedora, as has been discussed
in this mailinglist some days ago.
