"Mozilla will be getting a new look very soon. The Modern theme has been redesigned to be a little easier on the eyes. The new look includes a lighter shade of blue, colored toolbar button icons, and lots of other little touches. Bear with me as I land this sometime in the next week or so, as there will surely be bugs. The design is still evolving and there are likely to be frequent changes (for example, dialog buttons will not be black for long after landing)."

Joe also sent us a screenshot for you to check out, stay tuned for more info on this landing.

#12 Down-arrow button?

What's that huge down-arrow button to the left of the URL field? I assume that it's the pulldown button for the list of previously-entered URLs. If so, it should be attached to the right side of the field, not orphaned off on the right. People know what combo boxes (Win) and popup menus (Mac) look like. I don't think it's very smart to reinvent such a common UI element, especially when the result takes up more space and looks awkward.
