"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.

There's just a little problem with the mail / news toolbar. While the envelope looks cool, it eats up some space from the toolbar. For mail & news, that's ok, but for the browser, it's unacceptable. So there are two choices: a) have toolbars of two different styles b) drop the image

Personally I don't like option a. I find it very unprofessional to have that kind of inconsistency!
