"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.

So some people seems to like the envelope image and some want pure visual usability why not make a switch in the preferences to toggle between a state with nice pictures (yes i like them, and would find it a pitty to kick them out for usability reasons) and one without.

This should make both partys happy, and also solve some width problems.

Just one point for the "envelope"-picture: When I think of a real killer-user: My mother, she is already confused when ns4 opens all this windows (like mail compose) with different use. For users like her this describing images are quite usefull. A real linux user shoud have the possibility to get rid of all this completly unnecessary image staff and have just the first letter of each function (reduce to the max) B F R S Back Forward Reload Stop
