>Bookmarks have improved a lot recently, but think of focus bugs. If users open links in a new window, they\\\'ll intuitively expect content area to have focus. It does not. Stuff like that is important. It\\\'s a minor issue, but annoying and user-visible.

YES!!! This is VERY important! I am a new user of Mozilla and such (easy to fix!) inconsistencies really annoys newcomers! Try to browse some local directory with .URL and .HTM[L] files with MSIE and with Mozilla and you will feel the difference. MSIE is much easier to use. Mozilla\\\'s keyboard handling is weird and incomplete.
