Still has the god-awful eyeball-burning new theme. When is that going to be fixed? While I enjoy the performance of the nightlies, they are like sandpaper on my eyes.

People complain about it left and right. It's a common topic in the comments every time FF3 is submitted to Digg. I don't look forward to having to install a 3rd-party theme every time I do a FF3 install just to avoid user backlash.
