Also I doesn't like the icon changes in FF3preRC1, compared to in FF3B5. Here is a screenshot of them: <http://img185.imageshack.…b5to3prerc1changesry1.png> I liked the old ones better. (Try it yourself to experience the differences in the window appearance. I preferred the old lighter Back/Forward buttons. And I preferred the old Privacy icon as well with the red mark on it.

In addition I have just discovered that the bookmark manager (CTRL+SHIFT+B) has been downgraded in functions. Now it is no longer possible to make the left window narrower/wider or hidden by dragging or clicking on the horizontal border. Also the same is not possible with the bottom box where you can edit the 'Name','keyword' and so on

P.S. Maybe the in this comment mentioned bad changes is because I tried FF3preRC1 "portable style*". (*with "Portable style" I mean like this: <http://portableapps.com/node/12721> or this: <http://portableapps.com/node/12311>
