Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

This will allow the FDT (heh) to develop an action plan for the milestones between now and 1.0, prioritize bugs and so on. It's essential that people start doing this now, rather than later, otherwise bugs might slip through the cracks!" Further details are available in Ben's posting to the Firefox forums.

This is untrue. Many Windows programs (especially the newer ones) do *not* have the 3D borders you mentioned. I think Firefox adheres to newer Windows UI guidelines than the programs you used for reference. (Also notice that your attached screenshot is based on the Windows 9x/2000 interface, which itself is considered obsolete by some. Personally, I prefer the 'classic' UI design, but many new applications nowadays use the Office XP styling instead. Office XP does not have the additional 3D borders in the toolbars either.)
