That means there should be a better separation between the backend and frontend code. Of course the Firefox developers are even more guilty of pushing their personal UI choices so this is likely intentional. I understand the backend switch is the reason the password manager was changed as well. Unfortunately there is a definite anti-modal dialog bias here (and having the old about dialog pref be called "browser.show_about_as_stupid_modal_window" certainly supports this). The problem is the developers aren't developing stuff just for themselves, they're developing for a general audience with varied tastes and varied ways of working. The developers seem to not get this or not to care. _______________________________________________ support-seamonkey mailing list email@example.com https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/support-seamonkey
