In general it looks too busy compared to the 1.x download progress
dialog, those buttons are too small and easily missed and the menu
dropdowns seem out of place on a dialog. Even when you requested
feedback about this on your blog most of the comments were negative.
Now I realize this is subjective and that you think "progress dialogs
are soo backwards, only really old software uses such a thing". Also I
know you have done a lot of work on SeaMonkey but you obviously hate
dialogs and anything resembling them to the point that you have no
objectivity when it comes to this area.
