Lack of border around add-on list looks awkward when items have shaded backgrounds and/or are scrolled (halfway) out of the viewport of the scrollable list

Don't know how much of this is OMGchange reaction with myself, but I think this: http://imgur.com/SADe1vG

looks really odd. I think the list should have a border, or the shading needs updating so it doesn't look so odd without borders.

The effect is even worse when this is a scrollable container that's floating into space and where letters get arbitrarily cut off without any indication there's a border there.

Richard tells me this was a UX decision. I'd really like this to be reconsidered. Michael/Philipp, can you comment?

Personally, I'm fine with it.

I sincerely hope that the situation where virtually every add-on has the »warning« background is temporary. After that I think it should be good enough. It feels a lot less weird when actually using it, since you have the context of just having scrolled somewhere.

... except of course before you do that there are no scrollbars visible on (default-configured) OS X, at least...
Removing the bottom padding from .main-content should fix the viewport issue.

Totally agree! (just wanted to report a bug for this myself...)

The bottom padding looks incredibly weird (when scrolling items come from nowhere!). Also it is not on par with about:preferences where no padding is present (neither on top nor on bottom).
