I just noticed that the image for aurora is quite small when compared to the one in nightly. Due to the additional colors on the intro page for Nightly and Aurora these appname.bmp dimensions need to be 4 times the result dimensions to blend properly as we found out when the stub was first implemented. I've attached a sample using the nightly bitmap with additional space below it for "Developer Edition"

shorlander, see comment #0 for an explanation. I think a larger bitmap than in the patch would be appropriate for this.

I am fairly certain that this is due to rounding issues and using the smaller dimension bitmap.
As can be seen "Firefox" is larger on the stub in aurora than it is in nightly yet the source bitmap for aurora is smaller than it is in nightly.

Also note how the smaller bitmap on aurora has much larger border edges than used by nightly.

I'm certain more could be done but I think this is good enough. Specifically, appname.bmp could have edges that are closer to the intro page color but then the background of the download / install page would need to be changed to a color closer to he background of the intro page and the other bitmaps on the download / install page would need their edges changes to a color closer to that same color. Basically what we have on the other channels.

BTW: this image isn't used in Nightly so its affect will only be seen on Aurora
