It's a minor thing, yes, and the hard-core users won't need it, but it would be
helpful (and more user-friendly) to ensure that the alternate-stylesheets icon
in the bottom left of the status bar is more recognizeable as a pop-up menu.

Perhaps you should add an arrow like the Quick Search had added to it (hinting
at old Apple User Interface Guidelines)?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Go to the site.  Note that the alternate stylesheet icon appears in the status
bar.  People may think of it as a mere warning of some sort (like the pop-up
exclamation) instead of as a menu to select another style.

If-or-when AltSS comes back, please file a new bug if whatever sort of UI it uses (which is more likely to be the next generation of stuff-things-in-the-urlbar) doesn't look active enough.
