The pop-up blocker already does this. Security lock kind of does. RSS and style-switcher need them too. Ideally, the icons should have extra attention brought to them the first time they appear, maybe by flashing, showing and arrow, etc. The message could be in either a dialog or in an info bar. RSS should say something like: This web site offers its content as a feed. Feeds can be added to your bookmarks as a live bookmark using the icon in the status bar. [RSS icon] _Read more about Live Bookmarks_ [link to appropriate section in help]. Style Switcher: This web site is available in more than one visual style. The style may be changed by using this icon in the status bar. [AltSS icon] _Read more about Style Switching_ [link to appropriate section in help]. All these dialogs should have a "[ ] Show this message every time" that defaults unchecked. The security lock icon should be incorporated into the security.warn_entering_secure dialog so that the correlation between the icon and security is made. The dialog should also be edited to mention that the site's domain is shown next to the lock. I somehow doubt it's possible to get all these strings in before PR, but I think this would be a win for newbies/novices. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
I'll go ahead and mark blocking?. This would require a lot of word-choice debate and late-l10n, but the worst that can happen is I get minused. It wouldn't be the first time ;-)

Flags: blocking-aviary1.0? → blocking-aviary1.0-
So with AltSS still disabled this has slipped into Fx2.0 at the earliest?
First-use dialogs should be rarely used. They make out of the box experience much worse, and don't really act as anything other than a crutch for suboptimal design.
