I find that the buttons in the Theme and Extension dialogs are confusing because
they are only images --true, if you hover the mouse just so you'll get a tooltip
with a description. but I think it'd be better/clearer to have text as part of
the button label --perhaps an image+brief text? other 3rd party themes manage to
add this (as does the default Win/Linux theme, iirc).

couldn't find an existing bug, but please dup as needed. am also filing the
equivalent for Thunderbird...
tbird bug is 281975.

I think we did this on purpose, Kevin, this is a good point, but if its wrong on
Mac, then we can wontfix and move on.

I agree, this is a problem. I was following the Mac convention of the control
buttons seen in Mac Mail.app and elsewhere. I'd like to try a bevel button with
just text inside, no graphic...

This patch cleans up the Extensions and the Downloads windows. I agree that the
buttons with images and no text were confusing. This patch turns them into
bevel buttons with text only, no images.
