Description

One of the nice things about Firefox 1.5 beta is that the browser window now
displays its own message when the server is not found. Unfortunately it looks
really ugly when the page is being loaded from the sidebar instead of the main
window. I suggest that instead of this page, just display a simple xul window
with a label that says "This panel is currently unavailable". This way the
message is displayed clearly in a way that fits into the size of the sidebar.

Can I see a screenshot of the existing behavior?

Serve Not Found page does not look good in the sidebar.

As you can see, the special "not found" pages should not be applied to pages
displayed in the sidebar. Instead display a straightforward message without any
formatting.
