Instead of sliding the new mail alert up into view and then sliding it back down, fade the alert in and then fade it away.

This looks a lot smoother than the scroll which tends to get a bit jerky.

In addition to replacing the scrolling animation with fade in / fade out, I removed some dead code from newmailalert.js and renamed the animation boolean argument to aUserInitiated.

Behaviorally, the fade only occurs when the alert is automatically generated. If the user clicks on the biff icon to open the alert, we show it immediately without any fade.

The fix does not work for me.  I'm assuming that the whole box is supposed to fade out, but instead the text inside fades out, and then the box dissapears.

I see the same using current 2.0b1pre en-US nightlies on Windows XP. Is there a bug number for this?
