User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8.1a2) Gecko/20060512 BonEcho/2.0a2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8.1a2) Gecko/20060512 BonEcho/2.0a2

When using Windows Classic, the new search button does not look like a button. Ideally, it should more closely match the location bar dropdown arrow.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open BonEcho a2 in Windows pre-XP or XP with the Classic theme
2.Observe search button
3.Note flatness and dissimilarity to location bar dropdown arrow.

Actual Results:  
Average user may not realise search button is clickable.

Expected Results:  
Clickability of search button should be clear.

userChrome rules for a better button

This is what I came up with by playing around with userChrome.css - results in a more button-like button.
