User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 Firefox/2.0b2

For me (a mildly colorblind person) this is particularly noticeable on the forward/back buttons: the 'active' version of the button looks too much like the inactive version, and while I can distinguish between them, it requires a more direct look.   

If the active buttons were slightly darker or more saturated it would be easier to  quickly differentiate between the two versions, even out of the corner of my eye.  People with more pronounced color-blindness would likely have more difficulty with this than I do.

There have been substantial changes since 2.0b2.
