WFM.  Is this the default Firefox theme?  And what Windows theme are you using?
Version: unspecified → Trunk
Same here with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008051606 Minefield/3.0pre ID:2008051606.

Version: Trunk → 3.0 Branch
Sorry, meant WFM.

The Problem is connected with the MS Zune Style for Windows XP. When I use XP Standard or the MCE Theme everything is OK.

Okay, I see.  Yea, toolbar separators are messed up on Zune in general; this is not a problem specific to Firefox.  If you look at the Windows Explorer toolbar, you'll see that the separators there become very faint--to the point of invisibility--too with Zune.  This affects everything on the system, so there's not much that Firefox could do about it, unfortunately.

> But it is better in Fx 2...

That's because Firefox 2 didn't render toolbar separators natively.  So you could say that Firefox 2's toolbar separator rendering was incorrect and buggy, but it just so happens that on the Zune theme, that incorrect rendering looked better because the native Zune rendering is itself messed up.

You can force a non-native rendering by adding the following to your userChrome.css:

toolbarseparator {
  -moz-appearance: none !important;

More information about userChrome.css can be found here:
Due to it's not the fault of Firefox it should be INVALID.
