Details

There are a number of places where radio buttons are inexplicably being used as if they were tabs, for instance the preferences, addons window and page info window.

These should instead be tabs, or if there is some reason why tabs aren't usable here, we should fix that problem and use tabs, or create some other widget if needed.

If fixing this would fix bug 453714 (Ctrl-Tab and Ctrl-PgDn don't work) and bug 453716 (doesn't indicate keyboard focus), maybe those bugs should depend on this bug.
This is a good idea, that styling we're using for those radios IMHO looks out of place on Linux and Windows - even though it looks fine on Mac.
Perhaps there's some good way to keep the styling on Mac even though it's tabs behind the scenes, and make them look more consistent with native widgets on the other platforms.
