The style of the toolbar, with a line between the menu and toolbar, don't match the one on Firefox that sports a more united appearance.

Has this been testing in XP?  maybe I can get philor to look at this in XP

I like the new toolbar look but I'm wondering if we need a messenger-aero.css file when the difference of the two is so small.

Here's what I have for the diff of the two files:

--- messenger.css       Wed Aug  5 09:54:45 2009
+++ messenger-aero.css  Wed Aug  5 09:54:45 2009
@@ -13,7 +13,9 @@

 .toolbar-primary {
   -moz-binding: url("chrome://global/content/bindings/toolbar.xml#toolbar");
+  -moz-appearance: none;
   border-top-style: none;
+  border-top-width: 0px;

I've included an alternate style patch to this problem.  Essentially when most of the windows XP and Vista CSS is going to be shared we should be using this style that I learned from philor.

The differences are this: has a "*" in front of the line which tells the compile to pre-process the file.  Essentially meaning it will use the include to make the new file with all the CSS rules appended to the bottom of the new file.  This works really well for CSS.

messenger.css only has the different CSS rules that are needed for the Vista components.

What does suck about this is that from now on any line numbers related to CSS errors in Vista can be wrong.  However the aero override file should be small and if the line number is larger than the file you know you're looking at the aero file instead of the original included file.
maybe I should add philor if I want him to look at the patch
also you should try this one since my misspelling of messenger makes that other patch not work
