In the great updates to the new Modern skin, the Search button is shorter (not as tall as) the URL bar and looks a little squished as a result, and a bit weak considering it's importance. Search is the #1 activity people do within a browser - the button should be the same height as the URL bar. Part of the Usability theory was to make this look like a field with a search/submit button on a web page - in that case the button and the field are the same height. The button feels a bit too "weak" as it is now. If you made it smaller to look more like the keyword drop down list, I would submit that is a mistake. Nice idea to balance the UI like that, but the Search button should be the strongest button and the keyword button should be the weakest button, so they should not balance each other. If it looks better, you can go ahead and make the keyword button smaller if that helps the overall UI as you increase the size of the Search button.

that was the intention to have the search button the same height as URL bar,
The buttons are being redesigned, so this will be fixed soon.
marking nsbeta3- if there is a fix to be checked in here it will have to go under the Modern Polish Fixes bug
Seems like the search button is as tall as the URL bar in modern. Is there something wrong with my vision, or is this fixed?
well i am not an ophthalmologist but the new search button IS as big as the URL bar.
So can we mark this fixed? johng?
