Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.4pre) Gecko/20091006 Shredder/3.0pre

When we show "Shredder failed to find the settings for your email account", there's usually something wrong with the settings that needs attention.

current
- the error message looks like a normal headline, and is hidden in the middle of the dialogue
- we even show a green light next to username (if applicable)
- we don't show anything visual to indicate "there's something wrong that needs your attention"

expected
- at least show yellow exclamation mark icon in front of error message (head)line: /!\ "Shredder failed to find the settings for your email account"
- this will indicate to user "there's something wrong that needs your attention"
- consider other ways of making this more obvious as a message (rather than a static headline of the dialogue UI), e.g. light yellow background as in tooltips

Would this be marked [has l10n impact] ?
I don't think so. This should be doable solely with XUL + CSS without any impact on .properties or .dtd files.
