This is a very small error, but I think it makes a nice customization option 
somewhat unclear. In the Navigator prefs dialog, this line:
"Select the buttons that should be visible from the list below"

Should be changed to:
"Select the buttons you want to see in the personal toolbar"

The title of the section should be "Personal toolbar" (note lowercase "t") 
rather than the current title (Toolbar Customization)

Adding polish keyword.

-> me...

I disagree about the change to "Personal toolbar".  The tree includes other 
buttons you can show/hide that aren't on the personal toolbar, but on the 
Navigation toolbar (e.g. Print, Search)

You're right -- sorry! Let's just go with "Toolbars" as the heading for this 
group, then.

Blake, do you mind if I take this bug from you? I would like to fix a bunch of 
wording bugs and check them in together.  Thanks, jglick.

Vera, per our conversion:

1. Change "Personal toolbar" to "Toolbars"
2. Change "Select the buttons you want to see in the personal toolbar." to
   "Select the buttons you want to see in the Toolbar."

Correct?  Thanks.

Vera, item #2, do you want "Toolbar" capitalized?

Marking nsbeta3+ since jglick can fix this.

Nope -- we're not capitalizing "toolbar." Here's what I've got:

Group heading: "Toolbars"
Explanatory text: "Select the buttons you want to see in the toolbars."

Is Toolbars really better than Toolbar Customization?  It seems like a step 
down.  However, if the change is being made because `customization' is somewhat 
redundant (of course you're customizing it, the whole purpose of the 
preferences dialog is to customize the app) then I guess I can understand it.

No, I just don't like the word "customization." It's just a quirk of mine.

Note bug # 51154 -- I'm accepting Matthew's proposed changes in lieu of mine. We 
can close this one as a duplicate of that bug, if everyone agrees.

I was not aware of bug 51154 until this morning. :-(   I implemented the changes 
 proposed in this bug:

1. Change "Personal toolbar" to "Toolbars"
2. Change "Select the buttons you want to see in the personal toolbar." to
   "Select the buttons you want to see in the toolbar."
