When Mozilla is made inactive/moved to the background, the text in dialogs and windows needs to dim. Currently, only titlebars for windows and dialogs will dim. This is super-standard Macintosh behavior. Depending on how previous versions of Communicator and other internet browsers and applications handle this, you'll have to decide how far to go with this. At the very least, I'd expect text in the location field and dialogs to dim when moved into the background.

Summary: Interface elements need to dim while in background → Interface elements need to dim while (deactivated) in background; window control
I don't care so much about the text, but it is important that widgets like scrollbars, buttons, and controls dim when the window is inactive. The first hit on an inactive control on Mac OS activates it/makes it the focus, it does not trigger the control, so if inactive controls are drawn active you can't tell what clicking a control does - make it the focus or trigger it. This is especially annoying on large monitors that can have several Mozilla windows, all of which look active.
