The bottom-right corner of the initial "Loading ..." notification on the new Add-ons manager for Firefox 4.0 beta 11 (and older betas, probably all betas) is very noticeable blurred / of lower quality compared to the other corners. The top-right corner is of a similar quality, but it isn't as jarring to look at as the bottom-right.

For clarification, this is the notification that appears when you first open the Add-ons manager while it loads the "What are Add-ons" page with the Featured / Top Add-ons.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Add-ons Manager
2. Look at the bottom-right corner of the Loading notification that appears while the "What are Add-ons" page loads.

Does it also happen when you disable hardware acceleration in the advanced pane of the preferences?

Yes, it still happens with hardware acceleration turned off.

Simple CSS fix. Makes things more pretty.

I don't actually have a development environment set up to test this, so I'll just assume it looks good :)

Unless there is a way I can modify the built-in theme / make the changes in userChrome.css to see how they look?

Matt, could you please re-test with a todays nightly and check if it is fixed for you? Thanks.
Henrik, Minefield 2011-02-17 looks a lot better than Firefox 4.0 Beta 11, it's still not brilliant though. 

I think it's the drop-shadow being visible in the bottom-right which makes the lighter coloured pixels (due to the anti-aliasing) of that corner's border look out of place. They seem to stand-out for no obvious reason. Maybe I'm being too picky :)

I've attached a mock-up which shows how it looks if the border is made darker, but I'm not sure if this is something that would be easy to do within the scope of Firefox.
Given your screenshot I tend to say we can mark it as verified fixed. Any remaining issue is probably related to hw acceleration or layout. If you think it should be fixed please file a new bug. Thanks.
