Screenshot of problem

On Windows XP, the Filelink account management pane looks a bit funny.  In particular:

1)  It looks like the Add / Remove buttons are being cut off at the bottom
2)  The Dropbox / YouSendIt panels have scrollbars

See screenshot.
Blocks: 698925

For problem (1) (Add / Remove buttons being cut off at the bottom), it looks like the cloudFileAuthErrorPanel is oversized, causing the tabpanels to be too large for the preferences dialog.

Upon further investigation, it looks like the "key" graphic in that dialog might be a bit too large for Windows XP.  Can we use a smaller version for XP?

The fix

I got some scrollbars when trying to use the classic theme on Windows 7.
Therefore I think we need to insert a media selector in preferences-aero.css specifically for Windows7 default theme. It should look something like this:

@media all and (-moz-windows-default-theme) {
  #provider-management {

and then below that the patches current #provider-management class. The current #provider-management in preferences.css should be good as they are, as it's values will be overwritten by the ones in preferences-aero.css only under Windows Vista and 7.
