So what's wrong with it, it uses slightly wrong widgets or something? Big deal. I use it every day and am perfectly happy with it. (I'm not testing Ff 2 on my Mac, though, since I'm still on OS X 10.3 and apparently this beta crashes all the time on that platform due to a since-fixed bug.)

If I were to pick a Mac platform integration issue that could benefit from a fix, it would be to make it use Keychain for passwords. I guess that's not exactly a major priority and would be a platform difference which Firefox tries to minimise, but it happens to annoy me personally since I record all significant passwords in keychain anyhow. (That's backed up, while my browser profile is not.)
