Is Firefox 2 final still going to keep the Luna look in terms of the colors for menus, etc.? It does not look good on older versions of Windows (for example, the three Windows 98 machines in my apartment). With Firefox 1.5, users had to install a separate extension ("Classic Menus for Winstripe") to restore the classic menus. I thought that this would not be necessary in Firefox 2?

Also, <…t/firefox/tips#appearance> gives tips for editing UserChrome.css to have either Windows XP styled menus, or classic menus. Is the default in Firefox 1.5 and 2 the Windows XP style?

Lastly, I hope we will be able to remove the Search and URL Go buttons.
