#19 A few niggles

I have reverted to 1.0.6 for now, mainly because the Roboform adapter isn't compatible with 1.1. Once they have updated that, I will reinstall 1.1, but I do have a few niggles:

1. Spellchecker dictionaries don't install properly, without unzipping the XML package, and manually installing it. Not much of an issue, but a bit of a faff, and many users won't know how to do this.

2. Alt+S no longer works as a shortcut to post in forums. This is an extremely useful feature, which I use all the time. See <http://forums.mozillazine…rg/viewtopic.php?t=446830> for fix, but why has this happened? Is it just a genuine mistake, which will be rectified in future versions? As Firefox 2.0 also suffers this affliction, I am lead to believe it was a deliberate change. Guys, if it ain't broke...

3. The address bar colour for secure websites looks like a nasty vomit yellow on my screen. Is there any way to change this to something equally noticable, but more aesthetically pleasing?

4. The new feature in the mail client that blocks some content - is there any way to turn this off? There doesn't seem to be a 'white list' type function for this, and the constant alerts will soon become tiresome.
