Firefox preferences window V
Ben Goodger, the mind behind several UI components in Firefox, has updated his blog with interesting news regarding the upcoming version V of the preferences window, which will be more fitting with the Mac and Gnome.
For the past week I've been working on a new Preferences window for Firefox - one which will solve a number of the problems present in the current one, such as the fact that it's a modal sheet on OS X and GNOME.
I'm developing this on Windows, since that's where the good debuggers and editors are, the modality/instant-apply-ness of the window will be controlled by a hidden pref. Much is left for me to do, but here's a sneak peek of what's coming: http://www.bengoodger.com/software/mb/options/prefwindowv/options.png
