Oh come now.

Eh, full disclosure, shouldn't you make your background/bais better known if you are sure you want to continue this discussion?

Background/bias disclosure statement: I had nothing to do with either of the designs in question.

(I designed some details of the advanced Fonts and JavaScript settings for the Mozilla suite, but those ended up roughly the same in Firefox anyway.)

Usability has to occasionaly weigh up the cost of change against other factors like techincal support.

Agreed. It's a shame that, for example, the route to the proxy settings has changed between Firefox 1 and 2. But both of them were hugely better than Netscape in that regard.
