Mozilla & Gecko clones Today, Mozilla released the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0. After a period of what I would call stagnation, the Mozilla team are back on track with delivering interesting UI concepts. They were sensible enough to copy Chrome's excellent tabs-on-top UI, but have now also added something called Panorama, a new and very interesting way of managing your open tabs.

These are a few I bumped into and saved. If you asked hundreds of developers, the list would be endless.

Cannot select or edit or search generated content and alt text [GC] (1999-08-25)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12460

All stylesheets are loaded regardless of rendering media (2001-05-05)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79021

Persist alternate stylesheet selection using content prefs (2003-08-18)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216537

Anything else, I gave up and went with other functionality. I don’t file many bugs because I have zero faith in the bug system.

Mozilla should spend a release cycle doing nothing but bug-bears (oldest bugs with the most votes). I’ve had to dump great, elegant pieces of code because of 10 year old Gecko bugs.

"Persist alternate stylesheet selection using content prefs (2003-08-18)

opera has persite settings.

much less convenient (normal users will never try):
usercontent.css can wrap styles in domain (something like persite)
this says is compatible with ff 3.0-3.6.*

or you can use proxo to set stylesheet(s) depending on url.
you can base style on other than the url, but may risk applying stylesheet later in the page, which can cause page to jiggle around when browser finally reads your css. (i suspect I've seen ajax also cause similar symptoms.)
