Overall it looks nice. I like the smaller header, the removal of "This
is" from the header, the header's rounded corners, the use of a sans
serif font for UI elements (headers, labels, buttons), the removal of
the underline decoration from linked UI elements (buttons, linked
labels), and the updated color scheme.
I don't like the switch to a sans serif font for all text, the explicit
reduction of font size, and the explicit specification of font face,
however. We should continue to use a serif font for regular text (I
know this is controversial, but my review of the literature shows that
sans serif is still more readable on the web at normal font sizes) and
use the OS/browser default font size and face (since it is more likely
to be and remain optimized for each user's machine).
I'm ambivalent about the body background, which is virtually invisible,
and the use of a background image for the header, whose advantages over
styled text and structure seem too slight to be worth it.
Otherwise I'm happy to see these changes get integrated into Bugzilla.
Please file bugs in the UI component and request my review. Note that
in general smaller, focused patches are easier to review and quicker to
integrate than larger patches that do many things at once, so consider
breaking your changes up into separate patches for each change or
related set of changes.
