I still see some problems with the latest version with Firefox 2.0.0.4:

The effect when expanding/collapsing the "more options" stuff is choppy - 
seems as if it is happening in 3 separate successive steps instead of smootly 
sliding into/out of the view (which I guess is the intention).

While switching between the tabs with "more options" minimized, the gray area 
of the options dialog for each newly selected view is initially of the size 
when "more options" would be expanded, then quickly afterwards it switches to 
the correct minimized size.  This also causes jumping content problems for 
things below the gray area.
