There is a one pixel rendering buglet that has been fixed in Firefox 
1.5b1. I had originally added a one pixel offset to overcome this but 
then it created a reciprocal buglet in Firefox 1.5b1, Konqueror and 
Opera. I thought about it and felt that since it is not my problem I 
shouldn't worry about it.  Eventually , in a few months, Firefox 1.5 
will be released and it wont be an issue. I also thought that by the 
time we have a stable Thunar release possibly Firefox 1.5 will be 
released and included in some distributions.

>2) the sidepane should be smaller, probably using smaller fonts.
I originally thought that 0.8em (or 80%) would be best but as Jannis so 
rightly pointed out 1em represented the users font setting and shouldn't 
be undercut. As an example I use a 14pt font in  Firefox which makes the 
web page look good to me. If I decrease the sidebar text to 0.8em it is 
too small. If I increase the font so the sidebar text is more legible 
the main content text is then too big. Anyway, what everyone feels is 
better OK with me.

Note that I have made the sidebar smaller, it is now 10em not 14em.

When all the other Thunar web pages are in the top pane the current page 
is highlighted, to let the user know where they are. I did think about 
this before and going to a page that wasn't highlighted looked odd by 
comparison and it didn't seem right to highlight only a few items in the 
sidebar. I will look at ways to fix this.
