Hi all,

no reason to worry too soon here, since there is a former FS employee from 
Germany on Mozilla's  Accessibility team.

Subject: Upcoming Firefox version 4

Hi. Today's Wall Street Journal has an article about version 4 of Firefox that 
is about to be released. Speed and look appear to be the featured improvements. 
But the following passage makes me wonder about accessibility and whether 
screenreader users might be advised to wait before upgrading:

Gone are the layers of tool bars, status bars, the bookmark bar. Instead there 
is a row of tabs-much like Chrome. Interestingly, Mozilla is sticking to the 
more traditional address box on the left and search box on the right like IE 
and Safari. Chrome has combined the search box and address box into one.
