Changes/Improvements:
! Better RDR cursor graphic
! Options/Help window will now accurately fit its contents (thanks TEO!)
! Code improvements for "Element properties"
! Made important domain parts in the help dialog italic for easier spotting
! updated default filters
! Improved link detection in base64 encodes to reduce false-positives

Fixed bugs:
- JavaScript links not being cleaned or cleaned incorrectly
- "RDR cursor" would not be displayed in some cases
- Default filters weren't always printed in italics
- Status Bar Button was overlayed by its context menu (prevents accidentally activating the 1st menu option on Linux)
- Wrong tooltip shown on button's context menu entries (This is a workaround for Firefox 2.0. The responsible bug is fixed in Firefox 3.0)
