Version 3.0.2 497.7 kB Works with Firefox 3.0b2 - 3.0b5pre

This update resolves the issue with menu button text (e.g. File, Edit, View, etc.) disappearing on Linux when the button is active. The padding between the unified large toolbar buttons has been eliminated. This update also eliminates some more white space between menu items on menus.
