Fixed. And made sure the size is consistent across browsers.

Can't do much about that even if we had a vector version :-( One
possibility is to let it bleed into the rest of the text. Not a good
choice IMO.

Not all browsers support enough of CSS to change the button image, but
they should fall back to showing the button label. How does it not look
right? Is it too small? (I just changed it so for a possible fix in this
case) Is the text messed up somehow?

Again, not all browsers are smart enough :-( For example IE doesn't
display the rollover frame highlight on the menu either.

Changed now, it might still be slow as my upload bandwidth is only a T1.

Yes, done.

It's a Firefox only problem AFAIK. Minor problem though ;-)

Nice catch! Fixed now.
