Firefox goes back to flat toolbar buttons

Recent Firefox nightlies feature more bits from Australis, the new major theme update. This time, toolbar buttons have gone flat, featuring no borders but when hovering them.

As with all things fashion, this is a back to past: Firefox 1 through 3.6 all featured flat buttons. Here’s a Firefox 1 screenshot.
