I might respect Internet Explorer when Microsoft respect me and scrap IE's useless error pages. I still find IE to be particularly horrible to deal with any time there's the slightest hiccup.
My points of contention with Firefox's image display are a) the mottled backdrop just looks stupid, and b) for 32-bit PNG, it puts a separate ...
Yeah, the password pasting restriction is quite bizarre. Must be designed by people who haven't figured out that copying and pasting saves a lot of grief with mistyped passwords, usernames, and e-mail addresses (including getting the domain name wrong).

So far as I know, Windows 8 only permits changing the caption colour in the high contrast schemes. For no reason (hence the WTF) you are banned from altering the caption colour otherwise, despite using one single theme again!
[quote user="PJH"]Clicking the title bar in either of the active title bars or the inactive title bar changes the 'item' being edited.[/quote]
Well I never … I am familiar with that panel (and with altering the Registry settings to achieve effects not possible using the UI), but I was certain that the title bar colour did ...
