Such a good browser deserves a much more beautiful alert. The current one (v. 39) is too ugly for words and gives a very cheap impression (as does the new Options window appearance, for that matter).

Hi, thank you for your suggestions, however this is Mozilla Support where we try to solve problems, so if you have feedback for Mozilla please could you post it here, where it will be seen by the developers.
Will do, Scribe. Thanks for the redirect.
Hmm, I'm not sure the modal alert() dialog is considered a good user experience. Perhaps making it more beautiful will encourage more use, rather than use of info-bars or other in-page displays, which are less disruptive?
I don't know the best way to engage the user experience team on an issue like this. If you are highly motivated to work on this further:
The team members are listed here: https://blog.mozilla.org/ux/who-we-are/
They have a Twitter account here: https://twitter.com/MozillaUX
@jscher2000 -- The unique 'selling point' of an alert is that it blocks the functionality of the rest of the page. Which I need like oxygen, as a professional form maker. I am now working on an extensive medical form in which patients first have to answer two questions before they continue, because some of the other questions adapt themselves to the selected answers.
