Firefox Aurora 31.0a2, Windows 8.1, 1600x900 resolution, 17px minimum font size.

As previously noted:
Love the new design (and functionalities)!
Starting at 15px minimum font size, the menu 'boxes' overlap the menu bar and the little DW twirls are a bit too close to the text (menu items and submenu items).
Also noting: right elements (search) aren't vertically aligned in the middle, the go button overlaps the bottom of the bar.
Below 15px minimum font size, the right elements aren't correctly placed and go under the bar.
I don't know if the go below when too small is by design but if it is I feel it looks very odd where it is and the way it's still displayed like a shorter bar, attached or sometimes not attached to the bar above. Also content below doesn't get pushed down.

In current Chrome, using a bigger font size than the default one (which I think is called medium in English) will more or less have the same effects: swirls being too close to the text, right elements overlapping the menu bar. Also the leading in the submenus gets smaller. Using a smaller font size than medium will make search go below the bar, as in FF.

The 'switch' button background is too close to the background of the bigger box it's in, not providing enough contrast imo. I feel the gray on gray doesn't have enough contrast generally speaking actually. It also looks like it's missing a dark border and is right next to the 'work as' drop down and I think a little space in between these would be nice. Same thing for the 'find' button at the bottom of the page.
