Do you mean "vertical alignment?" On the Mac version of Firefox 2 here,
the center of each subsequent button is slightly above the one before
it. Linux and Windows Firefox2 look fine to me. I haven't tested on
SeaMonkey (has my patch been committed to CVS yet)?

Not on an institutional level over here, but we do on a facility level.
We have a central literature database in refbase (which now has
support for COinS) & users are informed of LibX and Zotero. Most of the
visitors to the database who use it at least once a week and have
Mozilla browsers have at least downloaded LibX from us.
Since Zotero can't really integrate with the writing process yet, we
encourage Bibus/JabRef/Endnote. Endnote (free to users at our
University) is the most frequently used (and RIS the most commonly
downloaded format), but LaTeX users do use JabRef & OO.o users (of which
there are few) do use Bibus.
