The button sizes on that page are wrong.  The correct button sizes for 
Winstripe are 24x24 and 16x16.  If you want to have different versions 
at each icon size (a subtle :hover effect like the Winstripe buttons, or 
a disabled version), you should use the -moz-image-region trick to 
prevent flicker when switching between the versions.  
http://www.squarefree.com/extensions/thumbs/button-spec.txt and 
thumbs.xpi might help.
