 From a Usability-Perspective Yellow is not a good choice for Folder- 
Items. Yellow is a Warning-Color and should be used accordingly.

And I know that Mozilla uses Yellow as Default and is not M$, but  
this doesn't relative my argumen. There is not a good reason to do  
something, because someone does it too. Blindly following some people  
is not best practice.
