Windows has a "High-Contrast" mode that's useful for visually-impared users (A11Y). Unfortunately, Firefox often doesn't look very good in this mode. Sometimes we're outright broken -- lower contrast than normal mode! -- in other case we simply don't look visually refined.

Firefox has historically considered A11Y a very important use case, so we should do better in High-Contrast mode.

Random notes I had jotted down:

Bug 963950 has a couple Australis-specific tidbits, but never really grew into a full-fledged metabug as our ship criteria for Australis was basically just to not make things worse than they already were.

Bug 343205 is a more comprehensive bug, but it's ancient and I don't know how much of it applies any more.

I'd like to see this bug cover a few main thrusts:

* Find and fix obvious visual problems with our theme. Straight-up bugs where contrast is obviously wonky.
* Theme refinement. High-contrast mode should not only have high contrast, but should look _good_.
* Checking in with our A11Y friends to see what else should be considered for inclusion under this umbrella.
And that's everything from my notes.
