Created attachment 8645617 [details] firefox-status-bar-text-color-bug.png User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 Build ID: 20150807021757 Steps to reproduce: I'm using firefox with a GTK2/3 Theme (I think it actually uses GTK2) and the theme specifies a dark color for the background (black) and a light color for the foreground (white). Actual results: Firefox displays the status bar with the wrong font color, which is black on black. Expected results: Firefox should display the status bar with a white font color (the one used for tooltip text in GTK). I added a screenshot, which shows the behaviour (the mouseover for Bugzilla@Mozilla actuallly shows the way it should look and on the bottom of the screen how it should not look: all black).
Can you still reproduce this issue now that we're using gtk3? This wfm on a dark theme with the current gtk3-based Firefox on ubuntu.
No, I think it is related to the gtk2 version, the status bar is perfectly readable (although not exactly matching with the theme, but I guess that is not of much importance).
OK, marking "works for me" then, and we can reopen if/when this happens again. Thanks for getting back to us so quickly!
