Description

3 years ago
In Bug 896733, I mostly copied over differences between platform specific theme files into the shared files.  They probably aren't all necessary though, and some may be able to be removed.

From https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=896733#c20:

The changes to floating-scrollbars are the least known to me.  Can you make sure you've looked at it on at least windows and osx before/after the patch and see if you can detect any changes?

How about keeping the .breadcrumbs-widget-item:-moz-focusring > .button-box rule and getting rid of the windows preprocessor directive?

Will do. As far as I know, these changes are safe, but I'll do some extra testing to be sure.

That's because there are still some preprocessor directives on top of the file.

Yes, the only other usage of `thumb` is inside XUL sliders. XUL sliders can be used standalone and are used within scrollbars: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/content/widgets/scrollbar.xml#28

So it's actually better to only target `scrollbar thumb`, otherwise standalone XUL sliders are also targeted. It may also be judicious to prefix the previous `slider` rule with `scrollbar`.

See my comment about namespace, otherwise f+ given I did something similar in bug 1183280.
I'm going to rebase on top of your patch, I also cleaned up splitview.css.

Did you gave that a try on mac?
What I'm seeing here is that there is a namespace issue here.
"scrollbar thumb" part of the selector works as expected,
But :root[platform="mac"] doesn't.
The default namespace is xul, so this part is only going to match xul elements.
*|:root[platform="mac"] won't work either. I don't know why, but it looks like it only work with a tag name.
*|*[platform="mac"]:root is going to work.
As well as: *|html[platform=mac], *|window[platform=mac]
I haven't tried with named namespace.
So I don't know about:
  html|:root[platform=mac], xul|:root[platform=mac]
I imagine there is also other combinations that may work...

I'm inclined to leave this file alone since it's loaded in browser.xul and I don't want to change the specificity of these rules.

I'm actually looking around and don't see any reason why the :root selector plus devtools-monospace need to be in this file and can't be in a toolbox-specific file imported by the theme files.  Either way, I'd be happy if we could sort that out in another bug since most of the other stuff in this patch looks ok

I can't actually find a case where this color is intended to be used... Floating scrollbars are only loaded in the toolbox for the dark theme, which is loaded as floating-scrollbars-light.css.

So this rule is overriding the 'light' scrollbar color.. which it wasn't doing before because the specificity matched that rule.  If that's the intent (I don't think it is) then it should move into that file (but I doubt it since it's changing behavior).

There appears to be a usage of floating-scrollbars.css directly from responsive mode which is probably what this meant to target, although I can't figure out how to activate that on Yosemite.

I'd actually be OK with dropping this unless if someone can figure out exactly when it was being used.

Have you tested this to be sure it's not changing anything on osx / linux?

Responsive Design uses the following condition to decide whether to inject floating-scrollbars.css:

  let requiresFloatingScrollbars = !this.mainWindow.matchMedia("(-moz-overlay-scrollbars)").matches;

On Windows and Linux, I believe it is always injected.  On Mac with default OS settings it is not injected.  However, if you change to System Preferences -> General -> Show scroll bars -> Always, then we do inject it on Mac as well.  (Note if you flip this OS setting while Firefox is running, I think you need to open a fresh browser **window** to actually get the injection correctly in Responsive Design.)

Even if I set background-color: orange !important; in floating-scrollbars.css and floating-scrollbars-light.css, flip the system pref, restart the browser and then open a new window I cannot see any floating scrollbars in RDM.  I do see them in the toolbox when the dark theme is on in this case.
ntim, I would like to proceed with preprocessor rules removal sooner than later as it break live reload.
I have a safe patch in bug 1183280 that is simple stupid and just rewrite existing rules with the new [platform=xxx]:root thing. Do you think you could finish up this patch in the next days or may I try to land my patch first?

I'll try to get to it this weekend, but feel free to land your patch first.

Looks like this is effectively only changing the background color for the thumb on mac.  Is this correct, and what we want to happen?

Is it ? That property and it's value are untouched by this patch. Am I missing something ?
