New awesomebar design: Properly emphasize/highlight search string text on Windows classic theme
The new awesomebar popup design uses `@media not all and (-moz-windows-default-theme)` to detect non-default system themes and uses system text colors for such themes. Emphasized/highlighted text is not colored differently from non-emphasized text due to the small number of system colors, which does not match the design spec. The class Windows theme is a non-default theme, so unfortunately it gets the non-emphasized text even though the hardcoded text colors would look fine on it. We should be able to use `-moz-system-metric(windows-classic)` to detect the classic theme specifically. http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/themes/windows/browser.css?rev=061165ac1ff9#1490
Summary: New awesomebar design: Properly emphasis/highlight search string text on Windows classic theme → New awesomebar design: Properly emphasize/highlight search string text on Windows classic theme
could font-weight: 300 (or 200) help us here?
I didn't intend for this bug to be about design choices or making things more legible, just simply that we should use -moz-system-metric(windows-classic) to detect the classic system theme and apply the normal/hardcoded styles and colors to it. In the CSS, it shouldn't be considered a "non-default" theme.
There's -moz-windows-classic too, which might be better actually. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/CSS/Media_queries#-moz-windows-classic
Classic themes can have completely arbitrary colors. You can't use that as a gatekeeper for hard-coding colors.
