Details

Right now on non-default Windows system themes and Linux, we use system colors for text instead of the hardcoded colors called for by the design spec because those colors may look bad on those platforms/themes.  Because there are a small number of system colors, we don't emphasize/highlight text in each popup entry as called for by the spec.

Stephen said he'd look at this.

Note that bug 1262525 deals specifically with the Windows classic system theme.  I think we should be able to style that with the hardcoded colors and therefore move it out of the "non-default" category.
could font-weight: 300 (or 200) help us here?

It only uses system colors for the title and its emphasis and the highlight though, not the URL/action text.  For those it still uses hardcoded blues.  I asked him about it and he said he thinks we can still hardcode those and they'll look OK on most platforms/themes.  It doesn't specify tag colors either, but they could probably use the text colors.

What's wrong with the native link color that we currently use?
