According spec, we're going to introduce a new hover state color (dark gray). At the time I found that the checkbox-check color has defined in common.css which is used widely by entire Firefox browser. Can we accept to have a preference specific style override in

Pushed patch for asking first round review.

Note that I only apply the new hover state highlight for search input (a.k.a textbox[type="search"]) but not for other textbook in preferences panel. I think it would be safe if we apply all textbox in pref panel (it should be in the scope in visual refresh but it's good to go in this bug IMO).

Bug 1360532 - Hover state is not applied on the "Search" field

::: browser/themes/shared/incontentprefs/
(Diff revision 1)
> +.main-content textbox[type="search"]:hover {
> +  border-color: #6a6868;
> +}

This should probably be consistent throughout all textboxes, so I would probably add it here:

::: browser/themes/shared/incontentprefs/
(Diff revision 1)
> +.main-content textbox[type="search"][focused="true"] {
> +  border-color: var(--in-content-border-focus);
> +}

This is already covered by:

Per offline discussion with Helen, this feature will be moved to visual refresh scope. The hover state should apply to all input fields in about:preferences page but not only apply to a single search input field.

I'm going to unassign myself and postpone this work until visual refresh spec is more clear for all hover state.

Apparently, this is a more general change that we want in about:preferences, so clearing review request.
