sidebar_dark_background.png

Unlike the built-in sidebars, the webext sidebars show a dark background before the content loads. Since the content of the sidebar is unlikely to be dark, this often sudden change in brightness is very noticeable and distracting. 

chrome://browser/content/webext-panels.xul is using browser.css which applies the dark background color and overrides the #sidebar background color.
