The Sandstone era is over. It should be replaced with a new theme at some point in the near future. Mozilla's current developing style guides are below:

Actually there are no web app guidelines here, and basically Bugzilla doesn't necessarily have to follow Mozilla guides. I think it's time to develop a neutral, business-app-like clean theme that can be used by non-BMO instances. (And I'm happy to work on it.)
It should also be mentioned that, during SF All Hands, someone asked me to create a Night Mode sub theme like Twitter or feedly so they can work comfortably at night.
As a reference, Pontoon uses an original dark theme for the entire project.
Note that there is currently *no* theme on BMO; all css files exist under skins/standard. We can change those first.

This is a Bugzilla 6 blocker, actually.

Severity: normal → blocker

We can soon use the prefers-color-scheme media query for our new dark mode.
