It is actually hard to understand that the ping selector button are clickable.

We could use a triangle to indicate drop-down?

We could move the arrow if the popup is hidden or not ?

Here is some screenshots of the current state.

I think that we perhaps need something totaly different. But cannot think of something that would fit all use case :
* Show the current ping details
* Allow to easily switch between ping
* Open the ping picker popup

Here is a screenshot with the arrow rotating according to the popup state : https://framapic.org/FtkMEjoLObkx/ctYuwzcpMl14.png.
Also you can see the fix of Bug 1388456 (the popup is now next to the button).

Bug 1385351 - Emphasize the ping selector button in about:telemetry

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/166234/#review171760

I think the triangle indicator is definitely an improvement right now (and we could talk with UX through better options in the future).

- - Why not show the dialog right under the button?
  I believe that is common practice for these kind of popup dialogs.
- I don't think this arrow needs to rotate/change here.
- Can we just use a standard unicode character for the downward triangle?

Why not use a unicode character instead, say `▼`?

I thought about it but the html special char is not interpreted and rendered as is. I tried with the unicode character directly it worked but I prefered the css version design for no particular reason. Let's change it to a unicode char. :)

The triangle should be a little bigger (relative to the text size).

We escape non-ASCII characters in our code.
For CSS this is done using `\xxxxxx`:

Because the unicode character can differ according to the current font, we switched back to the css styling.

The cleanup of the "hidden" class is unrelated.
You should move that to a separate commit or bug.

Bug 1385351 - Emphasize the ping selector button in about:telemetry

Dao, is this way to use the button reasonable?
I guess arrow-dropdown-16.svg should probably be shared properly instead of being copied?

nit:

padding: 12px 8px;

about:telemetry is mirrored in RTL builds, so this will need to take that into account. You can use body[dir=rtl] for that.

Hmm, why stretch the image instead of using the native size?

Can you use fill: currentColor;?

Why aren't you using menubutton-dropmarker.svg as discussed on IRC?

::dao,

A screenshot with menubutton-dropmaker.svg : https://framapic.org/a8o8tVC49Uia/bXUkscdzx3EL.png (it is not centered and seems blured)
A screenshot without the background resize : https://framapic.org/gYpNostvwpcN/yzeHL2yFpAhL.png
A screenshot of the actual commit : https://framapic.org/5j4xNnXWyIRZ/XOn5iIKB3Fru.png

Do you think I should remove the resize or use the menubutton-dropmaker ?

You shouldn't have to resize and we shouldn't add another dropmarker image. What we could do is:

- move arrow-dropdown-16.svg and arrow-dropdown-12.svg to toolkit
- update browser/ to use these icons from toolkit: http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/search?q=arrow-dropdown-...svg&case=false&regexp=true&path=css
- update toolkit/themes/shared/popupnotification.inc.css to use arrow-dropdown-16.svg
- remove menubutton-dropmarker.svg

this is simpler:

background-position-x: left 8px;
