See screenshot.
We should match it to the latest spec as well.
Linux has its own style because some people without X compositor aren't able to show transparent color[1], and the style need to be compatible with it.
We may need to make sure if this is still the case and proceed. If it's still the case we need to come out a fallback style.

Latest spec:

Note the fill color is 30% opacity which hasn't be updated into spec yet.

Workaround for Linux

Michael can you take a look on this Linux-specific style?

The reason is for compatibility as I commented above. In a machine without X compositor they'd just see the border without background color.

It might be good to have a screenshot of what this looks like on the back button, too.

Linux without X Compositor

That will work. Will we only show this to those linux users who can't have transparent colors?

From Firefox's side, it's unable to detect if they have X compositor or not. So for users on Linux who do have transparent color, they'll get transparent color + thick border, like another attachment I set ui-review to you. 
It's a little bit ugly than other OSes but I think we should try to keep the compatibility.
