User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0 Build ID: 20170915220136 Steps to reproduce: Open a private tab Type text in the url bar Select text in url bar Actual results: Highlight is purple while text selection handles are blue Expected results: Maybe the highlight colour should match the handles? Not sure if current behaviour is intentional but it looks like a bug.
Interestingly enough this issue predates Photon - in 55 I see the same issue. Given that the selection highlight colour was tweaked for Photon, I guess the highlight colour is intentional and so it's probably rather the selection handles that should change. Carol, what's your opinion on this? Also, a slight scope creep, but should text selection for page contents use purple in private mode, too (at the moment it's all blue)?

Summary: URL text selection colour in private mode is purple → URL text selection highlight colour in private mode doesn't match text selection handles
The previous Firefox is also using orange as the main color for text selection handle; different text highlight for Normal/Private tab. Let's keep the same behavior for now.
