In bug 1555570 we lowered the dark theme background colors a tiny bit to improve text-to-background contrast in Console.
We can improve the contrast of strings in CodeMirror (affecting console input/output, and Debugger) by making our current blue color a bit lighter:
- color: #6B89FF;
+ color: #709AFF;
It's a subtle change but I'm getting an improved "feel" from it, with the current color the blue seems to vibrate a bit and be lost in the background, and this looks more stable.
On the new
--theme-body-background color, which is
#232327, this improves our contrast ratio:
We also discussed other options with :nchevobbe, including aligning colors of CodeMirror and Reps more, but that would be a big design effort and this is a nice mini-win.
