Affected versions

  • latest Nightly 70.0a1

Affected platforms

  • Windows 10 x64


  • have High Contrast mode applied on Windows
  • have at least one breached site saved in the profile-- instructions on how to do this can be found here

Steps to reproduce

  1. Access about:logins
  2. Inspect the breach warning icon and the "X" button from breach notification banner.

Expected result

  • The breach warning and the "X" button are correctly displayed.

Actual result

  • The breach warning and the "X" button are not displayed.

Regression range

  • Not a regression, I was able to reproduce it on older builds e.g. 70.0a1 (20190807215212) as well; one of the first builds with this feature implemented.

Additional notes

  • It seems that other banners that are having a "X" button are affected by this, so it could be a more general issue.

ntim thought he heard that platform was going to fix images to show in HC mode so maybe we don't need to do anything specific to about:logins now?

The backplate feature will not be complete in time for this. I think removing the background images is the way to go.

OK. Since this is P3 I assume that doesn't have to be done in 70. (Though I would still take a patch in early beta.)

Bug 1576047 removed the background-image and replaced it with an <img>. This bug should be fixed once bug 1576047 is fixed.

Now that bug 1576047 has landed, can you please test this again?

Now that bug 1576047 has landed, can you please test this again?

Unfortunately, it is still reproducible on latest Nightly 71, the breach warning and the "X" button doesn't show up.

Attached image breach-indicator.png

The breach indicator in the logins list is now visible but barely and certainly not visible enough being a dark red on a black background. The close x button on the breach notification banner is still completely invisible.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

The accessibility team considers this a P1 defect because it substantially breaks the breach notification feature for low vision users.

Tracking for 70 release, hoping we can get a fix in for beta 11 or 12 next week.
