Steps to reproduce:

load a page with form controls in the browser default style

Actual results:

The controls (buttons and selects) have a darker background that look like it's disabled or otherwise not welcoming actions on them.

The buttons are so plain. They don't look like bulged buttons that one can press. They feel like labels (e.g. the labels on a GitHub issue).

There are also less padding to the text. They feel too tight.

Expected results:

They should feel good and natural with above issues.

(The textarea feels just right.)

The Bugbug bot thinks this bug should belong to the 'Core::Widget' component, and is moving the bug to that component. Please revert this change in case you think the bot is wrong.

This is the expected change to the visual appearance of these controls (see https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/5CX2MH6EHFB#/screens/415584863_Form_Widgets). If you'd like to switch back to the native controls as long as they are supported, you can do so by flipping the widget.disable-native-theme-for-content pref in about:config.
