Works fine for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031202. Could you please try a current build?
WFM with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031203. The background/area around the option turns white.
Reporter, what theme are you using?
maybe he meant firebird?
No, he's just using the Classic theme, which needs some fixin'. Modern shows a very different color there.
I don't know why the styles aren't applying, DOM inspector shows them and the correct computed style. BTW this works for me in a Dec 1 MingW build, the background of the selected option should be white (3d highlight), but it doesn't work in my 1.6b Linux nightly in the JS console or HTML Composer.
I updated my MingW build and it still works... perhaps my other build broke.
Odd. All of my builds (nightly, vanilla debug, patched opt, etc) show the problem in the classic theme. I've not done any debugging on it, and I won't be able to until weeks from now.
Mail from glazou re: similar problem in composer: Find toolbarbutton.css and take a look at the first rule at the top, the global rule for toolbarbutton. The only significant difference between classic and modern here is -moz-appearance: toolbarbutton The bug is in the appearance. I forces the background of the toolbarbutton and does not allow any other value, even tagged !important.
This also affects toolbarbuttons in Standalone Composer/Nvu
Over to widgets. The mac version of this CSS file does NOT set moz-appearance unconditionally -- only in some states. I think the Windows and Unix versions should follow suit.
Perhaps the -moz-appearance code could be made to respect the checked state.
It looks as if the code for classic -moz-appearance toolbarbuttons doesn't override the background colour, although I don't know what Windows XP theme support would do as the code doesn't seem to draw XP toolbarbuttons...
wfm Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040313 default (classic) theme. tested JS Console with a warnings only, filter was working, and filter setting displayed as a white background.
