Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040506 Firefox/0.8.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040506 Firefox/0.8.0+

In Preferences -> General -> Fonts & Colors, the color choosers should be using
the Mac OS X system Color Picker, not that shoddy non-standard color picker with
only 70 choices.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Go into Preferences -> General -> Fonts & Colors and try to edit a color option.
Actual Results:  
**** color menu pops up

Expected Results:  
nice Mac OS X system Color Picker pops up

This applies to Firefox for Linux as well; please modify the bug report
appropriately. Users of Firefox on all OSes should have a color picker for
precise color selection.

It checked by Windows XP and Mac OS X10.3.3.
OS -> all
Hardware -> all

And this problem is applied also to mozilla.
Probably it will be applied also to thunderbird.

Hardware: Macintosh → All

Well, take your pick here:

bug 42894 - better color picker
bug 56045 - can't select colors other than presets
bug 90667 - rfe: Mac users should have access to native color picker
bug 156989 - RFE: Mac OS X: Use Cocoa color picker...
bug 233460 - [GNOME] use of the gnome colorpicker in the toolkit

none of which really match this bug.

Is this a cross-platform version of bug 156989 + bug 233460? I don't see the point.
