Let's make this cover large font themes as well, such as where part of the UI becomes hidden because the dialog was sized in pixels.

All 136 bugs found with "high contrast" ? ^^

Since there's a significant regression FF 10...12 breaking the "Use own colors" function with the GNOME High Contrast (Black) Theme(s) by *invisible* buttons, address and text input fields now in FF and on web pages, 

this issue must be handled now.

Is this color hardcoding a common habit between web designers and GTK library coders, or what?

I and most eyesight handicapped suffer from headaches since some office marketing idiots invented this black text on on white (paper) screen **** with the Amiga @$%&#!
