Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 BonEcho/2.0b2 (Debian-1.99+2.0b2+dfsg-1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060821 BonEcho/2.0b2 (Debian-1.99+2.0b2+dfsg-1)

The new theme doesn't adapt to the color scheme of the desktop environment in several areas:

- The tabs section (bug #348975 covers this, but not the other areas)
- The navigation buttons when highlighted
- The borders of the widget with the screen rectangle beneath the URL input widget
- The borders around the search engine input widget

See the screenshot I attached.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use GNOME or KDE and select a different desktop color scheme.
2. Start firefox
3. Look at the tab bar and the borders of said widgets
4. Hover over a navigation button and look at it.

Actual Results:  
Colors that do not match desktop color theme and thus look ugly.

Expected Results:  
Colors that match the desktop color theme or transparency through to the colors of the desktop color theme.

Screenshot that illustrates the lack of integration of the theme into the desktop color scheme.

The greys in the navigation symbol I hovered over may just be replaced by a varied color from the color theme I used (darkened or lightened). Wasn't there some freedesktop standard functions that get colors based on existing colors? Well, maybe that was some KDE 4 stuff I read about.

Screenshot is with Debian Etch/Sid/Experimental with KDE 3.5.4, Firefox 2 Beta 2 and its color theme "Pumpkin" (I hope its named like this in english).
1) You're using a build that's three weeks old (and it's packaged by Debian so it could be even older than that).
2) Most of these issues are either fixed already or are in the process of being fixed.

Thank you for your report, but at the speed at which theme bits have been moving on the 1.8 branch, it's fairly futile to report bugs against old builds.
