Download Manager should use the same gradient background color as the Add-ons Manager


(Toolkit :: Downloads API, defect)

Not set

I think that will look more polished.
The blue selection color should be somewhat lighter below.
I'm fairly certain that this would require us to have a fixed height download object, which we didn't really want to do...
You sure about that? I've got addons with really long descriptions which are taller than other ones in the Addons Manager.
I've been known to be wrong.  It's still worth investigating! :)
It uses this png file to add whiteness on top of the "highlight" color.. but I'm not quite sure how it gets it to fade so quickly.. the image is 300px tall and only starts fading at about 100px.. but the addons richlist item isn't that tall... ???
I'm inclined to WONTFIX this - right now the richlistbox uses system colors (for example, on mac you can change the selection color to whatever you want), and if we use an image to make a gradient, we lose that.
Poor OS integration in the add-ons manager doesn't mean I'll take it in the downloads manager ;)

This adds a gradient behind each download item, but you only really see it for the selected one even though the lightblue banded are also faded.

Also, I'm hovering over the cancel button so the paused button is relatively faded for bug 391928.

For comparison.. open in multiple tabs and switch between them.
Same thing as earlier but on windows. Left side has cancel button hovered.

Just incase my settings are strange for png..

I'm not sure if this is right.. using extension's image?
So how does this look if you change the system color for selection on OS X?
On OS X we have a forced color..

  background-color: #EDF3FE;
Sorry - I thought this was for selected downloads.
Oh oops, yeah it is for the selected. Where do you change that?
System Preferences -> Appearance -> Highlight Color
Also, your patched does things for non-selected downloads.

Color by domain ?! filetype?! ;) ;) These all have the fading background and use a color based on the selection color.

That affects selected text.

Not just text.

I think we are having a miscommunication issue :p
Does changing the "Highlight Color" do anything other than change the highlight text color... outside of Firefox? The option even says "For selected text". Type in something into the spotlight for system preferences and select text and see the changed highlight color.

We don't lose the selection color anyway by adding in the image. The image is a background gradient that fades in, but it's mostly transparent, so you see through to the selection color.

Just take a look at the chrome file

Nothing to do with text for me - it's the selected richlistitem.
but anyway, if this gets ui-r, I'll take it.

This kind of highlighting isn't standard for OSX.  Do we do this in the add-ons manager on OSX?

It looks good on windows. Just not on OSX.

Both winstripe and gnomestripe have the styling, so only those and not os x.
