Description

18 years ago
When Mozilla is made inactive/moved to the background, the text in dialogs and
windows needs to dim. Currently, only titlebars for windows and dialogs will
dim. This is super-standard Macintosh behavior. Depending on how previous
versions of Communicator and other internet browsers and applications handle
this, you'll have to decide how far to go with this. At the very least, I'd
expect text in the location field and dialogs to dim when moved into the background.

I don't care so much about the text, but it is important that widgets like
scrollbars, buttons, and controls dim when the window is inactive. The first hit
on an inactive control on Mac OS activates it/makes it the focus, it does not
trigger the control, so if inactive controls are drawn active you can't tell
what clicking a control does - make it the focus or trigger it. This is
especially annoying on large monitors that can have several Mozilla windows, all
of which look active.
