User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Build ID: 20120312181643

Steps to reproduce:

It would be great if the default text color would be bright pink (I suggest #f442e1) instead of black, which seems arbitrary. This would also be a nice complement to #376997.


Actual results:

Text is rendered in a black color.


Expected results:

Text should be redered bright pink.

I was able to implement this as a restartless addon for anyone to download and install: https://builder.addons.mozilla.org/addon/1045994/latest/

I'd recommend anyone looking for this bug to be fixed to use it if this bug languishes for a long time with no work being done to fix it.

It is a joke bug report. I can not recall the exact circumstances but it should be safe to close.
