Description Florian Quèze [:florian] [:flo] 2012-03-26 06:36:56 PDT
Warning: Unknown pseudo-class or pseudo-element 'placeholder'.  Ruleset ignored due to bad selector.
Source File: chrome://messenger/skin/newmailaccount/accountProvisioner.css
Line: 224

Line 224 is:
#search input[type="text"]:placeholder {

The same code exists in all 3 themes:

I think ":placeholder" just needs to be replaced with ":-moz-placeholder", see

Aceman, not sure if you are looking for more easy cleanup bugs, but if my analysis in comment 0 is right and it isn't filed anywhere else yet with a patch waiting for review, this seems easy; so CC'ing you just in case :-).
Comment 2 Florian Quèze [:florian] [:flo] 2012-03-26 06:47:42 PDT
Possibly caused by bug 700536 and related to bug 709945.
Comment 3 :aceman 2012-03-26 06:59:41 PDT
it is in 4 files:^[^\0]*%24&hitlimit=&tree=comm-central

No other occurences in comm-central.
I couldn't find a dupe. I'll do it.
I just usually don't care much for new experimental modules :)

This makes the change and the warning does not happen. But I can't see any visual change.

Comparison of having -moz-placeholder, or no rule at all...

Hm.  So I'm reconsidering my r+ on the patch for this.

While the code looks good, I'm not sure the rule actually gives us anything that we want.  The difference between having -moz-placeholder vs. just tearing that rule out seem negligible.  See attached.
Comment 9 Mike Conley (:mconley) 2012-03-27 11:05:17 PDT
I'm going to take off checkin-needed for now until we resolve whether or not we even need the rule.

bwinton: do we even need this rule?  If we were fine with the way Account Provisioner already was, we might as well excise it, since I don't think it's adding much.

Taking off my r+ until we determine whether or not we even need the rule.
Comment 11 :aceman 2012-03-27 11:20:59 PDT
That is what I said in comment 4 (no visual change) :)

Yeah, I think we can safely get rid of that rule, since it doesn't really add anything.

Looks good, so I'll say ui-r=me, and r=me while I'm here.
