Steps to reproduce:

1/ Try to install the add-on attached to this bug (which seems to be a corrupt funambol add-on for TB17 from

Actual results:

Nothing. After looking at it a little bit more, I have seen the error message at the top of the TB windows (attached to the bug report too)

Expected results:

Text color should be in black in order to improve its readability (any other suggestion would be accepted except this white text on a clear background).

Is this a theme issue?
Or addon manager?
Comment 3 Richard Marti (:Paenglab) 2013-01-23 12:09:40 PST
Because Firefox uses now the arrow-popups it's a theme issue.

I'll take it.

I removed the special styling for value="addon-install-failed" and let the original styling of notification.css.

I've added inverted close icons to have a better contrast.

The red seems a little bright.  I suggest we add something like:

notification[value="addon-install-failed"] {
  background-image: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/stripes-error.png"),
                    linear-gradient(rgba(255, 0, 0, 0), rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.5));
  background-repeat: repeat-x;

instead.  (Uh, feel free to play around with the colours there…)

Aside from that, ui-r=me!

patch v2

The red background color was the original from notification.css. This patch lightens the red a little bit.
