Description Richard Marti (:Paenglab) 2013-04-15 09:25:36 PDT
This are only some slight adjustments and removes of now doubled code after the landing of bug 814041 and bug 853431.

proposed fix

This patch removes the styles which are now in toolkit. I added code to make both menulists the same height. One has icons in it, the other not and we are using -moz-appearance: none to make them look like the toolbar-buttons. This makes them not the same height without my changes.

On #locationFolders the icon was to near to the text, I added 1px of space.

On #viewPickerLabel the menus had a big indentation. With this patch the menus are aligned with the menuitems.

Hey Richard,

I'm not likely to be near my Windows machine this weekend. Could you please post before and after pictures with this patch so I can ui-r?

At making the comparison I saw a need to remove also a margin of 2px on #viewPickerPopup > menu > .menu-text to align the menu correctly with the menuitems.

Hm...not sure if the separators are supposed to start 1/4 of the way across the popup. Can that be corrected here too? Or is this that something better suited to a follow-up?
Comment 6 Richard Marti (:Paenglab) 2013-05-18 10:13:24 PDT
I tried this. The only possibility is -moz-appearance: none, but this draws then a black separator. It wouldn't be easy to find the correct color for the native separator.

I could try it in a follow-up bug.

I'd say the indented menuitems are less desirable than the partially completed separators, so let's go with this patch for now.

But please file a follow-up bug to do something about those separators, if you haven't already.

Did you make the "View" dropdown and the preceding folder picker the same height? It looks like that is also needed on other platforms (at least I see it on Win XP).
Comment 11 Richard Marti (:Paenglab) 2013-05-29 03:32:33 PDT
Yes. Please can you file a bug for this under XP? Then the issue you wrote in bug 876222 can also be fixed there.
