User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131127030201




Expected results:

The "→" and "+" elements of semi-transparent (round) side buttons of Metro UI are not semi-transparent, so that text under them is unreadable. This forces into scrolling, which is not always desirable.

Screenshot

This screenshot shows that arrow of the "back" button disallows reading the menu entries' captions below it. If it was as transparent as the white border of the button, text would remain visible.

Apparently arrows *are* semi-transporent (at least as of latest nightly), though making them more transparent wouldn't hurt. IMHO twice as transparent would be perfect.
