Checkboxes in browser chrome are very hard to see
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
Checkboxes in browser chrome are very hard to see.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(up to date FC5 system)
I think this only applies to GTK builds of firefox, but I'm not sure.
I've tried a few different colour schemes but checkboxes such as the "Use my
choice for all cookies from this site" one on the cookie dialog are checked in a
very light colour (the Selected Text colour from my chosen KDE colour scheme)
that doesn't stand out against the background.
The check should be made bolder or otherwise more visible, or should not use the
selected text colour.
This could be due to some config setup on my system, rather than a general
problem, but it seems to be a problem on any themes I use.
I currently have the Keramik theme and KDE Default colour scheme, which results
in very light blue checks on a white background.
See attached image, where the checkbox is checked, but very hard to see at a glance.

another example of hard to see checks
Here is another example, this time from the WebDevelopers Toolbar extension
(which uses the same themes) and it is very hard to make out which boxes are
ticked because of the very light blue.
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
reproduced with an up-to-date FC6
$ rpm -q firefox
both screenshots are still valid, I can provide new ones if desired but there's
not a lot of point, the colours are the same
what other info do you need? I don't know if this is a firefox, GTK, KDE or
soemthing else issue.

it does seem to be a GTK thing, this is from the gtk-demo application provided
by gtk2-2.10.13-1.fc6 - so not specific to firefox
Running KDE, with Keramic theme. I have no idea what gtk theme.
If I uncheck the "apply colors to non-KDE applications" box in Control Centre,
under Appearances & Themes -> Colours then the gtk widgets are much more
visible, so it seems to be an interaction between Qt and gtk ... ?
Probably just using a poor gtk theme. Sending to gtk to help figure this out,
but my guess is the answer is choose a different theme.
Yeah, choose a different theme, please
I didn't pick this one in the first place, but will change it.
