Firefox progress bar issue

ToddAndMargo-2
Hi All,

Mozilla says this is Xfce's problem.  They are just picking up
the colors from the theme

RFE: make the progress bar a different color than the background color
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1464529

Here are some picture of the issue:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8980791
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8981970

Are they correct?  If so, how to I fix it?

Many thanks,
-T

That's not what they are actually saying. Rather it's an issue of the
theme in connection with firefox and I think this is supposed to be
fixable in firefox, which is also indicated by the status of the bug.

This is an issue between the gtk theme and FF, xfce has nothing to do
with it (first screenshot shows Adwaita, second one Ubuntu's theme,
whatever it's called, and neither are xfce).

And the same issues is also visible with GNOME Shell btw.

Cheers
Olivier

Perhaps a Linux distro issue!
Ubuntu flavour releases for example stay with major release oft software
provided by the official repositories during the Ubuntu flavour
release cycle. Firefox is an exception, it is updated to other major
releases during an Ubuntu flavour release cycle. GTK is very picky
regarding themes, since GTK could become incompatible even with dot
releases of GTK libraries (completely against common sense how to
handle soname dot releases) and original GTK themes, such as Adwaita,
let alone third party themes. Maybe there's a mismatch between the
Adwaita release provided and the release of Firefox provided by your
distro. OTOH your distro should compile Firefox against GTK provided by
the official repositories, but you never know, if that is enough.
Consider to migrate to QupZilla/Falkon. It has got the look and feel of
Firefox, but is based upon Qt.

Nice try to go off topic, but no, it's not a distro issue. I'm talking
about upstream code here.

Cheers,
Olivier
