Remove borders and styles on select elements
|Reported by:||mmuro||Owned by:|
The default admin CSS adds borders, background colors, and other styling to <select> elements that actually cause the default browser styling to become unstyled in Firefox on the Mac.
The default OS and browser styles actually handle select boxes pretty well.
I propose that these styles be removed from any global <select> element. If borders need to stay, they should be applied using a more descriptive selector so if I wanted to use default browser styling in a plugin I can.
I tested this in Firefox (Mac), Safari (Mac), Chrome (Mac), Firefox (Win) and IE 8 by looking at various pages with select boxes (Posts, Settings, Quick Edit, Categories). The only difference is that on Firefox (Win) the border is blue instead of gray and I believe if it's desired to keep this, then a targeted class can accomplish the same task without affecting other operating systems.
The patch doesn't apply to the blue theme at this time.
