Thanks for the report and for the patch, @adhitya03.

The styles for the select dropdown are based on our button styles. Since the buttons don't use opacity for the disabled state, I'd prefer we don't use it here either. I'm attaching 48129.2.diff, which uses the same disabled styles we use for buttons in buttons.css (plus the addition of a lighter gray variant of the arrow SVG).

Hi @MarcosAlexandre thanks for the patch.

I think the patch should effect to all disabled state of select, instead of only for one part. I'd prefer @kjellr 's patch.

Reproduce from @kjellr 's patch, delete !important property. All style work fine without that.

Sounds good to me. We do use !important styles for these in buttons.css, but I'm much happier not using them if we can help it.

48129.4.diff should be good to go. Thanks for the help, everyone!
