This is a follow-up to #48598.

Are we sure that completely removing the custom button style when not hovering over a button is a good fix for this? In 5.3.1, all buttons have a blue outline, no matter if you are in :hover, :active or in default status.

In the screenshots below you can see the different :hover actions.

Default Colour Scheme

Midnight Colour Scheme

Ocean Colour Scheme, non-hover

Ocean Colour Scheme, hover

I'm all for a11y and this is a vast improvement over how it was, but it seems the buttons lost a bit of flair with this update. The buttons look incredibly boring and are not as in-your-face as they were before.

  • Focuses accessibility removed

This ticket was discussed during today's accessibility bug-scrub. @studiotwee thanks for your report. To our (a11y team) understanding this relates only to the various "Add new" buttons, correct?

The "Add new" use different CSS from the default buttons and they went through some recent CSS changes. Regardless, it appears this is more a design / UI issue rather than an accessibility one. Adjusting the ticket properties accordingly.
