Mac OS X – force native web form controls

Description:

[NOTE: THIS ONLY WORKS AS INTENDED WITH FIREFOX 3 UNDER MAC OS X!]

Firefox 3 has introduced the use of native form controls for web pages under Mac OS X. By default, these replace the decidedly unnatural look of the artifically-rendered form controls used by previous versions of Firefox. Yay!

However, if a web page specifies sufficient CSS styling for its form controls, Firefox will unfortunately revert to the ugly non-native versions. Boo!

Thankfully, it’s possible to override this, and force Firefox to always use the native OS X form controls. Yay again!


PROS:
• Native OS X form controls (obviously)
• Native focus indicator for form controls – the superior OS X focus indicators are lost the moment the form controls go non-native, so this is another reason to keep the form controls native
• Provides user interface consistency for those of us who are partially color-blind, or otherwise prefer our form controls to be unambiguous and consistent

CONS:
• So
