 #6067 changed from text colors as an indicator of activated vs.
 deactivated plugins to using different background colors.


 It is still very hard to see the difference and there has been some
 feedback on the testers list.

 "I don't know if I would call this a bug per-se, but the color contrast
 between the plugin-activated and plugin-deactivated is not noticeable
 enough. It's hard to tell which ones are active and which ones aren't
 without looking at the activate/deactivate link."

 "I still think the ACTIVATED plugins should have the darker grey
 background color, all plugins that aren't activated could be white...
 but, that's just me so.. * shrug *"

 "I actually like the plugin page - clean and crisp. But it's high near
 impossible to see the difference working in bright sunlight. And that
 goes for quite a lot of the soft blues."

 "I do have a small issue concerning how the plugin list looks.

 I am used to the being able to see for certain when a plugin was activated
 -- because it was green.  Now it is really confusing because an activated
 plugin now has a white background -- which is kind of backwards.

 I think the activated plugin should have the color in the background.
 way a person naturally assumes it is activated from a quick glance."
