Take a look at the following two screenshots. They are our close dialog and our flag dialog.

I have selected an option, and the button is enabled and I can click it to submit my close vote or my flag.

The button looks disabled though. It's greyed out. It looks like I haven't done something right, or like I can't actually close or flag this question.

It used to be orange or blue or something other than this.

close dialog: greyed out close button flag dialog: greyed out flag button

This appears to occur in a number of places with buttons of this style, e.g.:

    \$\begingroup\$ I've noticed the same issue recently on the 'Save Edits' button - I figured maybe it was just bad for those of us with color blindness issues. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Note that this appears to be addressed (based on some quick tests) in the new site theme that is currently in testing. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Confirmed. Looks much better in beta theme. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 25, 2018 at 22:35
  • \$\begingroup\$ I'll tag this as completed once the beta theme leaves beta, then. \$\endgroup\$
