Feedback on changes to merge button

Issue #16868 resolved
Julia Lockin created an issue

Why did @Bitbucket change their merge PR button to a yellow color? Gives the user the impression they're merging conflicts.

Hey @Atlassian have you changed the normal "Merge" button to a "warning-like orange"? If so... WHY?

@Bitbucket just a question, the merge button on cloud version is now Yellow rather than the standard Call-to-action colour of navy blue. Are there any docs as to why? #bitbucketcloud #ux #ui

    Seems this colour change applies to more than just the "Merge" button


    Did somebody mess up the CSS for primary buttons?

    Made me do a double take and confirm it was not trying to tell me about conflicts, here I thought it was a handy UI feedback but instead a UX confusion.

    The amount of time wasted by devs globally will be interesting to consider 🤔

    In case this isn't clear, we're talking about the final "Merge" button that appears on the modal window / dialog that shows up when you want to finalise the PR.


    This seems to be due to some global style change that effects dialog buttons.

    /* From adg3.css */
    body.adg3 .aui-dialog .dialog-button-panel button.button-panel-button {
        color: #091E42;
        background: #F4F5F7;
        border: none;
        box-sizing: border-box;
        margin-right: 4px;
        height: 32px;
        min-width: 24px;
        border-radius: 3px;
        text-shadow: none;
        padding: 4px 10px;
        background: #0052CC; /* <-- Blue */
        color: #FFF;
        background: #DE350B; /* <-- Red */
        color: #172B4D;
        background: #FFAB00; /* <-- Orange */
        transition: background .1s ease-out,box-shadow .15s cubic-bezier(.47,.03,.49,1.38);
        font-weight: 400;
        -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
        font-family: -apple-system,BlinkMacSystemFont,"Segoe UI",Roboto,Oxygen,Ubuntu,"Fira Sans","Droid Sans","Helvetica Neue",sans-serif;
        margin-right: 10px

    Really looks like something has gone wrong with all those overridden background directives.

    Please fix / revert it.

    Yea, the color change is surprising every time I want to merge. Feels like I'm setting off a bomb.

    I'm currently using the Stylebot Chrome extension with the below to fix this

    body.adg3 .aui-dialog .dialog-button-panel button.button-panel-button {
        background-color: #0052CC;
        color: #fff;
    body.adg3 .aui-dialog .dialog-button-panel button.button-panel-button:active {
        background-color: #0747A6;
    body.adg3 .aui-dialog .dialog-button-panel button.button-panel-button:hover {
        background-color: #0065FF;
