Just discovered that this is due to personas.  Switching back to the default theme
removes the text shadow, but firebug probably doesn't want to be affected by personas
like that.

hey jeff. Thanks for this. You're right, we probably don't want to be affected by
personas. :)

Add text-shadow:none where you don't want to inherit text-shadow (probably the entire

Seems there is an regression.
In Firefox 3.3.8 and firebug 1.6a18 using the persona fractal sad_13

My usual profile looks like:

Creating a new profile and installing only the persona and firebug (first 1.5.5 then 1.6x18):

Thus the issue doesn't seems to be related to any othe extensions I have.
