You might also change the opacity. Adding this to your style worked in FF5 and seemed to work in IE 8 on WinXP in high contrast mode white extra large: opacity: 0.5;

Thanks, Becky! I updated the patch. Changing the opacity looks really good. I did not think opacity would show in high contrast mode. Just learning as I go...

On WebKit?, the disabled DIV (button) is already dimmed and I think adding the opacity makes it too faint for vision impaired people to see. Firefox doesn't auto-dim and needs the opacity. IE also dims, but since IE9 understands opacity, it's also too dim.

Fixes #13637. Add opacity to firefox to make DIV's look disabled in a11y mode.
