Privacy button in page footer always uses hover/active text color, regardless of if it is active or not

Reproduction Steps
Device Info:
User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:98.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/98.0
Platform Type: PC
Device Type: Computer

Expected Behavior
I expect the “Privacy” button in the page footer to remain greyed out until I hover over it with my mouse, like the other buttons in the footer.

Dark theme:

Light theme:

Actual Behavior
The “Privacy” button is always colored as if it is active, regardless of if it is being hovered over or not. This makes it look slightly out of place next to the other buttons in the footer.

Not a real workaround, but it is temporarily fixable by removing all references to the privacy link in this CSS script via inspect element on the site page. Delete lines 87-90 and 101-104, as well as lines 33-35 (“fixes” the issue for the develop page and other legacy pages). This is the method I used for the expected behavior examples shown above. Doing this makes the privacy button behave like the other buttons in the footer, only changing to the more pronounced color when hovered over or activated.

Lines 87-90:

Lines 101-104:

This IS a bug, right? Surely there is no specific reason why the privacy button is always colored as if it is active? Just want to make sure the time I spent making a report for this very inconsequential design inconsistency I noticed was not completely for naught.

Issue Area: Roblox Website

Currently it is still happening

Hello, yes this issue is still occurring. I’ve edited the post to include new images of the CSS script, and the code remains unchanged.

Ok, I’ll look for someone at Roblox to take a look
