Inactive checkboxes create mousepointer style issues
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Mousing over the inactive checkboxes at http://mwui.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges turns my mousepointer into the hand icon.

This shouldn't happen. It doesn't happen at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges or other wikis.

(Side-detail: If I click the inactive checkbox, it only becomes active at the right/bottom/left border (not top).
If I click it again, it changes back to active all over.)

The main part could probably be fixed with setting cursor appropriately. However, I don't know why Firefox (unless this is code somewhere else) is apparently changing the cursor when the checkbox is disabled. The checked state doesn't change.

The thing about right/bottom/left edge is confirmed and weird.

I tested in Iceweasel (Firefox) 30.0.

The behavior is different (better) in Chromium 35.0.1916.153. There, it doesn't even seem to use the specified pointer (hand) cursor.
