accidentally uploaded wrong screenshot
with some gtk themes (evopop, numix-frost-light), epiphany produces faulty displays of some page elements, like the buttons in the forms of the gnome bugzilla as shown in the screenshot. they are almost invisible until hovered over.

example of faulty behaviour
Thanks for taking the time to report this bug. Strange that one button should render properly, but not the button immediately below it.
I think this might be WebKit #151533, though I am not sure why it is an issue only for some themes and not others. I discovered that problem through code inspection, but I guess it could cause an issue like this in practice.
sorry that wasn't clear, but in the screenshot I was hovering over one of the buttons. I guess the screenshot tool removes the cursor from view.
OK, I think that makes it even more likely to be WebKit #151533. :)
I miiiight have fixed this in WebKit r193896 which has been backported to WebKitGTK+ 2.10.5; when you get 2.10.5, please say here if it's been fixed. Thanks!
I am not quite sure which packages would have to land for your commit to ship on my arch system.
At the moment, I have
Name : webkit2gtk
Version : 2.10.6-1
Name : webkitgtk
Version : 2.4.9-5
Name : webkitgtk2
Version : 2.4.9-5
... and the behaviour hasn't changed.

This one ^^^
The other three are obsolete, insecure packages.
So now we know my patch unfortunately did not fix this bug. Feel free to file a new bug on bugzilla.webkit.org. Since it doesn't happen with the default theme, though, I'm afraid it's not going to be a priority issue; sorry.
well, it's not that big an issue anyway.
about these webkit packages: one is required by gnucash, one by bijiben evolution gufw...
