  • I don’t see this as a bug. Placeholders should not use a different font size than the text they replace. We allow to control the color in cases when the author sets a background on the text input which makes the default placeholder color unsuitable. Resolving as By Design for now, but the issue is tracked in the database if we ever need to come back to this.
