Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to any user’s profile.
  2. Hover over Profile Photo.
  3. You will see a background color on “Edit Profile Picture”.

If you want to see the contrary, click on the white box.


This is an expected behaviour.

The background color is to indicate this link gets focused and you can active it by clicking or pressing Enter Key. It's a refined design for Horizon. And this link gets unfocused if you click on the white box around the text, background color disappears.

This issue does not have any adverse impact on business.

However, if this is considered an important topic for your business needs, submit an enhancement request by following the instructions listed in KBA 2090228 - How to Submit Enhancement Ideas for SAP SuccessFactors Products.
