Looks good! I like the consistency between the various elements, nothing seems out of place.
I don’t think they are different? As I understand it, focused buttons have an orange selection border. In the following screenshot; the states are the following:
normal | hoover | active | normal focus
This is the same for other elements;
focussed (the orange is brighter in reality, but the screenshot isn’t able to capture it completely)
Can you elaborate on what the focused state of the pathbar is? For example, what happens if the “folder” element is focused in the next screenshot?
My guess would be that the entire border is orange, instead of only the bottom line, similar to how we do it now, yes? Like in the following screenshot, but then with your updated folder button.
And for the top bar and dock; I like the shadow because it clearly differentiates between top panel and application. Otherwise, the difference between the top bar and application is identical to the difference between application window bar and application menu bar.
