The icon classes used for switches on the plugin page are inverted and it is quite confusing for the newcomers.
I talk about those switches

6.10.2 Backoffice interface inconsistency

in /conf/_icons.php it should be like this (lines 610 to 623)

		case 'activate': return array(
			'alt'  => /* TRANS: Short for "Activate(d)" */ T_('Act.'),
			'legend' => T_('Activate'),
			'size' => array( 16, 16 ),
			'xy' => array( 64, 96 ),
			'fa' => 'toggle-off'
		);
		case 'deactivate': return array(
			'alt'  => /* TRANS: Short for "Deactivate(d)" */ T_('Deact.'),
			'legend' => T_('Deactivate'),
			'size' => array( 16, 16 ),
			'xy' => array( 80, 96 ),
			'fa' => 'toggle-on'
		);

and it will look like

Yes it does seem a bit confusing :)

Dark and light, maybe red and greed ? but then there is the green button to the left ???

The icons now show the current state. Mind you, we had them the other way round at some point, and some other users told us it was confusing...

Looks good to me, but be better in green :)

There's the green 'traffic light' to the left which is clickable and shows the status, so why bother with a switch to the right?

because switch is to enable/disable, and traffic light is to show status? :)

What I mean is that when clicking on the the traffic light it effects the switch and enables and disables the plugin also, so why another switch? I don't get it.

This is not only visually backwards from what an user would expect, but it's the opposite of what's being used on the collection "Widget" screen. So b2evolution isn't even being consistent with itself.
