    Firefox forcing text input color

    I use a dark theme with light text and some pages have white/light text input boxes where the text is white/light as well (making it invisible). I am a horrible typist, so it's important for me to see what I'm typing.

    I know I fixed this issue before by making a userContent.css (or was it userChrome.css?) file with a few lines changed, but I can't find the code snippet I used (and css is not my thing).

    Any ideas?
    What would happen if your hard disk died right now?

    Try
    INPUT, TEXTAREA {color: black !important; background: #aaaaaa !important; }
    in userContent.css

    I changed it to:
    Code:
    INPUT, TEXTAREA {color: white !important; background: black !important; }
    It seems to be working so far. Thanks.
    (Will mark solved after more testing).

    No problem, dark themes can produce a variety of surprises!
