I love almost all the black themes, but there is one small problem that I have no idea how to fix. Whenever I use Firefox, all the text I type is a very very light gray color. I have to strain my eyes to see it. So far the only themes that I don't have these problems are Shinobi and Blackberry. I would like to use a diff theme though.

Help? Anyone? Bueller?

As far as I know, it's because Firefox ignores system-wide resources and does it's own thing (which is why it's buttons, text fields, progress bars and contextual menus don't get themed). So there's not a lot you can do about it.

Yeah Firefox chooses which system resources to use, and does a bad job choosing. It seems to use the 'control text' colour for page text, meaning any themes with dark buttons and, therefore, light text are no good with it.

FireFox 1.5 is in beta, does anyone know if this has been fixed? If not maybe we can submit feedback...
