Does that happen all the time or only on specific pages?

On some page that have a background image with a white background the selection color may not be very noticeable, only if you look good you can see a slight change in the color of the selected text and no background color change.

If that didn't apply then start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
