Hi there. I'm running 64-bit, Firefox 3.6.16, Linux 2.6.35, Fedora 14, and KDE. I have a custom dark theme in KDE. I setup a custom userContent.css:

[~/.mozilla/firefox/...efault/chrome]$ cat userContent.css textarea, input, select {

       color: #000000 !important;
       background-color: #ffffff !important;

}

This works on some sites, but on other sites, e.g. amazon.com search box and other important sites, I still see dark input boxes with dark text. When I look at the input box in Firebug:

userContent.css textarea, input, select {

   background-color: #FFFFFF !important;
   color: #000000 !important;

}

I'm guessing this is because of my KDE theme. However, I have "Use system colors" unchecked in my Colors preferences. Is there some about:config I have to change?

You are awesome. That worked! Thanks.

You're welcome.

You need to use that to override CSS code from build-in Firefox and OS widgets (native styles) and do all the styling yourself.
