I recently switched to a dark Gnome2 theme and realized, that firefox did use that colors too. But also firefox used these colors for the input forms on some websites. I found out how to partially fix this.
These strangely colored input field will be there when the website did not define any other colors to these elements.
There is a way to make these fields white again with the following instructions:
You need to create or append this file
with this content:
* Default colors for HTML-Forms when using dark GTK Themes.
* @author Julius Beckmann firstname.lastname@example.org
-moz-appearance: none !important;
It will give Firefox default values to use when a website does not set any colors for form inputs.
You need to restart Firefox to activate these settings.
You can test it here: Test-Forms
But the check-box input fields are still black. I think because Firefox does not render these Elements on its own, but let GTK do it. I could not find any method to reset these to normal again.
