Alternatively do the same thing on youtube.com video links. Actual results: The popup is black text on black background. Expected results: The popup is black text on white background.
Did you see this issue with the previous version of Firefox, 45? Are you using Gtk3 on your machine? (46 supports Gtk3 now)
OS: Unspecified → Linux
Immediately after updating from firefox 45 to 46 the issue appeared. I use a KDE long term support distribution, so I do not belive that there is anything going on with gtk3.
Can you run mozregression to find a regression range, please. See http://mozilla.github.io/mozregression/ for details. You can try the command "mozregression --good=45" then copy here the final pushlog provided by the console.
For good=45 and good=44 I get the same black text on black background results. I am thinking that mabe there is some configuration option read by the nightly builds as well that is borked. If that is the case, the Firefox package being a distribution packaged update, it has nothing to do with the official Mozilla installer. Though I could still use some help in tracking down the issue. PS I ran mozregression with firefox stable closed as well to ensure that wasn't causing any issues. brancoliticus@brancoliticus-EP41-UD3L:~$ mozregression --good=45 0:00.52 INFO: No 'bad' option specified, using 2016-04-30 0:00.52 INFO: Using date 2015-12-14 for release 45 0:07.23 INFO: Testing good and bad builds to ensure that they are really good and bad... 0:07.24 INFO: Downloading build from: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2015/12/2015-12-14-12-22-42-mozilla-central/firefox-46.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ===== Downloaded 100% ===== 0:34.39 INFO: Running mozilla-central build for 2015-12-14 0:56.61 INFO: Launching /tmp/tmpnhVZL8/firefox/firefox 0:56.64 INFO: application_buildid: 20151214122242 0:56.64 INFO: application_changeset: 06ab805e14b5e6d8a8a99c7846c8fde163a9e5d7 0:56.64 INFO: application_name: Firefox 0:56.65 INFO: application_repository: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central 0:56.65 INFO: application_version: 46.0a1 Was this nightly build good, bad, or broken?

If you download and try the official Linux build from Mozilla, does it work as expected? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
I can reproduce this bug. I'm using 46.0 Elementary OS Freya (based on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit). When the house hover on AdblockPlus, a black dialogue will appear. For an older version (I don't know exactly which one, it's upgraded by `apt-get upgrade`), I ddin't notice this problem.
When the house hover on hyper links on the web page or on links of bookmarks, the popup also has black ground.
Hello reporter, I tried to duplicate this issue on the following FF versions Version 49.0a1 Build ID 2016050503032 Update Channel nightly User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0 Version 45.0a1 Build ID 20151120030227 Update Channel nightly User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 Version 46.0.1 Build ID 20160502172042 Update Channel release User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0 Version 43.0 Build ID 20151210163017 User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0 I observe same behavior on all above versions: White text on black background. Can you please answer the Loic's question? Thanks!
I downloaded the latest version (46.0.1 Linux b4bit). It does have white text on black background. To my surprise, I can see the text clearly this time. The problem is gone permanently. Does the build from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ override some settings? I can't recall what's the real situation before. Maybe it also has hover popup with black background? But what I am sure is that I can't see the text clearly (because of the color?) before.

Hi there, I am using a version from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ and I am having this issue. I am not having this issue in other gtk3 apps, and also not in other firefox-based browsers. I have tried making a new profile in firefox as well (black on black). I have tried mozregression but it seems both versions (2009-01-01 and 2017-02-12) work fine (black on grey). `-b 51` also works fine. I tried safe mode as well (doesn't work). This would indicate to me that there is some important difference between nightly and release, but I don't know where to look next.
