FX removed this because it doesn't fit with the dark theme on macOS 10.14.

Thanks. This appears to change the selection colour from blue to "light" in the search boxes and all the fields in the compose window when using the dark theme. That certainly looks better.

BTW, I see no difference using the "light" theme.
This is the patch for ESR60.

Yes on Win10 the colours are almost the same on Light theme.

OK, but then it needs to go to beta, too. Are M-C uplifting their bug?

They don't have it in ESR, Maybe they uplift it to 62 because macOS 10.14 will be released during 62. We then have ESR60 and then it should be removed too.
Well, in the Gloda text box, when using a dark theme, the selection colour is blue now in TB 60 ESR, so that's bad. So why wait if we can fix it before release? BTW, with the dark theme in TB 60 ESR, Gloda and QFB text boxes look differently. Gloda is dark and QFB light. That's a bug, no? Do you want a screenshot?

I see it too on ESR60. I'll fix it and file a bug.
