worksforme on linux.... sounds like more trouble with the native theming on windows.
yeah.. We only turn off theming for textboxes and buttons. Maybe we should expand it to selects, listboxes, checkboxes and radio buttons?

It is very strange. Just checked in Mozila 1.3 RC (downloaded it using ASA's link) but this bug is still here. It is not even among critical for 1.3. Obviously it will render many Web sites unusable!
I can't see that this will affect many sites - the dropdown works ok. the problem is just that it's styled to have white text and a transparent background. Mozilla does the white text, but the "transparent" background shows white as well, rather than black like the page body - so you have white on white. are there many major sites that use CSS on form controls? this certainly doesn't deserve "blocker" severity. if you think it should block 1.3, you're supposed to set the "blocking1.3" flag to the "?" setting.
Severity: blocker → normal
I do not know haw many sites have this problem (how to count them?) but I think one is enough to show the problem. There is another bug 95287(http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95287) which has different problem with the dropdown.
So does anyone actually own this bloody native theming mess? If so, could that individual take this bug? ;)
WFM, mozilla1.3 2003030905 build on WindowsME. Vladimir: do you have a clean build (into a new empty \mozilla.org directory)?
forgot to mention in previous comment, although I thought it was implied, I see this bug 1.3beta on win2k, and whatever nightly I was using when I made the previous comment (20030304 I think). reassigning to a component... no clue about who the owner should be.

this bug is tim's. however, it isn't critical so he'll get to it on his own schedule. if someone cares about the problem they are welcome to offer to help fix it, people on #mozilla will provide pointers to such a person.

Comment #7 Jacek, 1. Yes, I had a clean build. I always delete the old mozilla.org directory. 2. The latest buid of 1.3 Mozilla for Windows I found was 2003021008. 3. The problem exists for NT 4.0 SP 6a and W2000 SP 3.
