Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Wait for page to fully load 2.Click into text input field using the mouse 3.Type Actual Results: Text entered into the search field does not display. The cursor moves as letters are entered. Search results obtained by clicking on the GO button reveal that the text was successfully entered, but just not displayed. Expected Results: There should be more contrast between the font and the background, either while typed or after being highlighted. Looking at the source, the class smallfontwhite suggests that the font should be white, but the altenate background color specification looks like it should be off-white. Anyhow, you can read the text in ie 5.0.
Not a problem for me on Linux. Is there some reason text color is inheriting into text inputs?

wfm with win2k build 20030312..
We used to have a bug where negative z-index elements near a text field would cause these symptoms.... it's been fixed for a while. Reporter, do you see the problem with a current 1.3rc build?
Mozilla 1.3 release March 13, 2003 does not exhibit this bug. Thanks and sorry for the out-of-date report.
