OK, Border styling also doesnt work. Neither does using a class instead of styles.
I see red; that's what I'm supposed to see, right? works for me with build 2004-12-22-04. What build are you using, by the way?
desired: A textbox whose background color is red actual: a plain vanilla textbox Running Firefox 1.0 release... Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/0.9.1+ StumbleUpon/1.995
Fresh install of firefox latest nightly with no extensions applied... still doesn't work. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041222 Firefox/1.0+
Nathan; if you try the latest Seamonkey build (either [ ] mozilla-win32-installer.exe or mozilla-win32-stub-installer.exe available from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/nightly/latest/), does this then work for you? If so, there's something odd about Firefox (but I doubt it). The Firefox nightly you point to; is that trunk or Aviary branch? A new build (post 1.0) of Firefox should also work, I suspect.
I'm still getting plane white. No red background. This is with the latest seamonkey nightly. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20050111
Also viewed with latest firefox trunk, doesn't work. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20050110 Firefox/1.0+

You need to set -moz-appearance:none to be able to get non-system-appearance styling for widgets. Marking invalid, but please reopen if the problem is still ther with -moz-appearance:none.
