What native menu highlighting should look like

I'm running Firefox 5 on Linux (Debian squeeze, up to date with security patches, default Gnome desktop).  Note that it's Firefox here, not Iceweasel.  The default menu highlighting seems to be white-on-light-grey which is barely readable.  Examples in my Mozillazine thread here:

This could do with being fixed.  I'm not sure but I think it's the -moz-appearance that's causing the incorrect highlighting; I seem to be unable to override this background colour highlight in CSS.
