The problem isn't Firefox, it's your GTK theme. The fix is to pick a different theme.

But this is the standard theme after installation.
How can I change the theme? Do you have any tutorial or reference?

It's a website bug actually. If the designer wants to override system colors, both the foreground and background colours should be changed, not just the background. For example, packages.debian.org has this css:

Code: Select all
input:focus {
   background-color:#FFFFCB;
   
}


If the system colours have dark background with light font, then it is very hard to see anything you type into the search input box.

Not a website bug either.
The default browser theme will use the site designer's css styles and render content accordingly.
No browser theme should ever style page content, forms, etc.
Best to just leave that alone.
A browser should be able to override site styles for font-size & accessibility viewing.

Certainly should. The browser must have a default style. The web designer can then override those defaults, but should take some care doing so.

As a Web developer I disagree.
The browser theme should style its user interface only.
That is what almost all available browser themes do anyway.
The browser theme should have the capability of altering page content, which is already does have, and is limited to resolutions, sizes and colors NOT specified in the document code.

Gone are the days of plain html coded text websites.

A properly coded browser skin or window manager theme should not ever, by default, override the content styles specified in Web documents. To do so directly conflicts with W3C standards. GTK and QT themes which do that are poorly coded by lazy folk.
