Please ask just one question at a time. But, for starters, your problem with text boxes is possibly related to some theme you've installed. –  user25656 Apr 17 '13 at 11:33

If you are using firefox and want a quick way to switch text colours, take a look at the colortoggle firefox extension. Otherwise, if your system colours are acting strange, try to go back to the default theme (system settings -> appearance). –  soulsource Apr 17 '13 at 12:25
