Background of Facebook comment shows white letters on white backgroundt


I cant find the reason why the comment-box in facebook shows a white box and when I write into it, the letters apperar white. After sending this, it is readable again.

I tested some different firefox designs, but they change only the frame.
Also tested some linux desktop styles, but the problem remains the same.

Does anyone have a good idea how to solve this thing?

somthing is wrong with your configuration. I use lubuntu 13.10, fresh install with openbox and everything facebook works fine.

Maybe you have wrong font settings. Try also installing alternative desktop environment.

It still is white on white. After writing in this box I can mark it, then it is visible...

I tested Midori and Opera. Everywhere the same.

All the other writable windows are ok.
