    Does anyone know how to change the color of selected text in a background window from that light gray color?

    For instance (and this where it bothers me the most): When you perform a FIND on a web page, the little "Find" window appears. If you type your word in the highlited box the "Find" Window will disappear and highlight in your highlight color (the color you can change in system prefs) the word you searched for.

    BUT if you want to seach for all the occurances for the word and you simply hit "next" or "previous," the Safari window stays in the background and the highlited words - the very words you are looking for - are in a window behind your "Find" window and are only highlighted in that dim/dull gray color making them very hard to locate!!

    I spent a lot of time with a dim/dull customer support person and she could not figure out what I was asking....

    Does ANYBODY understand what I am asking?

    Thanks!

    Use cmd-G for Find Next and shift-cmd-G for previous after the first search, and the main window will stay in focus.
