Just installed XFCE (4.4.1 Centos 5 x86_64) and love its simplicity and speed - nice work.
Just one problem that I can see so far, when I load up firefox or thunderbird and roll the mouse
over the menu items (File, Edit, View etc) the text is obscured by the menuitem highlight. I can
sort of see the text underneath the highlight, but it's white against a white background so it's not
too clear ;D
I guess this is something to do with the XFCE window manager theme and the default colour firefox
wants to use for the menu font??
My firefox 18.104.22.168 is doing just the opposite; I get no highlighting at all, just my cursor over the text with no feedback.
Perhaps trying a different skin/widget set might help? I'm using the default borders with clearlooks. Might be worth a shot.
I just noticed that I get no highlighting of any sort in any application's menu items, not just ff.
Running FF 22.214.171.124 - I'm not sure how to change the widget set. How do I do that?
I can't help feeling that there must be a HUGE number of people having this problem??????
If not, then there must be something wacky going on with our machines.
I don't think I've changed anything to do with the theme, but I will have play with it tomorrow.
