OT, way OT

Greetings all;

I just installed firefox3b3 here, separately from the fedora issue, and wow, 
is it fast & only one hiccup in a carload, but that hiccup is making it 
difficult to use it as a default browser.

The hiccup is:  Anytime you have to enter data in a web sites data requestor 
box, from the keyboard, the text line, which is white, stays white, no 
cursor, nothing, UNTIL you take the focus away from this entry line, and then 
you can see what you typed.

FF- doesn't have this problem, and neither does the official F8 
version the last time I checked.

Does anyone have any idea what I should check out in the about:config (or 
prefs) that might effect that, like a background and text color the same 
$FFFFFF or ??

This new version is MUCH faster, and if I could fix that I'd never go back to 
Camels. :)

Many Thanks for any hints rolled my way.

Cheers, Gene
