I searched the forums for this topic but didn't find this exact issue. I have tried different themes but they don't seem to affect the admin panels, as opposed to what the visitor sees.
The borders for text boxes and textareas (in Add New Post, for instance) are light yellow and extremely faint. I can see them if I really squint or I can fish around with the mouse until something has been selected.
I am brand new and don't want to pay for the CSS upgrade or delve into anything that elaborate, at least for now. The issue is in both Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 7. I am using Windows XP.
I'd appreciate any advice, thanks.
