Can't read white font on white background!

New to this, and the plugin for Gmail in Chrome, but once installed the Tasks List is White, with white text. A little hard to read.... Can this be changed by the user? Thank you in advance.

I've added this to our list to investigate.

For what it's worth, here are the themes that currently don't work:
* Not visible: New Blue, Night Shade, Shiny, Beach, Mountains, Pebbles, Summer Ocean, Phantasea, Ninja, Orcas Island, High Score, Turf
* Technically visible but only minimal contrast: Sunset, High Contrast Black, Desk, Planets

All other themes should work correctly.

Until RTM sorts out the issue and if you use Firefox, you can place the following in your userContent.css file, then choose whatever color you want. You can also install the Stylish add-on for Firefox or chrome and use the same rule.

@-moz-document domain("mail.google.com") {

.vr { color: #333; }

Thanks mwilson for your advice, I even found a dedicated style on stylish that works just fine and installs with a click : http://userstyles.org/styles/7547

I found an alternative:
You can enable adding widget by url in the lab and add widget for iGoogle. If it looks too narrow for you it`s possible to customize it`s width in "Minimalist for Gmail" extention.

+1 for "please fix this."

Also, in general, I like a dark background screen with light text. If there was a way to set the background of the RTM pane to be dark when the other backgrounds are dark (thus also making light text legible), this would be best for me.

Thanks for an excellent GTD service. I use it every day, at home and at work. At home, my wife and I both have pro accounts; as soon as I can I'll get the boss to pay for a pro account at work too!

I also use a dark background (Night Shade). Don't like to use a light theme, I get a sunburn from my screen ;-)
