    Default Chromium highlighted text is hidden

    I am having a problem with chromium on 42.2, did not have this problem on 42.1.

    I have five different profiles for chromium that is use --user-data-dir when launching. Three of them show this problem and the other two work as normal. Other users here are also reporting this problem.

    When selecting text the text foreground turns white blending the text in to the background.

    I have not submitted a bug since two of my profiles do not have this problem.

    Here are my chromium commands. chromiunWork and chromiumPrivate do not have the problem all of the others do.

    Code:
    chromium %u --password-store=basic --allow-insecure-localhost --no-proxy-server --user-data-dir=/home/dave/.config/
    chromiumProfiles/chromiumHcilAdmin
    
    chromium %u --password-store=basic --ssl-version-min=tls1.2 --proxy-server="DNS.NAME:8080" --enable-print-preview --user-data-dir=/home/dave/.config/chromiumProfiles/chromiumWork
    
    chromium %u --password-store=basic --ssl-version-min=tls1.2 --proxy-server="DNS.NAME:8080" --user-data-dir=/home/dave/.config/chromiumProfiles/chromiumPrivate
    
    chromium %u --password-store=basic --proxy-server="DNS.NAME:8080" -user-data-dir=/home/dave/.config/chromiumProfiles/chromiumCAC
    
    chromium %u --password-store=basic --ssl-version-min=tls1.2 --proxy-server="DNS.NAME:8080" --user-data-dir=/home/dave/.config/chromiumProfiles/chromiumGeneralInternet --incognito


    I am hoping that someone else can confirm, and maybe help point out the problem before I submit a bug report. Thanks.

    a temporary solution is to use "use classic theme" instead of the GTK theme . . . at least this worked for me.

    That's new. The space bar didn't work in chromium. Anyway, your bug has been rolled into https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=995938. I found I could see the URL bar text when highlighted, but text on the page is still white.I also see it in openSUSE Tumbleweed 20170304. Switching to the classic theme is an immediate work around. In chromium, click the three vertical dots in the top right > Settings > Appearance > Use Classic theme. Mine had been set to Use GTK+ theme. Chromium 56.0.2924.87 (Developer Build) (64-bit)

    I see your comment on the bug report.
    You need to restart chromium after selecting "use classic theme" for it to correct text selection colour. It then seems to use some inbuilt colour for text selection and not the system colour.
