When some text is not found, the "Search for" field has the red rectangle drawn BEHIND the text box, and the text is becoming white on white, effectively unreadable.

  • This is a bug of the Adwaita theme. It uses the pixbuf engine and defines a background image on the entry, which isn't overridden when we try to override the background of the widget -- but our override of the foreground still takes effect, resulting in white on white.

    We cannot do anything about this unless we stop changing the widget's color; but it's definitely not our fault if the theme engine doesn't follow the background override.
