Windows 7: white dropdown items

white dropdown items

Hey,
recently my dropdowns have started showing the list, but when I over over a selection, it turns white and can not be read. It is like the item has a background and font color of white. I have looked at color configs and I don't see anything that will help. I have also googled the problem and I don't see anything that addresses the issue.
Has anyone seen this before and have any suggestions on fixing it?

You can see it on the attached - between "Java Console" and "downThemAll! Tools" It should be "Error Console" - if you click on it, then it works fine, you just can't read it. The example is from firefox, but it is almost all programs that do this.
Thanks

Hi Paul,

Not sure if this is the same issue you're having, but take a look: Blank Drop Down Menus

sorry, no that does not solve the problem. I have done some more testing and it looks like it is only Mozilla products. I will hunt along that path and see what I can find.

Uninstall and reinstall did not work, BUT I did find the problem.. This was happening when the program was started through rocketdock.. if I start the program from the start menu, then the issue went away.. So it's not windows and it's not the mozilla products, it's rocketdock.

My solution, don't use rocketdock.

Thanks for the help and the suggestions.
