8520 Typed Text Not Visible in Browser With Particular Theme

I have started to create themes for Blackberry phones.  I have gotten some tech support questions mainly from users of the 8520 that in the Browser (and such things as Facebook) the text that they type is not visible (most likely because it is white).  For the life of me I can not figure out what is going on.  It does not seem to be a problem for other phone models.  Although, come to think of it I did have someone with an 8350i have the same problem.  These two phones share the same OS (4.6.1).  My menu text is grey (normal) and white (highlight), the list text is white on a black background and the global application text is bright blue.  I compiled the theme in Plazmic 4.7 for the 8350i only (I did not compile a separate set of cods for the 8520 as they have the same screen size and OS).  Any help or inkling of an idea would be much appreciated.

Have you tryed just changing the white text on black bg by another color to check if that is not your problem?

I ended up changing the whole color scheme of the lists and the application colors.  It seems as though some developers try to make their apps "theme friendly", but end up just making problems for theme developers.
