Linux background issue

I have a web site that has been developed with vb.net and asp.net in IE.  Now one of the users has started using raspberry pi's which use Linux operating system.

Functionally the site works fine.  The problem is that the background color of the dropdown boxes have changed and in some cases the text is unreadable.

How can I change the background color of the dropdown boxes when Linux is in use?

Thanks,

A copy of the HTML code that produces the boxes would be helpful.  Just offhand there is no reason I can think of that colors should not be identical when HTML is delivered by Apache or any other server.

Also worth mentioning: which browser is that user running on RPI? This is not about Linux, it is about the browser.

The browser that is used on these computers is Midori

This is snippet of the code in which I am having the issue.

<asp:TableCell runat="server" Text="Department:"
                            ForeColor="#FFFFCC" Width="35%" HorizontalAlign="Left" VerticalAlign="Middle"
                            Font-Names="Arial" Font-Bold="False" Font-Size="12">
                            </asp:TableCell>
                            <asp:TableCell ID="TableCell130" runat="server" CssClass="TextBoxCell" ColumnSpan="3"
                            Width="65%">
                                <asp:DropDownList ID="DeptList" runat="server" Width="95%" BackColor="Black"
                                BorderColor="Gray" BorderStyle="Inset" BorderWidth="2" Font-Bold="False"
                                Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="12" ForeColor="#FFFFCC"
                                AutoPostBack="True" >
                                    <asp:ListItem></asp:ListItem>
                                    <asp:ListItem>Mixing</asp:ListItem>
                                    <asp:ListItem>Extrusion</asp:ListItem>
                                    <asp:ListItem>Engineering</asp:ListItem>
                                    <asp:ListItem>Admin</asp:ListItem>
                                </asp:DropDownList>
                            </asp:TableCell>

Can you try Midori for Windows and see whether it shows the same issue? http://midori-browser.org/download/

If so then it's a Midori issue - try another browser on the RPI decice, if not then it could be a graphics issue on the RPI where it has less colors to display (like 256 instead of 16M).

Yes I have tested it in Midori and the behavior is the same.

So, what distribution is running on the device? Did you try another browser or is knowing that Midori is the issue enough for you?

You mean the source of download?

Gerwin Jansen, EE MVETopic Advisor Commented:
No what has been installed, what is currently running on that RPI device. So we can advise a different browser to install.

I don't know the answer to your question.  At this point it is unknown.

Gerwin Jansen, EE MVETopic Advisor Commented:
Then my advice stays to install a different browser. Because you cannot let us know which Linux distribution is installed I can only tell you to use the package management available on the RPI device to search for and install a different browser. That could possibly solve  your issue.
