Changing font color -- this should be easy but I can't do it!

I've wasted enough time with Firebug, and need help with this simple request.

Please go to this page:  Search box

I'm trying to change the color for the word "Search..." in the upper right search box.

Maybe my eyes are sleepy but I cant' get firebug to help me change the color of the text to any color.  White will do.

Also, part "B" to this question. If you look at the page in Chrome the upper right brown area containing the search box and Social Media icons and the "Sign In" text look fine  But in Firebox, the search icons and "Sign In" are too low and are partially below the brown area..   Any way to keep those consistent?

Looking for your help! ;)
