Warning pop up boxes

So you all know the system pop up boxes that occur when you need to say choose the default program to execute a task. Well I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed that the boxes are white along with the text, making it very difficult to read. This isn't an issue when there is an app icon next to the text, but I'm having the issue in EZpdf reader, and choosing which chapter to go to in this lengthy paper is proving more than difficult. This has been like this since I took my Vox out of the box, before any 'tweaking'. Anyway, anyone know of a system setting to change the box or text default colour?

Cheers

Update:

Here's a few screenshots of it happening. When I select an option, the text changes to a light grey and is visible on the white background, but of course that selects what ever I have pressed. As indicated above, this is not an issue when the icons are present, but in the case of EZpdf reader, it makes jumping around large 1300 page documents a pain

p.s. if you tilt your monitor back, it's possible to view the text beside the page numbers in the PDF screenshot





Cheers again

I think I have seen a similar thing, thought it might have been the app

loaded up overdrive last week, and a pop up appeared, the text area was blank, and it has a yes/no at the bottom

it should have been informing me a software update was available and do I want to install it, but I couldnt read the text

Don't think it's the app, as mine has done it from day one, right after installing Dolphin Browser HD from GetJar, and giving me a system popup to choose the default browser. Can anyone do a test by say clearing the default actions for a 3rd party browser/launcher then choosing to launch something? I'm just curious if it's the same on other Vox units...man I was in Chapters yesterday too. Should have tried it there

Cheers

LOL, oh that's what that was! I think I chose yes once and a web browser page loaded on the Overdrive site. I closed the browser. I didn't know what was going on, as I was trying to use Overdrive to go download a library book that I had placed a hold on. Next time, I'll let the app update.
