Description Christoph Feck 2009-11-29 03:45:51 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

It may be a relict of the old 16 color VGA palette used by early web browsers. I am talking about the pink text color used for active/new links.

The color is too bright against the default white View color, making it unsuitable for user's attention about new items. I'd suggest to make it darker, or use a different shade of color.

Re-assigned to Nuno: can you pick a cool color for the above ? (I know you hate kcm).

In the colors kcm on the colors tab you can see the default value for 'Active text' is bright pink. (#FF80E0)

Default Oxygen "Window" colors

It is even worse with "Active" against "Window" in default Oxygen palette. In fact, it is unreadable, see bug 303974.
