    Unable to see whats typed in website contact forms


    I need help in trying to figure out what to look at.
    On some websites when selecting the "Contact Us" link (or whatever they call it)
    such as : Contact Us - Great American Floors - Norcross - Atlanta GA
    I cannot see the text I am typing in, Apparently the font color is white, if I "select"
    the text, i can see it.

    I've tried three different browsers, any suggestions on what to check next?

    I'm on Windows 8.1

    Thanks

    This may sound strange, can you try a Theme that is as close to the old Windows Classic Theme as possible? Or, before trying that, Windows 7 pro allows adjustments within Personalization menu of text box, text, etc. -- I do not know if Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 does that.

    I changed to the Windows theme and it did not make a difference. The personalize menu only let me change the font size.

I've sync'd my google contacts with the people contacts in 8.1. On initial setup everything transferred ok. To test the link I then added a new contact in google to see if it would sync with the people contacts. So far it hasn't. How often does the people app update with google? regards, jj
