XFCE4 Arc theme problem with white text on white background GTK ERROR

so i have this problem that on firefox and on the other browser (yandex browser,falkon) i have white text on white background also black text on black background the site looks weird whole site is white but the text area is black where it shouldnt be

so i think problem is in the theme i use which is Arc-Dark also i get these error everytime i open some application in terminal could that be somewhat related ?

mousepad:8282): Gtk-WARNING **: 02:52:01.791: Theme parsing error: <data>:6:28: The style property GtkWidget:focus-padding is deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore. It will be removed in a future version

Re: XFCE4 Arc theme problem with white text on white background GTK ERROR

bright on dark themes are notorious for trouble w/ any gtk version ever since. There're too many hardcoded colors in all sorts of elements - gtk is controlled by gnome and gnome is very much a "use it as we meant it" thing.
There're severaly themes which attempt to work around known issues and w/ many stock elements things actually work, so there's no problem in like 80% of all cases and everyhitng's completely broken for the rest.
Here the colors seem to bleed into the web renderer.

For browsers, the sylish extension (user css management) comes to the rescue, since it allows you to override the web elements appearance, eg.

input[type="text"], input[type="search"], input[type="password"], input[type="email"], input[type="number"], input[type="tel"], input[type="url"], textarea {
        background-color: #272727 !important;
        color: #fafafa !important;

There're also global dark styles available for download which will attempt to make every webpage completely dark etcetc.

I use the Arc-Dark theme in Openbox and have no problems with gtk2/3 or Firefox, so I suspect your issues stem from XFCE4.

There's an addon for Firefox I use called "Text Contrast For Dark Themes".
