    Getting rid of the yellow text field - form !

    Recently, I have noticed (probably it was there before as well, only I haven't noticed) that when I make a form, some of the text fields turn yellowish ...

    Looks pretty ugly. Is there a way to get rid of this?

    Thanks guys.

    no answer from me, just noticed the same thing; in ie7

    i've noticed this in ie7 (but not all versions). and as you say, not all the fields. it's really weird i reckon. i haven't got a clue what it is. i don't have ie7 or any other ie myself but a guy who i've done a site for uses ie7 and some of the form fields are yellow for him in two totally different forms (different web sites), both just some of the fields. using browsershots.org to see screen shots of the site i've done, in ie7, none of the fields are yellow ! i'm past really caring now, but i suppose the oddity of it still makes me a bit interested.

    It's from the Google Toolbar

    This is caused by the 'AutoFill' option on the Google Toolbar. Search around and you will find that there are a number of scripts such as http://code.jenseng.com/google/#autofillusers which will change the color of the fields.

    It is controlled by the browser so there is nothing you can do in the web page code to affect it. Some people like it and others don't. Those that don't can turn it off in their browser.

    I've seen IE6 do it on fields that contain sensitive information...although that could possibly be something the site developer decided to do. In that context, I like it.
    Life would be so much easier if we
    could just look at the source code.
