In www-client/xombrero-1.4.0 the text in address bar (as well as in the search bar at the top and a page-search bar at the bottom) is white on a white background, which makes it invisible. The selection background is also white for some reason, and selecting the text does not let one read it anyway.
Maybe something is wrong with the GTK3 theme -- I'm not sure. I use Xfce with its default theme currently.
$ equery m www-client/xombrero
!!! No packages matching 'www-client/xombrero'
It's not in the Portage tree. Is this package from an overlay?

It is in Portage tree. It was added recently, I believe.
Right, will set up a CVS based lookup one of these days. Thanks, assigned!
works for me. It is probably related to your gtk3 theme. please verify it and report a bug upstream, if applicable.

Sure, I'd like to check it out, but could you please give me some hint on how to do that? What do I have to verify (or search for) actually?
I tried to switch from my Xfce theme for GTK to "Raleigh" theme, and I can see the text in address field with the latter. However, it seems strange, because "Raleigh" theme exists for GTK-2 only, and not for GTK-3.
One more bit of (hopefully, useful) information on this problem. I installed another GTK3-based web browser -- Midori -- and it does not have such problem with invisible address text (white on white). Everything looks normal in Midori with the same GTK theme.
Doesn't it mean the problem is not GTK theme related?
Created attachment 375110 [details, diff]
So I solved my issue by changing some color parameters in /usr/share/xombrero/xombrero.css (see the attached .diff file) in accordance with the colors defined in my GTK theme (/usr/share/themes/Xfce-4.6/gtk-3.0/gtk.css).
Now I am not sure if this method is compatible with GTK-2 or not.
