How do I change the tint colour from around the confluence searchbox?

When you click into the search box in the top right of the screen, the box is highlighted blue around the edges. How do I change this highlight colour? Is it in CSS?

Alternatively you can set outline: none; - take a look at http://jsbin.com/ekateg/1/

You need to set a background or border in order for it to work in Firefox. This might be better than the heavy-handed approach presented by Oliver.

Thanks Sean, that worked a treat.

For reference to others, the CSS code is:

input {
  background-color: #fff;
  border: 1px solid #999;
  outline: none;
}


If I understood you correct you mean the highlighting, which is comming from the browser.

this is a html5 thing. I struggled around a lot, as I wrote a theme for confluence.

its really hard tu supress this ;-)

something to read: http://css-tricks.com/webkit-html5-search-inputs/

what I've done:

input[type="search"] {

    -webkit-appearance: textfield;

}



input[type="search"]::-webkit-search-decoration,

input[type="search"]::-webkit-search-cancel-button,

input[type="search"]::-webkit-search-results-button,

input[type="search"]::-webkit-search-results-decoration {

    display: none;

}

I hope this helps

cheers
