Customized Firefox Theme causes problems in JIRA

A user has a customized JIRA theme for her firefox browser, for example she has set her textarea to dark grey. When she uses JIRA, she cannot see the content in her textarea. Her textarea remains dary grey and the text matches. Is there a way to resolve this?
