What's with this weird text field highlighting?

Am I the only one seeing this in text fields while they are in focus?

Buttons highlight the same way:

I don't care for it at all, it obscures the text.

No highlighting here.

Not that one here.

PC, tablet or mobile?

What if you turn it off and restart?

Very odd. This is on my laptop, Google Chrome. Restarted multiple times within the past few days, still seeing it.

I only use Chrome on a tablet and I see the normal light yellow highlite. Searching the topic suggests it is a site coding issue e.g., https://stackoverflow.com/questions/21003535/anyway-to-prevent-the-blue-highlighting-of-elements-in-chrome-when-clicking-quic

Have you tried clearing the Chrome cache, including site data?

edit to add: coding issue is not necessarily this site, if that is what it is. I was thinking that maybe you picked up a change somewhere and it was persistent, hence the cache clear.

Yes, already tried (several times).

These issues only seem to appear on ETO, nowhere else.

Well...yeah...weird. All I can say, and I know it is not much help, is that, using Chrome on my tablet (Samsung/Android), I have never seen that.

I'm curious, did you resolve this (if so how)? Did it continue with the new board software?

Haven't noticed it in a while. I guess I got used to it so I didn't realize it when it went away.
