If you have problems seeing text on input fields in Firefox with any particular theme this problem can be solved by adding a
~/.mozilla/firefox/********.default/user.js file to your Firefox default profile including the line
user_pref("widget.content.gtk-theme-override", "Adwaita"); and restarting Firefox.
This forces Firefox to use the GTK default Adwaita theme for rendering all website content.
The theme includes a helper script that creates the file with this content in the correct location. To access the tool open a terminal window and use the following command to make the script executable and launch it.
chmod +x ~/.themes/Adapta-Eta/firefox_fix.sh && ~/.themes/Adapta-Eta/firefox_fix.sh
