Home Forums CSS select hover background change Reply To: select hover background change


Support for modifying <select> is pretty poor. There are ways to change the highlight color in Firefox, by adding a box-shadow to the CSS for option:hover but this is browser-specific.

Unfortunately your best option is probably replacing the <select> box entirely via some pseudo-construct, if it is essential to you that you override the browser defaults.
