XF 1.3 Profile Message Textbox

I cannot find the setting to change the color/styling of this box. The rest of the text boxes are predictable and easy to edit, but these profile page message boxes are beyond my amateur reach. Note: this was a default light scheme converted to a dark one. This behavior also appears on the status textbox (where you can update your own status on your own profile page. I hid that box as it was confusing to posters that thought it was a way to post on their own profile page)

The text box is white until you click in it, when it turns a faint yellow. Any typed text is white and hard to view. Can you help me find the setting to fix this?

Sorry if this has been addressed, but I've searched extensively and cannot find this setting (in xenforo or helper threads/tutorials like these).

You can use .textCtrl and .textCtrl:focus to style that.

If you don't want it to affect the rest of the site, ensure you use the correct specificity.
