Firefox Text Field Colors

Question: Firefox Text Field Colors

Where is the setting to change the color of text fields? The color options in the options menues just change or force colors on the webpages themselves. Im looking to just change the color of the address/google bar, and any text fields that happen to appear on a webpage. Right now they are all a dark ugly grey, where if I open the same page in IE everything is properly colored to the pages defaults or to my light colored xp theme.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Stuart

Seems to be the fashion lately to have dark text on a dark background. I'm still using my Trust Rusty CRT monitor so these are practically unreadable for me. Anyone know a fix without using SeaMonkey or some other complex mumbo jumbo? Just need contrasting text so I can read it.

I'm using Firefox 3.6.2. Right now the only way I can read text on these sites is to select it with the mouse. Even then I don't always get contrast.

Answer:Firefox - make text readable on sites with dark background colors

Hi,

This may be not what you are after, but what about:

Firefox > Tools > Options > Content tab > Colours > Uncheck "Allow pages to choose their own colours, instead of using my selections above"

Does this solve the issue?

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I am curious as to why whenever I change my theme colors, the text message bubbles are completely different. I have currently changed my theme to have blue colors, but my text messages are orange. I have no idea how to fix this. I have tried everything I can think of. Is this something that can't e fixed? I think it's kind of dumb personally. I like having the ability to change the text messaging colors as I have with all my other phones. At least 8.1 worked the way I was expecting it to. When I change colors on the theme, the messaging colors change with it. Any help or info would be great. Thanks

One of the best rated form fillers is Roboform. It works in Firefox and IE.

Quality Artificial Intelligence
RoboForm is really smart in filling in forms; it is the most precise form filler on the market. We use Artificial Intelligence techniques to achieve this kind of precision and we test RoboForm thoroughly.

Selective Form Filling
You can ask RoboForm to fill just a part of your form, rather than the complete form. Simply select (highlight) the fields that you want RoboForm to fill and click any form filling button -- only the selected fields will be filled.




You could also try one of these Firefox addons:

Question: Text Field Issues

While the main reason for this help request is to help me fix the text field problem Im having, there are a couple other problems as well.

It has become an ongoing problem, no clue what causes it. In certain games, so far only Mabinogi and Test Drive Unlimited, when I go to type something in a text field, my computer pauses, and people talking in Ventrilo repeat themselves over and over for a couple seconds. The same thing happens when I exit a text field in said games. No one else I have talked to has this issue, and I am fairly certain they have slower computers than me, so no clue what the issue is.

The other problem is my graphics card. I have an ATI Radeon x800 card, and when I am playing games, I get errors when it does not even seem to be taking up much memory. I was playing Test Drive Unlimited which I just got today, and I was getting a report error window for ccc.exe about every minute in game. If I ignored it, I could keep going, but eventually another error window popped up saying the same thing, so I shut the game down. I meet the minimum requirements, but I have no clue why its doing this. My computer has a history of overheating, but I don't know if its due to that.

Also, is there a program I can use to monitor the heat in my computer? I'd like to know if that is truly the problem here, as I have been told that my card could be damaged by now if it is overheating.

Answer:Text Field Issues

First heer is a link to the site that has a monitor for CPU and Heat along with a few other things. It is called MBM and about the 11th item down. It is Freeware.I would also suggest getting any Driver updates needed. I do not know what system you have but you can go to the manufacturers site and retrieve them from there. Do these two things and then try the game again so we know if it is a heat problem which it sounds likehttp://www.freeware-guide.com/dir/util/optdiag2.htmlPost back and let us knowThank you Jitaa

Ok, first, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 on an HP Pavilion 8760c. It originally came with Windows 98, but the previous owner upgraded it to the XP sometime before giving the computer to me. I do NOT have any disks, neither the original system disks nor any restore disks, nor does there seem to be any restore partition on the hard drive.

First problem is -- for some reason when I try to type into any text fields in any windows based programs, the cursor goes into hyperblink mode, won't click into any text field, and won't let me type in any of them. I first noticed the problem when I tried to use internet explorer, I went to Google like normal and while it will let me type in the address bar at the top, it won't type into the Google search field. I have since found out it is NOT IE specific, but it won't let me type into the windows help search field, or the field where you enter a name for a restore point when manually setting it, or in the captcha box on a game program I use or pretty much anything windows based. I downloaded Firefox and I can type in Firefox with no problems, which is fine for searching the web, but does not fix the problem.

Second, with the system restore... this computer used to work fine. I used it occasionally at my old house, then we moved and the computer sat idle for about nine months, and I just hooked it back up last week. When I did I found problems with the sound as well as the problem with the text fields I mentione... Read more

I have a table consisting of 8 columns by 26 rows. In each cell, I'm adding a Text Form Field. Is there anyway, besides doing it cell by cell, where I can just copy a row, then paste the same Text Form Field with text length maximums in the other 25 rows?
 

Answer:Word - Text Form Field

Sure, Brian.
Create first row.
In Print Layout view, take your mouse pointer to the left of the left-most cell in the row, and it should turn into a 1:00 pointing arrow. Click to select the whole row, then Ctrl+C to copy. Place your cursor in front of the paragraph return just below the table OR in the left-most cell of the row that you want a new row above, and hit Paste.

So about a year or so I decided to put some cool dreamscene I found online and I put it on my desktop. What happens is even tough the dreamscene plays smoothly there were 2 things always happening back then. First one was that ocasionally the dreamscene wouldn't "load" when I logged on it would just be a stuck image(this one isn't rly much of a big deal) and the second one is the colors of my desktop icons changing to a different colour making it almost impossible to read. And even tough I knew each program there was on my desktop by looking at the image it's still a little bit annoying.

Anyways I stopped messing with the dreamscenes shortly after that time but now I sort of created one of my own and I'd rly like to know how could I possibly fix the text colour thingie. I've already tried to change the desktop colours manually but it just doesn't do it at all. I've also tried to calibrate the colours accordingly with the background I'm using and the system still puts the text with some sort of transparency. As soon as I put let's say a classic theme or an aero theme from windows 7 the colours go back to normal.

Also you will probably advise me and ask: why would you want to do that anyways? it's just gonna slow down your pc.

Well I'm working on a project and I made this rly catchy video that's supposed to be running in computer screens exactly like a dreamscene. The purpose is to lure clients into taking a peak at said monitors. Anyways getting offtopic here.

If it can be done then it would only be through a new visual style but I'm not sure that it's possible even then. As far as I know this effect is controlled by the system so whatever colour text you have the inactive sections will always be a dimmed version of it.

Answer:MS Access 2010 Text Field Question

There are 3 ways to do this.
1. This method uses a query to combine the data, but it will not store the combined data and it will not refresh on it's own if you add or change the data.
2. This method combines the data in and Unbound field by making it the Control Source of the Field. This will not save the data to a table but will automatically update.
3. This method uses VBA in the After Update Event Procedures of the 3 fields and will automatically update the data and also save it to a table if required.
The choice is yours.

I am making a program in C++ and want to change the colors of a couple of sentences (not the entire body of text). I have been told to use conio.h and supposed commands but haven't been able to get any of them to work. Can you please give me some help with this?

Also, I would like to add a line where the user is prompted if they want sound in the program:

cout << "Would you like sound?\n";
cout << "1. Yes\n2. No.";
cin >> SoundChoice
if (SoundChoice == 1)
{
what code should I put here???
}
else
{
cout << "No sound";
}

Can you please help me (I want to either play a wave file or a midi file). I am using Borland C++ 4.52.

Thanks.

i Know it can be done I've done it before but i forgot how i did it.
Thanks in advance for any help I can get.
 

Answer:[Solved] Desktop text colors?

Right-click an empty area of your desktop, and then click Properties.
Click the Appearance tab, and then click Advanced.
In the Item list or in the preview window, click the Window element that you want to change.

All options for windows elements are available. In the color box, specify the the color you want to use. Once you are in there you can play around and see what you like. Once you have it set the way you want it, click ok to save your settings. I hope this was helpful to you.

Hi everyone!

I'm sure this is probably something very simple that I'm missing...

I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?

I was in settings today and It gave me a message telling me I had to reset my settings because something or another was corrupt. I did so and most stuff works fine (Had to sign back into a bunch of stuff) but I do have one problem. Text fields no longer seem able to remember anything I've put into them. For example when trying to sign in here I usually just click the username box, "Bad-People" comes up and I click it to enter it automatically. But "Bad-People" doesn't come up anymore.
 
I figured resetting things just erased the history. That would have been fine but it also doesn't remember anything I enter new. So if I signed in here, then signed out, and then tried to sign in again "Bad-People" STILL wouldn't show up. This is a feature I use A LOT on a number of sites but it no longer works on any site I've tried.

As it appears there is no way to make these text form fields scrollable, it is possible to make the text form field expandable when typing in it?

I thought I read somewhere that it was possible to do a search on a reserved character by putting "" around it. I made the mistake of annotating some appended text fields with "**" (without the quotes) so I would know which records had been added. At some point, I want to remove those two asterisks. . . but, of course, I suddenly realized that Access recognizes an "*" as a wild card meaning something/anything, not the "*" character. So a search using Like "***" or "*'**'" either finds nothing or finds every record with anything in the field.

So the question is, is there a way to search for a literal "**" in Access? OBP. . . are you home today?

I have an excel file with a column with values like 100, 200, 500, 500-02, and 500-04.
Access wants the column to be a number because 500-02 is not one of the first records.

If I use the acImport or acLink I get the same results. Which is an error importing (I get all the data just not the text values in the column) or a null value in the link when view from Access (even though you can open the spreadsheet with excel and see the true data). If I use the import Wizard and change the Field to text it that data is fine.

I also tried acImporting to an existing table with the field set a text but it changes it back to numeric and screws up.

When replying to an e-mail or just when composing my own e-mails in Outlook Express I could go somewhere in the dialogue, click then hit the "A" for text colors. I could select any color in the color box, click on it and the text would change to that color. About two weeks ago the text color box started coming up blank (no color choices) when I clicked on the "A". This happens in Outlook Express and in the Web-mail option. I cannot get the text to change colors no matter what I have tried. I called my internet server and they have tried to help by helping me install Win Zip (which I have no idea what I am supposed to do with). According to them, I may have to clear every single thing I want saved off of my laptop (pictures, documents etc.) before I can begin to do what needs to be done (a big long process) to restore the ability to change text colors in Outlook Express. Can I not just click on SOMETHING...ANYTHING.....to get the text color option back like I had it before in Outlooke Express? I can still change text colors in Word when I am writing a document there. I can also use the Bold, Italic and Underlining in the tool bar. Just cannot use the text color option. Please help me. I really appreciate anything you can suggest. Thank you very much.

Hi,

I am currently using Word 2003 and have created a template. Within the template are text fields. My current issue is that if I make a change to formatting in one of the text fields, it replicates to all of the text fields. To give an example in the screen shot if I enter text then change the formatting under Point 1 (Project Statement) that change remains with that text field. If I go down to the next form field, and before entering any text, make formatting changes, that replicates to all of the form fields below. Similarly if text is entered first, then a formatting change made i.e. bullet point, that then seems to replicate through to the rest of the text fields. Can someone please explain as to why this is happening? thanks.

For a 'Yes/No' data type, my MS Access 2013 does not allow me to change from the default 'check box' to the 'text box' option under lookup field properties - display control. It was originally able to but I think something has happened to it.

The problem is not table or database specific as I have tried other tables and databases. I even reinstalled MS Access to make sure it was not the application's fault. It still exists and I don't know what went wrong.
Could someone please advise?

Hi, I've been tearing my hair out over this problems for the last couple of days. I decided to upgrade my video card from a 650 to a zotac 960 2gb AMP. All was well and it ran most games. However, upon changing the resolution or refresh rate of my monitor, the color of the whole screen would turn really dark and the text would become very blurry.

I've installed the latest driver for the new card and my monitor is listed as Generic PnP. It's a LG M227WAP monitor but I was not able to find any drivers for it, and it had worked perfectly before with the 650.

And also, just last night, some of the text on my computer became very small. I've attached a small image to show you what I mean. Icon images and stuff are normal sized, but google chrome titles and the right click bar are very small. I'm using 100% display scale which is what I've always used. It's never been like this.

I'd appreciate any help you guys can give me. Thanks for reading this.
Edit: Oh, and when I was using the old graphic card with no problems, I was using VGA. Now I'm using HDMI because the 960 has no VGA plug. Maybe this might have something to do with it.

So this started happening a few weeks ago. At first I thought it was an issue with an addon that might have done out of date or something but this is happening across 3 different systems... one of which is isolated from the other two (my workstation at work, desktop at home and my laptop... which I'm the only one with access to the later two), so not sure what the problem could be.

So, for an example, if I go to YouTube, the font color of all the comments are white. If I highlight the area, I can see the text... but otherwise it's invisible. Likewise for certain elements on sites like Engadget. Some things are visible... others are either white or a very bright color that makes it next to impossible to read on a light colored background. Craigslist is almost impossible to read. I assumed that, at first, it was due to script blocking or something... but I've uninstalled ALL of my addons and it hasn't corrected it. The only way that I can seem to 'fix' it is to run a "stylish" theme for an affected website... but even that has it's limits.

Is this happening for anyone else? Both chrome and IE render the page fine... this seems like it's only an issue with Firefox

Hey there, long time reader first time poster!

(If you know of a great advanced tutorial on Access, please let me know. I know how to set up the basics, now I'd like to know how the program really runs)

I'm currently working on a form that allows users to search for equipment. The category of the equipment is slectable through a combo box, and the searched text is entered in a text field. The results are displayed in a list box.

What've I've tried is using a 'Find' button to enter this sql query into the RowSource of the list box:

Private Sub Equipment_Find_Click()

Me.Equipment_List.RowSource = "SELECT Equipment.Type, Equipment.Manufacturer, Equipment.Model FROM Equipment WHERE (((Equipment." & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Search_Category.Column(0) & strQuote & ")=" & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Find_Text & strQuote & "))ORDER BY Equipment.Type DESC;"

End Sub

The result i get is a pop up window with a text field. If i re-enter the text in that feild the info pops up nicely. What am I doing wrong, and how do i get rid of that popup?

Hey folks. This may sound like a minor problem but give it a read please. I noticed that when I happen to hold my left mouse button down on the desktop and slide it all the way up to the upper left hand corner of the desktop, then a two symbol wide invisible textfield is highlighted (see attached image "bluethingy").

I recall that having come across this anomally in the past that it occorred in conjunction with some malware but remember no details. There is something slowing down my computer at the moment but none of the malware seeking programs (ive gone through the list that majorgeeks recommend) that I have run has taken care of the lag, or this blue thingy. Does anybody have any insight into this blue thingy? Ill send the hijack this file if anyones interested, but am mostly curious about the blue field.

*** Curious about another thing: When visiting websites (using IE) with textfields for me to enter text, in some phases of my computers life the cursor when in this field blinks like a mad dog. This usually lets me know that theres some malware doing its thing and that its time for me to clean up a little. My question is if you have seen this happen: What kind of malware is doing it or where does it reside? - is it a helper? - is it unrelated to IE? Or is it not malware at all and just annoying?

Is there a way to fix washed out colors on a Dell Precision 7510?  I am guessing this is a pretty expensive unit and the colors look washed out and difficult to read because the contrast is so poor. 
Also text is tiny on this and scaling messes up everything else on the screen.  Some things are too small and others too big.  Its huge size differences. 
I have tried all the settings to help make the text better and colors more clear but then the dark is too dark and the light is too light.  There is no middle ground here. 
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Answer:Dell Precision 7510 Colors Washed Out and small text

If that system has the Intel Display Power Saving Technology setting, that is very likely responsible for your washed out colors.  If the setting is available, it will be under Intel Graphics Settings > Power > On Battery, or thereabouts.  What operating system and display resolution is your Precision 7510 running?  Also note that in many cases, scaling changes require you to log off and back on in order to be applied properly.  Newer releases of Windows 10 and third-party applications have been getting better about redrawing themselves immediately so that this isn't required, but that's not universally true yet, so if you haven't tried that yet, see if you like the appearance of text and graphic elements after a logoff/logon cycle.

I would disable active desktop as it is a security risk. Right click an empty spot on the Desktop > Properties > Desktop tab > Customize Desktop button > Web tab > uncheck any boxes. If the desktop image changes then set it up to your preferred image.
 
For Enviromental Variable issue right click Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Environmental Variables button. In the System Variable Section click on PATHTXT. Press edit. If MSC is not in the list add it with a semicolon.  ;.msc

Is there anyway to change this color from Firefox?

I've tried different themes but it's still there.
 

Answer:Custom Colors on Firefox

If you want a blue look you can try out the outlook 2003 blue theme, I use it and love it.

The Firefox default tab colors are gray. I want to change to a aqua or light blue. The close tabs that is. I looked at the tab mix plus and others. It doesn't solve my answer. Can you all help me on this please?

Answer:Firefox closed tab colors

Have you had a look to see if any Themes do that?

I am unable to view colors in Firefox. For example, this is how the forum looks like:
However, the page displays fine in Opera. In addition, I can't view the colors in http://html-color-codes.com/, but they show up fine in Opera.
Any ideas?

Every time I forward a message or compose a new message in Gmail,using Firefox 3.6.12 - entering an address in the TO: field, and clicking SEND, I get a message that there is a bad address in the BCC: field.

The Message when I go to the Bcc field: The address "< in the "Bcc" field was not recognized. Please make sure that all addresses are properly formed.

The URL, always the same, also shows when I click to open the BCC venue

There is no URL when I use Reply and no URL using reply and the Bcc field

The above URL showed up out of the blue and I don't know how to get rid of it.

This only happens using Firefox, not IE.

I use a Dell Vostro 200 that's a year old - Window XP Pro - I use Firefox 99% of the time.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and help.

Answer:URL resides in Gmail Bcc field using firefox SEND AND FORWARD

I Figured out by process of elimination that one of my Firefox add-ons,
Greasemonkey 0.8.20100408.6 - was causing the URL residing in my Bcc: field.

I have been trying to find help from different compter help forums but it seems that I can not get any help with my problems. I was told to just reformat my pc. Which I may end up doing but want to make sure that is the last resort type thing. Since my warrenty for this pc has expired so I am not sure if I am able to receive any of the disks that I need for free or cheap. So I can reformat my pc.Anyways I want to list my problems here. I do not think this is a maleware issue as I have already been through all the clean ups. It seems that my pc is free of viruses and spyware. Though maybe something is hidden in my pc which I can not find.
 
Either way here is the main issues that is going on with my computer which I really would like help on. Let's begin with the windows update. I have 2 windows update that wants me to update I.E. to it's latest version. However, I am unable to do that for some reason. The error it gives me is it failed to update. I have tried uinstalling I.e. but it won't allow me to. I have tired reinstalling it but it won't allow me to. I have tried deleting it from the main directly but that did not work. I do not use I.e. but the fact that my pc has to restart to update this is getting a bit annoying. So I would like a way to fix this if possible. Once again I already tried uinstalling it, hiding i.e update, and reinstalling i.e. Nothing seems to work.

Answer:Firefox text blurs, Windows updates won't update, firefox restarts my pc.etc

If it does come to reloading the system you can borrow a copy of Vista from friend, unfortunately MS does not supply any ISO's on Digital River.  One very important thing you must use the same version of Vista, also look over the computers box for Microsoft COA sticker with the serial number on it you must have that.  Get the info ahead of time, right my computer it will show your version. It is possible that you may not have to go through that if the machine has a recovery partition, you would need to look on the makers site.
 
Now all that being said I feel you do in fact have a bug and need some help from the guys up here!

I would like Firefox to not show the high contrast colors that are used in My PC. Some web sites "hide" parts of their pages and I have to 'click' 7 or 8 times get the 'lost' hidden boxes or texts to show (by having to click on Start/start menu/colors/high contrast/ themes/none/apply, then apply in Firefox).

I could even use a short-cut button to stop/start using the high contrast setting.

Any help?
Thanks

Under options, there is a box that can be checked to have the browser use
the colors I have chosen. But it doesn't seem to work. I get a washed out

Thanks for any help offered,

Answer:Changing Colors in Mozilla Firefox Browser

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Yes click tools then options then the general tab then fonts and colours and uncheck the box that says use system colours.

Select the colours that you wish to use and check the box that says use my colours. You will have to restart Firefox for the changes to take effect.

You know when you try to login to gmail (or any web email for that matter) and you click on the login field and your login ID pops up? Is there a way to get Firefox to work so that when you click the login field nothing pops up? Better yet, is there a way you can pick and choose which logins show up? Thanks in advance.

I have a table titled time_slips used to track the amount of time an attorney spends with a member. In the time_slips table there is a field titled reference_id which is a combo box pulling it's displayed information from another table titled references. Also in the time_slips table is a field named details which is native to this table.

My question is, can I have the details field auto-populate "no charge" when a certain reference id is selected (i.e. 300)?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I use due dates on my Outlook tasks. When I customize my Tasks list (in the Calendar view) to group by due date, I just get too many groupings (one for each due date!). I would like to know if I can create a custom field called 'Due Month' and/or 'Due Week', extracted from the 'Due Date', so I can view my tasks by what is due during a given week or month. If the answer is yes, any suggestions on the technique I would use would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I attached my database what i would like to do is create a form when an end user will enter a corresponding user ID from that I wish to populate textbox fields with Agent Name, Supervisor, Location, Dept *all seperate text boxes of course* I have attached the database if someone could help me do this it would be great. Let me know if you need any further details to help get me through this.
 

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.
