    To resolve this issue please add this CSS code to your form:

    select.form-dropdown > option {

        background-color : #cccccc!important;


    How to Inject Custom CSS Codes

    After you add this code your form will look like this.

    Here is my cloned form where I added mentioned CSS code:


    Feel free to clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I've done what you said to each drop down menu, clicked saved on upper
    left, I refreshed the site and browser with new window and still the drop
    down, is black background. I read your website for pointers and still
    nothing. Made 5 attempts over 10 hours incase it was a system issue.
    Please advise. Thank you very much for your support

    It looks like there was an error your form's CSS, which is why the changes were not being applied.


    To resolve the issue, please delete all the css on your form and inject the custom CSS code below to change the background of your dropdown to white.

    .form-dropdown option {

        background: #fff;


    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
