This applies not only to the dark green menu, but also drop-down menus (see the attachment).

I also liked the light green focus that used to be applied the barcode fields, MARC subfields etc. in the XUL client. I know the light blue frame used for focus in the web client is standard, but the light green field background was much more noticeable.

I've also had some feedback that it is easy to lose your place when editing a MARC record

I am attaching a screenshot showing keyboard focus in MARC 100 $a. The pale blue/dark gray is visually challenging [screenshot attached].

I strongly agree that the contrast of the active field in the Marc editor should be much greater than it is now (the green background in XUL client used to be helpful).

I have another comment from our staff - not related exactly to focus but to the contrast of the interface:
Some staff pointed, that it is hard to see, which card in the MARC record is currently being used; they would like the active card to be more distinctly distinguished than just by the gray frame (see the attachment).
