Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

Also if you highlight some code in a question and then click on the menu and the text colour of Find and Web Search options are black, instead of white like the rest of the text.

I added the two devices that I could reproduce this on. It doesn't happen on a Toshiba AT10. – Howli Mar 23 '14 at 23:24
    
I've never seen this "Web Search" option before in my life. Is this something custom on your phone? Do you see this in every app that lets you select text? – Kasra Rahjerdi Mar 24 '14 at 15:56
    
I never saw it either until I noticed it there. It shows on the Gmail and Chrome app but not the ColorNote, ES File Explorer app or one I made myself. – Howli Mar 24 '14 at 16:08
    
Not repro'd on Nexus 5, Android 6.0.1, SE app v1.0.83, but it might be related to Android issue, not SE app. AFAIK, Android/Google/Chrome adds "Web Search" when highlighting a text as a shortcut to search on Google app, and it's out of Stack Exchange's control to fix it. As for the second issue, it's should be on-topic since it could be fixed on SE app (issue related to app's theme). – Portal Mar 21 at 3:30
