The problem is that both the box and text is white. You might try this from the readme file from BlackMate.

Like it's the case with other dark themes, there may be readability issues in LibreOffice and also in webpage input fields when seen with Firefox or Epiphany. Fortunately, there are workarounds:

LibreOffice
============
The first issue can be fixed by changing "OOO > Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Appearance > Document background" to white after disabling automatic detection of high contrast in Accessibility.

Firefox
========
To fix the second issue for Firefox, create '~/.mozilla/firefox/<YOUR_PROFILE>/chrome/userContent.css' with this in it:

input, textarea, select {
   -moz-appearance: none !important;
   background-color: white;
   color: black;
}

You might also have to create '~/.mozilla/firefox/<YOUR_PROFILE>/chrome/userChrome.css' as:

menubar {
   color: white !important;
}
