Text Fill Color Problem - Macromedia Fireworks

I'm trying to design a navigation bar. My nav bar is tan. When selecting font fill color I selected white. As soon as I begin to type within the empty text block, the whole text block turns white. I've tried using no stroke color and the resulting text is blurry and almost sort of like a drop shadow through it I'm using Fireworks MX. Not the updated 2004 Any suggestions...

    See if this Technote is applicable to your situation:

    "Text blocks appear as solid colored rectangles"

    Thanks Sam

    I did have the Geforce2 Ultra video driver, mentioned in the tech notes. After
    changing the Window screen display settings from 16-bit to 32-bit and lowering
    my hardware acceleration, the problem seems solved

    Your suggestion has been a real blessing for my web project!
