If anyone else is having a trouble finding this form on (took me a few minutes), it's at the bottom right of the page when you're logged out.

Caused by color: #555 !important (and color: #000 !important for :hover) in wptv2/style.css:

input[type=submit], button, .button {
	color: #555 !important;

input[type=submit]:hover, button:hover, .button:hover, input[type=submit]:focus, button:focus, .button:focus {
	color: #000 !important;

  • Keywords needs-patch added

Removing the !important fixes the issue, but it's not quite clear why it was added in the first place. In [1024] it was already there.

If anyone wants to take a stab at the patch, the theme is here: sites/trunk/

Yes @SergeyBiryukov if remove !important than issue fix. In this patch 3083.patch ​i have removed because it not needed to add !important.
