system preferences - > Appearance

Its the second choice under appearance. Change the color in a pull down box labeled Highlight Color.

Does this solve your problem?

I did try that, but all that does is change the color on the address bar when it loads pages, when I hit Apple+A, or it also changes the color in the pop up box where you type what word you want to search, but when it identifies the matching word on the site it still highlights in grey.

thanks for the reply

What jdgaines posted is correct. Your selected text that appears from the "find" command should be highlighted by whatever color you choose in the "Appearance" setting. You may want to try logging out and back in, or maybe repairing permissions and the usual easy steps first if that isn't working for you.
