In a document made of cells with black background, the cursor and cell selection frame are invisible since they are black as well. This should be easy to solve by using negative colors for the cursor and selections like in Libreoffice writer.
tested under Win8.1 x64 with LibO 126.96.36.199
the cursor turns negative once you enter text in a cell so it's visible (white on black)
only the cell selection frame is invisible (black on black) but only if you select just one cell... if multuple cells are selected hte selection is transparent light blue so it's again visible against a black background
so I confirm just the latter part of the bug, thus I change summary notes from:
UI Enhancement: selection highlighting and cursor invisible in black documents
UI: single cell selection frame is invisible in black documents
enhancement goes into the "importance" field
This should not be an enhancement request because it's very bad usability if user can't see the selected single cell even all or some cells of a sheet have black background color.
Also it must be a regression because in LibO 3.3.0 I can see a dark grey border around a selected single cell.

It is weird that Cor in bug 108240 says the same, but I don't see any change in 3.3.0. I turned up the brightness and contrast in my monitor to be sure.
To be clear: the way I understand this report is that it refers to the frame telling us the position we are. Having a cell selected with the mouse or keyboard so it has a blue overlay colour is different.
Thomas: as you see this change, it would be good, if you tried to bibisect it: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bibisect/Linux

It's probably not worth chasing ghosts here, let's assume this isn't a regression (even if the color had been slightly different, which I couldn't repro, it's not a good state).
