What happens when you click on the colored line? No hiliting at all? 
What about when you click on the non-colored lines?

Have you set any properties of the field, or have you just used the 
standard scrolling list field from the tools palette? Make sure you 
haven't set the hiliteColor of the field (or the object it inherits 
from -  group,card, stack, etc) to the same as the background color.
