for auto filled fields, need to change the text and background colours

for some reason bootstrap or the browser is doing this to auto filled fields. 

according to my searching there is a pseudo class added to auto filled fields

CSS

input:-webkit-autofill {
color: #444!important;
}

this option however does not seem to fix it for me. 

the option that fixed it is here, apparently changing the focus and adding a shadow to the text fixes it. I found this mentioned here.

CSS

input:-webkit-autofill:focus {
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 0 50px #3b3b3b inset;/*your box-shadow*/
    -webkit-text-fill-color: #b1b1b1;
}

Working Demo, showing auto fill not going white anymore. so you can actually read the text. 

Update here is the css that worked for me

CSS

input:-webkit-autofill {
    -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0 50px white inset;
    -webkit-text-fill-color: #333;
}
input:-webkit-autofill:focus {
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 0 50px #3b3b3b inset;
    -webkit-text-fill-color: #b1b1b1;
}

CSS

/* Not Working #1 */
@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
     input:-webkit-autofill {
        color: #b1b1b1!important;
        background-color: #3b3b3b!important;
    }
}

/* Not Working #2 */
input:-webkit-autofill {
  color: #444!important; 
}

/* This one seems to work, but the background is still white and dark text, but at least you can read the fields */
input:-webkit-autofill {
    -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0 50px white inset;
    -webkit-text-fill-color: #333;
}
input:-webkit-autofill:focus {
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 0 50px #3b3b3b inset;
    -webkit-text-fill-color: #b1b1b1;
}
