I can't reproduce this problem. Please:

  • Mention your graphics card
  • Explain exactly which color you are modifying, and which kinds of operation within the color picker you are doing? Does it immediately show black when you open? Is it when using the eyerdropper, inside or outside the preferences window?

It's selecting red now. What I found out if I select a color within the Preferences window it would be correct. If I try to select outside the Preferences window, that is when it becomes black or now red.

Both screenshots I was selecting the gray in the 3D View. The Preferences that is a separate window picked red. The "built-in" preferences picked the gray of the 3D View. The setting I was changing was Text under Regular.
