I tried Settings->Editor->General Settings  and changed the font color
NOTHING happened...
And I don't know where to change the background color setting...

May some one help me with this?

Is there some magic address of some file I can edit with a Hex editor to change the colors?

Color-setting is part of syntax highlighting, because foreground- and background-color have to fit, or your code might partly be unreadable.

Go to "Settings -> Editor... -> Syntax highlighting", chose the filetypes you want to change color for, change the background color for "Default".
The most other keywords use the default background, except for some special cases, like "Active line ...".

Afaik you will have to do that for every set of filetype you use.
