The highligthed match is basically invisible.

Is there any way I can change the color SuperTab uses to highlight matches? Is this perhaps a compatibility issue with my theme (molokai) or with my cursor color? Thanks,

Those colors are not defined by SuperTab, they are defined by your colorscheme.

To change the colors of the completion menu, open ~/.vim/colors/colorscheme_name.vim and edit the lines starting with hi Pmenu*.

Thanks, for pointing me to the right direction. No need to edit those lines myself, the latest version of molokai corrects the bug, I just had to update it. – enricoferrero Aug 20 '13 at 19:29
