If you have the "Productivity Power Tools" extension installed it's an option:

power tools options screen


Tools / Options / Environment Section / Fonts and Colors / Current Line


Tools / Options / expand the environment section / Fonts and Colors / Current Line - change the background from Default to ... dark gray (or whatever that color is you are using; it doesn't look like pure black to me ...)
