I started to use the dark theme monokai which helps me when I have to sit a long time in front of my screen. I then noticed that with the todonotes package redefined I can barely see the text, as shown in the following picture (Text with dark gray background):

I tried to modify the Texstudio profile but it did not change the dark gray background. Can any one help with this?

    works here. Check the background color at Options -> Syntax Highlighting -> Basic highlighting -> commentTodo. Sep 2 '15 at 19:25

The relevant colour settings are found under

Options -> Configure TeXstudio -> Syntax Highlighting -> Basic Highlighting -> commentTodo

You can edit the background and foreground colours to your liking.
