My understanding is that this is an OS issue.  If you switch focus from 
the Find window to the source document window, then the highlighting 
color will be correct.  Unfortunately (in this case, anyway), the OS 
changes highlights in non-focused windows to the default light grey.  
Try searching the archives for "texshop highlight"; I think this was 
discussed before.
