Hmmm, sorry you've had to do that. I just checked going from the person hints list, the all hints list, and search (when I selected the person in the type ahead on the search page) and it came through just fine for me (see attached)... We should probably make it more obvious at showing the person in your tree, that's something that's definitely in the works.

Also, I prefer the brighter yellows and greens myself, but we chose to go with softer colors for technical reasons. Flash (which the original interactive image viewer used) can do something really efficiently called "blend" where it paints the image a different color really well without blurring the image or slowing performance. Since more than 3% of the people trying to use the image viewer can't use flash we opted to go with Javascript, which is a lot more prevalent. One of the only downsides of Javascript vs Flash was that we couldn't paint the image quite as well and needed to soften the color to avoid blurring the image. I know that doesn't make it better, but I did want to let you know the reasoning behind it.
