The default color for the fields on a fillable form is blue. Is there a way to set a different color or make them clear?
Yes. These settings can be found under Edit - Preferences - Forms:
That's where I started and when it didn't change anything I thought maybe there was something I was missing. I have both of those fields set to "white" and it's still generating blue backgrounds.
Why not simply disable it entirely?
