the yellow highlighting is called Mark Occurrences, it is a feature which highlights all occurrences of element under cursor in the current document. By default the highlight persist until next element is selected. The behavior can be customized in Tools-> Options -> Editor -> Highlighting (or Mark Occurrences before 7.2).
The color of highlighting can be customized in Options -> Fonts&Colors -> Syntax -> language:java ->Category: Mark Occurrences

Hope it helps

normally I work with green foreground and black background..

"main" and there is no option to change this... what does the highlight means anyway?

also the color of "args" in comment is "black" which is different from the default comments 
color.  this becomes a problem when I change the background to "black" which makes the word 
"args" in comment invisible..

even after restoring the color properties the problem still remains...

any idea? did I forgot to change a property?

I have also attached the exported fonts&  colors properties...
