I did a fresh install of Oxygen 3, and installed WindowBuilder 1.9.1 from the marketplace. I opened up a past GUI project containing a dialog box, which also contained a JFace ColorSelector component.

However, I couldn't see the ColorSelector component in the design view. It doesn't show the component on the dialog box design (so the other components are moved up), it doesn't also appear on the design palette.

Is there something I missed during installation, or is ColorSelector depracated?

The color selector still works. Maybe the controls have changed in appearance since your last update of Eclipse. Look for little boxes that initially have "..." in them. Once you've moused on one of them and selected a color, the numerical code for the color white will change. Hmmm. When I click on "insert image" it turns out that I cannot insert an image but only a website URL. So, look at the properties box for, e.g., a JTextField.. You should see: Variable, Bounds, Class, background. Background has some numbers beside it indicating the default background color. Click on the little box at the right that has "..." in it. Select a color and click accept.

Jf that doesn't work, try adding something like this in the source details for the JTextField that you can see in source mode:
txtFeloniousGunk.setBackground(Color.YELLOW);
txtFeloniousGunk.setForeground(Color.RED);
