cant change color on visited sites without changing background /foreground colors that hide options on the sitec

Posted

I want to change the color of visited sites, but am forced to set background and foreground colors which don't properly show all of the colors for controls etc on many websites. I have to uncheck the button to Allow pages to choose their own colors.... Google is a good example after doing a search, then change visited sites color, uncheck the allow pages button and then you can't see the search button and most of the options in the top right corner in google.

I am a little color blind, so can't differentiate blue and purple for links on visited sites...

thx

I think the problem is that many sites use background colors to create buttons, so you lose that when you override the page's colors.

Maybe you could use an add-on to fine-tune colors instead of Firefox's all-or-nothing setting. I found a couple extensions that say they can change page colors, but I haven't tried them myself:

For a truly custom approach to link colors, there are two general purpose ways to apply your own style rules to specific sites: the Stylish extension and a userContent.css files. You would need to set a preferred text and background color for visited and unvisited links so that you are guaranteed to be able to read the text.

Hope one of these fits the bill!

You can use the NoSquint extension to set font size (text/page zoom) and text color on web pages.
