Firefox uses system High Contrast text color for websites

Hello, Firefox seems to be using my system's High Contrast text color to render websites. My High Contrast text color is a light grey, to contrast with a dark system background. However, many webpages on the internet have light backgrounds, so when Firefox uses this color, I can't read the text. I already have Options>Language and Appearance>Colors>Override the colors specified by the page set to "Never." This also occurs in a brand new profile with 0 extensions or addons in Safe Mode. I just want Firefox to display webpages "normally", i.e. with black text, without regard to the current system colors.

To reproduce: - Turn on High Contrast - Visit a site such as http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/ppois.html - Change system High Contrast text color to any color you wish - Notice that the text on the page also changes to the same color, even with the setting on "Never"

Is there any way I can get Firefox to ignore the system's text color settings? Chrome renders the webpage just fine with black text.

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there, I have a new computer working under Ubuntu. When using Firefox I often have a problem with the characters which appear when I open webpages or even read pdf documents. This isssue does not seem to happen in a very consistent way (some websites will appear correctly one day and incorrectly another day). I include below a screenshot as example. The problem does not seem to appear with chromium... If you have any idea about how to fix this I would be very grateful Thanks Michael

I was watching YouTube today and i realized a flashing white line in the bottom left of my screen. then i went to a few different website and i saw the same thing, although the position was different. I realized that the position of the line depended on where you clicked and only on lines of text. i haven't downloaded any add on in a wile and i have only just saw this today.

Any time I attempt to go to www.nfl.com (or any of the domain's pages), it will for a split second attemtp to go, but then quit trying as if it is blocked. I have disabled every single add-on in the browser, and it is still blocking the site. This is the only known site that is being blocked, and this site does NOT get blocked using Google Chrome.

What is likely to be causing this issue?

For a long time now I had been able to access this webpage using Firefox: https://weather.bom.gov.au/location/r3gx0kn-alexandria . In recent months the browser does not even recognise anything has been typed in. On the other hand, Bing (my back-up browser) does take me to the site. It came to Firefox for a day or two earlier this month but is gone again. Can anyone suggest a fix please?

Hi, I use duckduckgo as my search engine and I have set the start page as that as well. This is gonna be tricky to explain so bear with me. When the start/home page comes up I have to press the "plus" to open a new tap and on that page I´ve got all the most visited pages.

Very grateful for any help.

When I visit the weekly newspaper http://www.mambalamtimes.in/ the PDF opens in new tab without any issues with Google Chrome. However Firefox is trying get this PDF downloaded to the local disk instead of opening in the new tab.

I guess Firefox also has an inbuilt PDF reader so not sure why it is preferring the file to be downloaded over displaying and rendering the same inline...

A chaque fois que je fais une recherche avec un seul mot dans la barre de recherche située en haut du navigateur, un message apparaît : "voulez-vous vous rendre sur" (voir image jointe).

Il semble que c'est un problème qui vient du serveur DNS. Seulement, je ne sais pas comment le configurer pour que ce message n’apparaisse plus.
