Will not show web page on windows high contrast

Hi, Am running Windows 7 64bit my problem is as follows. I normally run Windows in high contrast mode and would prefer all web sites to be on the dark side. Occasionally I need to be able to see a web page as its designers intended it to be.

So I want to have the text white and background black and then the ability to toggle between that and the web page's own colour scheme. Thought I'd found exactly what I needed in the add-on "Toggle Document Colors 1.0"

Am presuming it toggles the status of the "Allow pages to choose their own colours..." tick box. This setting seems to get lost when FF closes. Even if I set the tick box myself and then close FF it is gone when I reopen FF. If the box is ticked and a page refreshed it still does not show web page colours ?

Without any addons at all after a reset and only using the colours dialog I cannot get it to behave. If you start in Windows white mode (normal) things are better even after FF close. Change to Windows black mode (high contrast) things start off ok then after you close FF it will not work

If there is a solution I would love to know it. Will settle for a workaround. Considered using old version of FF, but this is not really a good idea. Really don't want to go back to IE

in hope ... Bob
