Chosen solution

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.


Make sure you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the Windows/Mac Accessibility settings.

Make sure you allow pages to choose their own colors.

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Colors: "Override the colors specified by the page with my selections above"

Try "Never" if the default "Only with High Contrast themes" isn't working.

This version was automatically installed with the Linux OP.

I have made sure that the above preferences are setup on the installed Firefox-Version, but does not solve the problem! This problem does not occur if I choose the Admin-Account, only on every standard account? I'm not sure that down-loading Firefox from the Mozilla-Site will be installed to replace this version??

Same problems with Thunderbird-Mail (see attached image)! Ricky

Problem solved! Was actually a OP-system preferences problem within the themes selection. Thanks anyway.
