How to darken text under webpage pics so I can read it?
Similar to the person that couldn't read the gray drop-down menu, I have the problem with the absolute lightest possible gray text under all webpage pictures on all websites. Is there anyway to manage "all"-webpage texts under pictures & the like? I'm not able to attach an example (image.jpg) for some reason... But thanks in advance for any help you can lend in this instance-

Hello, Can anyone tell me how I can darken the writing in things like dialog boxes or when filling in various web page requests. For example when you come across a website that asks you to fill in your e-mail address, passwords, usernames, etc.. The trouble I'm having is that there are have been many times when I can't even see the boxes where they want you to fill in the information. There have been times when I couldn't even see where to type the information they're asking for. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Hi Scorpio54, it sounds similar to one of your older threads: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1203640
Could you start a new question with your current system details? Also, if you use a "high contrast" Windows theme, that can have a large effect on how Firefox displays web pages. You can limit OS adaption by setting Firefox to strictly follow page colors. It's not perfect, but might be an improvement. You do that on the Preferences page:
- Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
- Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options
- Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
- Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it
In the search box at the top of the page, type color and Firefox should filter the page down so you can easily find the "Colors" button. Go ahead and click that.
Try changing this setting:
"Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above"
Below that, it usually says
"Only with High Contrast themes"
Click that and change the setting to
then click OK to finish the change.
Does that help at all?
Here's a screenshot of that part of the Colors dialog as it appears on Windows 10:
Hi Sjane, I'm sorry to see you didn't get a solution back in May. There isn't a setting that would be so pinpoint as to affect only captions under photos. However, are they links? It might be possible to use an add-on that overrides annoying link colors in that case.
Hello jscher2000. I've tried what you have suggested and I'm trying to find a website where they ask me for the information I talked about so that i could take a screenshot and send it to you. In the meantime thank you very much for taking the time to reply.
