Browser Background color on "New Tab" selections

more options

My background color is black, even though I have it set to white under "fonts and colors". Text is set to black, and background is set to white. But the background is actually black. I don't know why it is black when it is set to be white. Thanks for any help.

In your Firefox Settings/Extensions, check if you're running the 'Firefox Color' extension. If so Disable it. Also check Firefox Settings/Themes and Enable an appropriate theme.
