Visited links no longer change color to show they have been read since upgrading to Firefox 4
After visiting links, the text stays blue instead of turning purple to show it was visited such as when visiting Google News links, even though color options for unvisited are set to blue and visited are set to purple in the color options menu.

Hi at all, I have delete all cookies in Tools -> Options -> Privacy (tab) -> remove individual cookies -> Remove All Cookies
or you make a new profile (on the desktop Windows Logo+R -> firefox.exe -ProfileManager)
and it should work

I had this problem (or similar). Links changed color as I clicked them, but if I reload the page with all the links, they're all back to "unclicked". None of the above fixes helped.
Things started behaving properly after I disabled all add-ons (and removed ones that were outdated), then re-enabled them one at a time. I can't get the problem to reoccur, so I don't know exactly what add-on was causing it.
