You can use the NoSquint extension to set font sizes (text/page zoom) and text colors on web pages. D*NoSquint: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/nosquint/

NoSquint's hilight is light blue over yellow, unreadable. Argh.

As near as I've found, the colors in NoSquint are the same as Firefox. How do I get more colors (to modify the default background color)?

The lightest "cream" color is still too dark, as is the lightest green and lightest blue (both too dark).

In IE, there appears (at least in Windoze) a default color-set, but you can modify any of them and add them to the palette.

(I'm looking at Firefox on Mac Lion.)
