Can't change the background colour back to white

Basically, a year or so ago I change my background colour to blue. Like the colour you get with the blank page when you open a new tab. I've spend hours trying to change it back with no luck at all, and I've looked almost literally everywhere.

This is one possible solution if you haven't tried it already:

1. Go to: Tools > Options > Content

2. Under 'Fonts & Colours' click the 'Colours...' button

3. Next to where it says 'Background:' click the button with the coloured box inside it

4. Select the colour that you want the backgrounds to appear as (e.g white)

5. Click 'OK' and 'OK' again

Your problem should now be fixed. If your browser doesn't have these options then you will need to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox.

I am unsure of where you have looked or have tried at this point. However, the following should be of help.

Click on firefox in top left>options. in the options menu select the content tab, and locate the colors and fonts. Next, locate color dialog further explained below.

Colors Dialog

Text and Background: Here you can change the default text and background color to be used on web pages that haven't specified that information. Click on the color samples to select colors.

Use system colors Check this option to use the colors defined in your operating system settings instead of the colors specified above.

Link Colors: Here you can change the default colors for Web links. Click on the color samples to select colors.

Underline links: By default, links are underlined on web pages. Uncheck this option to disable this. Note that many sites specify their own styling rules and this option has no effect on those sites.

Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above: By default, Firefox uses the colors specified by the web page author. Disabling this option will force all sites to use your default colors instead.


Settings for web content, pop-ups, fonts, and languages

To strongwind- I tried everything, including going to Tools, and there is no options button under my Tools.

To Dbellca82- I tried going there too, there isn't Options under Firefox.

I have some screenshots, in case you guys think I'm going to the wrong places.
