Question

Windows 8/Firefox 19/Dell Laptop Any way to decouple High contrast from my color settings?

I find the following note on Firefox help pages:

"Firefox automatically detects if you are using a High Contrast theme and displays everything in your high contrast color scheme. This overrides all other other browser or web page settings, and it affects the Firefox interface itself (all menus, windows, and dialog boxes) and the content of any web page you visit."

Is there any way of decoupling this behavior? It makes some of the web pages I read unusable. The fact is, Win8 seems much worse than Win7 in allowing the user to have flexibility in their color selections. For my color blindness, I cannot seem to find a workable standard color scheme. The high contrast is no great shakes, but is the best of the lot. The coupling of FF display to high contrast seems particularly odd since FF seems to have all the tools necessary to allow a user to configure their pages that way anyway.

Any pointers people can provide would be great - even pointers on how to get to Win7 style color personalizations which I cannot find - largely because I cannot read the screen easily!

Thanks.
