Firefox and Microsoft Explorer both show black backgrounds with white text. Background settings claim they are at defaults. I have updated Firefox, restarted Firefox, disabled add-ons (I wasn't using any), cleared history and cookies, unclicked hardware accelerator, updated Adobe FlashPlayer. I do not know if it is relevant but I just uninstalled Dell Fast Access facial recognition software. Has anybody encountered this problem and have any suggestions that I have not already tried? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Make sure that you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the Windows/Mac Accessibility settings.

Make sure that you allow pages to choose their own colors.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Colors : "Override the colors specified by the page with my selections above"

Try "Never" if the default "Only with High Contrast themes" isn't working.

This setting affects background images.
