How do I get Firefox search results to change link colors after viewing?

All other browsers I've used for searches always change the color or hue of the visited link. I just downloaded the latest Firefox version, but it doesn't do that either.

I forced Firefox to use purple as the visited link colour by adding code to my userContent.css file in the profile directory, subdirectory chrome.

a:visited {color:#990099 !important;}

You can change the number to change the colour.

-> Tap ALT key or press F10 to show the Menu Bar

-> go to Tools Menu -> Options -> Content -> click Colors... button -> place Checkmark on Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above -> click OK

If it doesn't work, try this:

-> go to Tools Menu -> Options -> Content -> click Colors... button -> change the Visited Links color to whatever color you want -> click OK

Check and tell if its working.

mha007: I have purple checked to show on visited pages, but a box is checked that changes that. When I uncheck this box "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above", it changes the background colors of different websites, too, which I don't want. My Yahoo is set for blue background and different heading colors, for example, and the unchecked box causes it goes to a stark white background with blue headlines, etc. Is there any way around this?

Thanks.

finitarry: When you put that code in for purple visited pages, did you also have the box checked "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above" under the Colors tab?

Colors...Visited Links...was already set to purple with box "Allow pages to choose....." checked as I mentioned in my earlier reply. But I changed the Visited Links to Light Blue and unchecked and rechecked the box to "Allow pages to choose....". It does not work. It's either or for some reason.

I do allow pages to use their own colours, but if there are some colours that I want to change, I can do that with userContent.css.

Make sure that the History is enabled: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Remember my browsing history

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode.

You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"

  • To see all History and Cookie settings, choose: Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
  • Deselect: [ ] "Permanent Private Browsing mode"

I really appreciate everything that you all have done in an effort to try to help solve this problem.

I just downloaded this evil V 5 the other day, I have no Add-Ons, I have History checked to clear when browser closes, I never have used Private Browsing and I run CCleaner daily. There should be no problems with Cache or Cookies as they're removed daily. And I'm weary of the effort just to try to solve this problem. So weary, in fact, that I GIVE UP. I may just go back to Chrome and put up with Google collecting my private information even though that is unacceptable business practice in my opinion.

Thanks again. Shirley

-> Close Firefox (ALT + F -> Exit)

Start Firefox in Safe Mode by Holding down SHIFT key while starting Firefox

As an alternative method, select "Windows Start Menu -> Run" or press Win + R key combination and enter one of the following in the Windows Run box:

For Firefox, one of these:

      firefox -safe-mode
      "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode 

-> Firefox Safe Mode window will appear -> select Reset All User Preferences to Firefox Defaults and click Make Changes and Restart

Check and tell if its working.
