How do I change the color of the text on my inactive tabs?

My computer glitched up and deleted the customizations in Firefox. I have restored the theme I was using, but the inactive tabs are back to unreadable black text on dark blue. I cannot find the Q/A I used before to change the text color. Help, please?

What was your earlier username? You can substitute it in the link to your profile:

If you saw it in someone else's thread, that wouldn't help...

What do you think about using a custom style rule to modify the text or background? By background I mean creating background tabs on the bar using, for example, the following style rule:

Custom style rules can be applied to Firefox's interface using either the Stylish extension or a userChrome.css file.

Thank you for the suggestion, jscher2000, but after installing it, I can't make heads or tails out of it.

This will restore many of the things the last upgrades took away.

What should happen is, after you install Stylish and restart to activate it, when you open the page for that style, you get a blue Install button. No?
