All the color has gone out of my browser! (Background color & graphics) Help!

Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.

Did you check the other (Windows) causes for this issue?

See:


Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

I think I finally may have solved the mystery...Windows FINALLY brought up a message saying I need to enlarge the max. size of my registry...we'll see if it works...

Apparently it was because I had used Magnifier the other day to try to make something out on a picture...thanks!

( Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Accessibility -> Display -> uncheck "Use High Contrast")

THANKS, THANKS, AND THANKS AGAIN!!! I have spent the last 2 months trying to figure out what the heck was going on with my computer. Well, this step helped to solve my issue (uncheck high contrast). What a relief! Did I say thanks? LOL
