Unable to change color for visited websites

erride Color of Visited Websites since version 69.0.3

Since after version Firefox 69.0.3 32bit, the visited website color can not be altered no matter what variation I try within General - Language and Appears - Color. Background and Text work fine though. I can change the color on the color screen but it has no effect when I have visited websites after a Google search. I pick the color via the rainbox color screen in the Color section.

Being able to change the color for visited website to Red would make my life easier while doing searches to avoid repeatedly going to the same websites previously looked at. Just for your info, I change the colors of the Background to Black, Text to White, and non-visited website to white. I have low vision and it makes it easier on my eyes.

I have this problem on my old Windows 7 with every version upward. I just got a brand new Dell with Windows 10 and it has the exact same problem with both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of 84.0.2. Hence, this is why I have not bothered submitting this issue until I got my Windows 10 unit.

On the Tools - Options - General - Language and Appearance - Color, I have tried both Always Override and Use only with Hight Contrast Theme. Checking and un-checking Use System color and Underline weblinks had no effect. None of these variations had no effect.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

The problem reamined while in Safe Mode(disable Add-in from Help, then restarted in Safe Mode). Did this on the new Dell with Windows 10 - have not installed anything on this system yet other than Firefox and Java Runtime.

I tried NS+ or NoSquit Plus. From its initial appearance it would seem to be a very versatile tool that included the ability to change colors, including for visited sites. I tried it to make the necessary changes within its global setttings. Though I could select colors it had no effect even after saving the change and restarting Firefox.

I did some reserach on this addon by going through its reviews. It would appear when the addon came out it had high review and it worked but for the past two years virtually everyone said it does not work.

It appears the zoom portion works but the color portion does not work anymore wtih 84.0.2.. I even tried Alway Override colors within Firefox so this would override Windows but to no avail.
