Greetings In version 73.0 of Feb 11, 2020 Mozilla introduced a “readability backplate” solution which places a block of background color between the text and background image. As a Low vision individual I do rely on Windows High contrast black theme to remove any bright color blocks from the screen background. Unfortunately the new Readability backplate feature brings these color blocks back which actually make websites harder for me to read. For example buttons, image blocks with or without wording now appear in white background which is precisely what I need to move away from. Can I disable the readability backplate or disable background images? In the mean time how do I go back to version 72.# please? Thank you

Hello,

I'm using Firefox browser desktop ver 73.0 for Ubuntu 18.04 canonical 1.0. It was working great for many months. Now suddenly on all websites selection boxes and text are inverted. For example text has a white box around it. I went through all the settings in Firefox and nothing effects the problem. I can use Chrome fine but I hate it. Thank you

High-contrast theme not working properly with Firefox 73

I updated Firefox to version 73.0.1 and Windows 10 Pro to version 1909 at last week. Good news is that update fixed several accessibility issues with Firefox's interface wtih add-ons (i.e. invisible buttons became visible). Bad news is that key functionality in webpages broke down.

Attached are example screenshots from Google main page and Foreca weather service's 10 day forecast for Jyväskylä, Finland. In Google's case "Google Search" and "I'm Feeling Lucky" text is white on black as should be but buttons also have thick white borders around them (not present before update), which makes reading text difficult. In Foreca's site its propably something similar but there is so much white colour involved that I'm unable to read anything.

Can I somehow fix this issue myself? If not where should I report this issue?

Google: https://www.google.fi/ Foreca: https://www.foreca.fi/Finland/Jyvaskyla/10vrk

P.S. On page used for sending this message "Post Question" button has similar thick border but in light blue instead of white. Much easier to read than in posted example cases.

When I click on a tab the pop-up background appears opaque against the webpage making it invisible to see in High Contrast Mode. The previous update displayed black bars across web pages in High Contrast which was corrected in about:config.

With the new firefox browser update they included color functionality that was supposed to "help" those of us with color vision issues. It doesn't help at all, in fact it actually makes it even harder for some of us to utilize the browser. Now with web sites like yahoo email and ebay, just to name two, there are color accents that are forced upon the user. I utilize a high contrast setting on my computer with the black background and white text. The web browser now ignores that and visiting some web sites it is like looking into a bright flashlight. Is there any way to disable or turn off the new color functionality?

I have also found that trying to use browser themes no longer stays. What I mean is that after setting a "theme" it works until you open a new tab or window and then it goes back to the firefox defaul theme. When checking the add on theme it still says that the theme I wanted is selected and enabled but in truth it isn't.

The first screen shot shows what the theme should be but you can see that it is not working and that happens with any selected and enabled theme.

The second screen shot shows the bright blue bar at the top of the yahoo email page. It used to be black until the 2-11-2020 update of firefox.

The third screen shot is of an ebay page after the update.

I know it seems trivial to those of you with normal color vision but when you cannot work with the color nor change what you are seeing, it is more than just frustrating.

""Many users with low vision rely on Windows' High Contrast Mode to make websites more readable. Traditionally, to increase the readability of text, Firefox has disabled background images when High Contrast Mode is enabled. With today’s release of Firefox 73, we introduce a “readability backplate” solution which places a block of background color between the text and background image. Now, websites in High Contrast Mode are more readable without disabling background images."

This "upgrade" has made unreadable many webpages. I have - for years - used a high-contrast screen color set-up: black background with white letters. I used to be able to control the on-screen colors of visited and unvisited links. That control went away a few "upgrades" ago.

This most recent upgrade, make all e-Bay pages unreadable: there are huge white areas, which used to be black.

How do I undo this "upgrade", so that Firefox no longer wrecks my screen-color set-up.

Note: I will not - under any circumstances - address a problem created by an upgrade, by changing my computer's settings, e.g., by editing registry files, etc.
