    Firefox and High Contrast


    Hey guys
    I recently started using customized high contrast themes for Windows 8
    I have a lil problem though, and I cannot seem to fix it
    Firefox is my preferred choice for browsing, problem is, it's too dark. It adapted to the high contrast theme, and I cannot seem* to let websites display their original colors
    Is there a way to fix this? An addon? Anything?

    Why don't you look-up and find a theme for FF that you like ?

    Menu>>Tools>>Options>>Content Tab>>Colors>>Allow Pages To Choose

    I use a high contrast theme and Pale Moon browser, although I don't allow pages to choose. I can and it works on my PC.

    Try in FF Menu->Settings->Content->Colors->Replace colors, specify the page to the selected color above me: Never

    Don't know if this will help but you can try the Classic Theme Restorer extension.
    It has color settings.
