    tweak high contrast mode for browser?


    I use pale moon or Firefox, and its easy to miss invincible words on high contrast mode.

    Try the FT DeepDark theme in Firefox. I use this one on my Ubuntu laptop with Firefox and its great. Or you can use DuckDuckGo as a search machine and set up a dark theme. I'm betting your biggest problem is in the search box where with a dark theme the letters become off-white on a white field... I hate that too, with FT DeepDark that problem is taken care of.
