how to change the background color of firefox menu!?

Like I was playing around with a windows 7 theme....and its a dark theme...therefore kind of screwing up my firefox....

I would like to make the text lighter like maybe gray???

How do you change the text from black to like light gray?

On the options page on the content tab it says colors I'm not sure if that helps or not maybe that will.

Hi, wonton, it appears you are running a themed version or a persona in FF. Switch back to the default theme, or persona, or try a different theme, or persona. All should be good, then.

Probably an incompatibility with your FF persona, or theme, and the Win 7 theme you chose.

I dont have a persona Its the theme only...and also when I change themes most of them are the same problem....but when I try the IE theme for Firefox it fixes it but I don't like the theme...Its IE! lol

Isn't there like a configuration file that I could change maybe??

Uploaded a full ver:



This is a pic of me using the IE theme which I REALLY HATE

Nope. Are you saying it's not a Win 7 theme you changed but an FF theme - or both?

Look for an update to the FF theme of your choice. As I mentioned, it might not be compatible with the Win 7 theme you've chosen

If I've missed something, please correct me.

Like I recently changed my windows 7 theme to the one that I found on DeviantArt. Than when I went back and open Firefox it changed...the menu is darker most likely due to the windows 7 theme...

I thought that maybe if I changed the Firefox default theme to another theme I could fix it but it looks like it doesn't fix it.

But your most likely right...I was afraid of that..

It's also not a big deal but would of course like to have the text a bit lighter for easier reading.

Does the dA theme affect any of your other programs similarly? If it doesn't, try a different FF theme until you find one you like that plays nice with your dA Win 7 theme.
