Windows 7: Change read, or unread, URL colour

26 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Change read, or unread, URL colour

Often I struggle to see whether I have already read a link. Why are we restricted to blue and near purple colours?

Hi, openup firefox >> tools >> settings >> content >> colors and select your colors
now under tools >> settings >> content >> advanced uncheck allow sites to use their font... (I'm using non-english firefox so I don't know real path on english...)

that's it, you now have your own colors and fonts which may be changed at any time
