Windows 7: Change font color of visited search sites

31 Aug 2018   #1

Win 7 Ultimate
Change font color of visited search sites

Big problem no one seems able to fix. Using Firefox 61 and Google for search. I want to change the font color of visited search sites.

Set up goes fine: Options> General>Font & Colors>Colors... I change "visited links" color to dark yellow. MUST change Override to "Always." Success (see attachment 1). But it changes the look and format of ALL sites, too (see attachments 2 & 3).

Some online advice is to make css changes. I'm not familiar with how to do that and I don't know if it will actually work. Suggestions please.

you used to be able to add a line to userChrome.css that looks like this:
a:visited {color: pink;}
and it would change visited links to pink. But I think starting with v57 that no longer works.
So I tried exactly what you did and got what you got.
Then I tried adding the below add-on, and then doing what you did again (tools > options > colors, etc) and that seemed to work correctly

There are lots of online suggestions on how to change the colors, but none deal with the fact that backgrounds, etc also change. Some talk about CSS but I'm not familiar with programming. Using Firefox 60.0.2 64 bit. Suggestions?
