I have serious glare problems with my CRT monitor that cannot be
remedied by any of the usual fixes - I have tried adjusting the
contrast, brightness and gamma until the cows come home and nothing has
changed. I have found that if I set the text color to RGB (120,120,120)
- basically a light grey - the problem pretty much goes away, since
glare problems with CRT monitors are dependent on the contrast between
type and background, in part.
Bottom line: I tried to adjust color in Firefox preferences for text
color. I turned it to the grey above. But the only way to make it work
was to uncheck "let webpages override my settings". This somehow screwed
up everything horribly - many backgrounds simply refused to load at all,
some page functions stopped working, etc.
I am looking for an extension that will allow me to say, highlight some
text (the text I am trying to read) and turn it all to the grey that I want.
Do you know of any?
Sorry, Firefox newsgroups are all down now.
