    So I have an add-on in FF called 'AnyColor' that allows you to change the background and text color of drop down menus. FF stopped supporting this add-on awhile ago but I found a fixed version that works w/FF 8.0.1.

    The hubs has a separate acct. for his iTunes library and while updating his ipod over the weekend, FF upgraded to 9.0.1 . . because he never changed the settings for updates. The FF upgrade disabled the AnyColor add-on. :mad:

    After trying different fixes I gave up and downgraded FF to 8.0.1 (and yes, I changed all the update settings. :rolleyes:)

    AnyColor now works again . . except. When I bookmark something, I click on 'bookmarks' and then 'bookmark this page' and the popup window that shows up? It's a white background (which is fine) BUT the letter is now white instead of black and I can't read what it says!

    Does anyone know how to change the color of text in that pop up window back to black? Point me in the right direction? Halp!!

    Ringel05 . . .you're computer savvy . . any ideas?

    I don't know if you are still looking, but there is an add on called Colorlicious that does pretty much the same thing, and it works with the latest Firefox updates.

    Hey, thanks for this QW! I'm still running FF 8.0.1 so I can use the anycolor addon but am going to grab my daughters laptop and install it on there. If it does what I need I'll update FF ... I don't even know what version is out now probably 12 something. lol Thanks again!

    The new release of Firefox 22.0 apparently is set to 800x600 resolution...

    ... it doesn't match the resolution set within Windows...

    ... how do I set it to 1024x768...

    ... so I don't have to do all the left to right scrolling?
    :confused:

    Resize the window, resolution is controlled by the computer, not the browser.

    Yeah, I finally figured out that the text in the drop down menus pulls its color from the anycolor text color I have set. When I originally wrote this post I had white text, which of course showed up on the white background of the drop down menu, thus causing my 'white on white' problem. I have since changed my FF 'skin' and text color and in the process inadvertently discovered the cause of and solution to my problem!

    For those having issues with Firefox 22.0...

    ... try this link on the resolution size of the browser...

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/962990?page=2

    Ya kinda have to play with it some...

    ... I'm using a factor of .97 on a resolution of 1024x768 in WinXP...

    ... and TimesNewRoman font set at 16 in the browser under Tools>Options>Content
