CDA230: "The contrast on some elements is so bad that the site is very diffiicult to use"
Not necessarily a big deal to everyone, but for those of us that have tired old eyes, this is definitely an annoyance. I recall somewhere there was an FF add on that would allow for different colors in content . . . but then maybe I'm just dreaming it. Or maybe it was Stylish lines of code.

Will poke around for it, and if such an animal exists I will post a link to it.

FF styles

Post by c۞g » Tue Jun 15, 2010 3:18 am

Two that come to mind are:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2108/

and not as popular but best for the geeks:
http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html

The first link was just to the Stylish add on, which I already have. I was looking for the particular style that would allow me to change the appearance of the content, specifically the background color of the page and some of the contrasting colors on elements of the page.

The second link is to the Mozilla page on userChrome.css and userContent.css. As I recall, it's the userChrome file that allows changes to Firefox, and the userContent file is the one that would be used to change content (pretty intuitive naming, I guess).

As I understand it, Stylish is basically scripts that modify userChrome or userContent.

For example, I have Stylish scripts that make my "Tools" label in my main menu red and bold and my "Bookmarks" label in the main menu blue and bold (and both larger fonts):
  1. @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gateke ... s.only.xul);



    #tools-menu {
    font-weight: bold !important;
    font-size: 16px !important;
    color: red !important; }
  2. @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gateke ... s.only.xul);



    #bookmarksMenu {
    font-weight: bold !important;
    font-size: 16px !important;
    color: blue !important; }
Those would be css modifications that change the look of Firefox

I also have a Stylish script that marks links as visited:
  1. @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

    a:visited:before {
    content:"\2297\00A0";
    color: red;
    }
That is a modification to the content. (BTW, that comes in very handy for someone like me who has trouble seeing a lighter link after visiting . . . this script places Unicode symbol 2297 next to the link).

I guess I could come up with a style that would do what I want, but it seems it would be that way for every site I visit. I just want to change stuff for this forum. Guess if I messed around with Stylish, I could do that. But I'm lazy.

Anyway, I recall something that would allow me to just toggle colors and layout on a specific page without having to rely on manual .css mods. As I said, maybe I was just dreaming.

Please support your statement with more details.

Saying that contrasts between elements are bad won't help..but pointing out the location of them will help :)

Buttons on home page

Post by Guest » Tue Jun 15, 2010 4:56 am

@ Creastery,

Right now, what immediately comes to mind is buttons on the home page, particularly the white-on-green.

And, No, I don't spend a lot of time on the home page anyway . . . it's other areas that I can't specify right now.

BUT, since there are other places which are particular to me, I'd rather be able to modify them myself (which is why I'm looking for a way to do that) than have Sami do a modification that I'm sure will in turn have other people complaining about contrast.

(I mean, what's a good contrast to you . . . and as I recall you're a younger fellow with good eyes . . . may NOT be a good contrast to me with my tired old eyes, and vice-versa. Which again, is why I'm looking for a way to modify the layout myself, not universally)

This should be fixed now. I hope anything else didn't break. ;)

Found a little display bug.

Post by TheAnon » Tue Jun 15, 2010 6:31 am

I am using FF 3.6.3 but it is in IE8 as well.
My total rated sites and total comments isnt really good in line

If you follow the link you see that the number 283,680 isn't in the same height as "Meine Einträge"
