Changing webpage text colours in IEx 11

Q: Changing webpage text colours in IEx 11

How can the pale grey text displayed on many web pages be changed to black?  It lacks contrast on a less than white background and is hard on the eyes.
Help appreciated,
Thanks, John.

Preferred Solution: Changing webpage text colours in IEx 11

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Changing webpage text colours in IEx 11

The text colors are controlled by the web pages themselves, where the author has intentionally used pale grey text.

There may be an addon for IE that allows you to locally change the css style sheet to override the font colors. I don't use IE, but I don't think it includes that feature by default.
What I do on pages like that is I press CTRL-A to select all of the text, which sometimes changes the color of the text and the background of the lines to make it easier to read - obviously a very stop-gap solution.

Hi all, was directed here by Microsoft Community. Hope I've come to the right place
At my work we use Windows 7 professional but are working from servers. I think our setup is Workspace Manager.

Anyhow, we have no rights whatsoever to customize anything so that we all have the exact same setup. This is all set by the IT dept.  
Recently I got a new machine and since then my inactive and active title bars have gone weird. Don't really care about the colour however they are so dark you can't read the text.

This isn't apparent in any area of windows. Only in 2 of the programs I use and it isn't the title bars that are the problem, it's the selected and unselected rows. Our IT dept can't figure it out. It's not the programs because they don't have the facility
to customise.

So every morning I have to go to Personalize> Window Color > Advanced appearance Settings and change the Active & Inactive Title Bar colours which fixes it.  (IT have allowed me to access it!) But when I log back in the next
day it goes back to the stupid colours. It's driving me nuts.

It's not even the windows Default colours. Also if I log in to another computer it is not affected.

Does any one know how to fix this? Please!

When one tries to change Firefox fonts' colours unclicking "allow pages to choose their own colours" it triggers a general structure failure, as rupture of Gmail (impossible to use it), Google's black bar appearence, incomplete pages loading, etc. Recently, it costed to me an uninstalling (deleting everything) and a 'clean' installing of a completely new Firefox because either me or kind people who tried to help me, couldn't guess what has happend (because I didn't realize the concomitancy of the change in tools>content>colours with the beginning of failure, that was progressive). Now inmediately I realized the problem and restored back the mentioned setting and trouble disappeared. But, how is it possible that I cannot change colours at my leisure? Specially when Firefox doesn't have by default, any colur change for visited pages. Is it a Firefox bug? Many thanks and kind cheers.

I had to reinstall Firefox a few weeks ago. Ever since, there is often a box that flashes quickly in the background- esp with hotmail- that is a firefox can't find server box. But today, I was on a webpage and part of it was blocked by this box. Why is it always there?


A:Text Box blocking webpage

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at ads.partner2profit.com.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

(Part of this involves 2003SBS, but I figured the XP forum was the best place for this as all the workstations are XP Pro.)

My firm has a local .aspx website (that I did not create) which includes the following feature:
On one page, a user can "export" the results of a stored procedure to a user-defined text file (the page uses streamwriter to do this).

- Several months ago, this apparently stopped working for some of my workstations. Even though no errors are reported, the file remains in its previous state. I don't know of any changes that could have occurred back then to affec this.(I DO know that the code hasn't changed.)

- However, when the operation is run on the server (where the site/database/etc. reside) or on any number of "good" workstations, the file is properly written.

I thought it might be permissions issues, but everything looks in order...or perhaps communication/authentication issues the security tab in the "bad" workstations show nothing but success audits.

I am rather novice when it come to this environment, so help or hints as to what I should be looking for would be greatly appreciated!

A:Webpage Only Writes Text File on Some Workstations

It turned out to be the IE security setting "Include local directory when uploading files to a server". This setting is disabled by default.

The working PCs had the setting enabled for some reason. Adding the site as a "Trusted Site" also enables the setting, achieving the same result.

It is very frustrating and when this happens I go down to the right hand corner of the application and select 100%. Is this a zoom problem or just the fact it is resizing the pages because of the screen size being very small. Are there any updates or software needed to overcome this problem.

Hi!

It's hard to tell in the photo, but the progress bars are pink and the text is white.  The same thing happens in Windows.  Where background parts of a window are supposed to be white they display as pink, but gray or other colours are mostly OK, and text is OK.  But at some random times the entire screen is OK.
The M4300 had a BIOS update many years ago that was supposed to protect the Nvidia video controller from getting damaged.  For many years it remained OK.

Hey all, sometimes when I enter the TSG site my text size changes. One minute the text is the size I have it set to and then when I go to a different thread it will get larger. At times if I hit the refresh button it goes back to the right size and sometimes it doesnt. I ran ccleaner but it does not make any difference. I have tried firefox(3.6) in safe mode but no difference there. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this also. It is only the TSG site that this happens on.

There is a way to customize the display, but anything more than 150% is so large it overflows my wide-screen monitor. Surely there must be a choice between way too large and way too small, but I can't find it.
