There is insufficient contrast on your extensions website. The titles and some of the text just fade into the background. http://adblock.mozdev.org/ I feel lots of eye strain looking at it. This other extension is easy on the eyes. http://dictionarysearch.mozdev.org/. This forum is also easy to read.

Thanks for the help.

The best extension that worked for me is:

Web Developer: link

I didn't realize these toolbars existed. Anyways I was able to customize it to the point that I could almost make a button to quickly turn on and off pictures. It works pretty good. But I would rather have this built in ... just seems to be common sense to me. Anyways...

thanks again for the help everyone.



I was able to solve my problem using the save extension that Jer used. I select on the Disable and "Disable Page Colors". This applies to all Tabs at once. When I am done, I just switch it back and then I hide the toobar, until the next time I find a difficult to read page.

I solved it myself, but other people are not going to find there way to my post to get my fix, so if you can improve the color scheme through modifying your CSS that would be excellent for the visually challenged.

i agree - color scheme for site is really sucks.

looks like pre-beta or disabled page for me.

1. put big install link, name - latest stable version
2. do not name product as development
development == pre alpha and it is very confusing
i found this product pretty stable, i use it on several linux and xp system

conclusion: site design and "development v2" - scares most of potentional users away

I use a bookmarklet when I encounter a poorly contrasted site.

Code:

javascript:(function(){var newSS, styles='* { background: white ! important; color: black !important } :link, :link * { color: #0000EE !important } :visited, :visited * { color: #551A8B !important }'; if(document.createStyleSheet) { document.createStyleSheet(javascript:'+styles+'); } else { newSS=document.createElement('link'); newSS.rel='stylesheet'; newSS.href='data:text/css,'+escape(styles); document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0].appendChild(newSS); } })();

Thanks for posting the bookmarklet. Too bad it has to exist to overcome web site designers who design web pages for their individual computer, as opposed to the mass of users out there for whom the page is intended...

You can also view the text of the site in higher contrast by visiting it in Lynx, but I think that rather undermines the whole point.

Yeah, the website really needs to be updated. It will probably happen together with the release of Adblock 0.6.

yeah, i feel sorry for a nearly blind person who looks at that webpage, or someone who has a 16 color display, as the text would probably appear white LOL
