When search in Google and click links, those visited site links turn from blue to to purple. I want to change the purple to be grey for more easy identification of those visited sites, since fast distinguish between blue and purple is not efficient. Can I do this from FF, or is there any extension doing this? Thx.

Hi, why do the visited links color stay still in purple after I've changed the "Visited Links" to be other color like orange? Could anyone pls have a test to see if you could change it?

So now I found that it also affect all web pages from other sites. I just want to change the visited links color from Google like search engines. Any idea to limit to this?

I have problems seeing the default color used so I have change them. Here is what I have in my <b>userContent.css</b>
Code: Select all
/* strikethrough on visited links */
a:visited { color: #00CC00 !important;text-decoration: line-through !important; }

This change the visited color to light green and strike thru.

find the hex value for the color you want and change the value of this pref browser.visited_color
