Hi,
when you clicked on a link that link color normally change in Internet Explorer( to purple) and unvisited link color is blue...., but in Firefox when you clicked on a link you cand see a color difference...., cant we change this?,

[this is very important to me when i work in our company admin module, it has lot of links (otherwise i will click the same link so many times)]

Tools ¦ Options ¦ Content ¦ Colors...

That seems to set default link colors for visited and unvisited links.

Hi Bill,

but if i deselect "Allow pages to choose their own color, instead of my selections above" option, then i can see the two colors but it ugly to view web pages

That's because the sites often set those colors via CSS. You can't control that unless you control the site.

This can be done by setting a user style sheet. To do this, go to:

C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[xyz].default\chrome

Rename 'userContent-example.css' to 'userContent.css', then add the following lines to the file:

a { color: blue!important; }

a:visited { color: purple!important; }

Now all links for all websites should show blue links and purple visited links. If you only want to do this for one website, wrap the above in this:

@-moz-document url-prefix(http://www.example.com/) { }

Fx does usually change the link colour. Check that you haven't set the History to 0 days.
