High Contrast Black causing a porblem

deewJuly 8, 2011

I'm back with another problem. Oh, I hate Win 7!

I have High Contrast Black as my theme. I set Firefox to allow web pages to use their own colors, but when I go online, that command is overridden, and it's black there, too. I know I can use the left Shift + Alt + Print Screen to take it off, but then it takes it off offline, too, as well as the wallpaper I have set, and I have to go back and redo the theme all over again. I had HCB on my XP machine for years and never had a problem with it.

Is there a setting (besides the one I mentioned that isn't working) or a command of some sort that will allow me to have HCB offline and normal webpage colors online?

Have yo had any luck? I don't have any clue about this one!

No, no luck. I guess no one else knows, either. One thing I didn't mention was that HCB seems to disable my WOT, because it doesn't show up in HCB. That's a real problem, since I depend on it a lot. Oh, well.

Why don't you uninstall the theme and try something else.

I've tried other themes. I've had the HCB for years and really love it. I'll think about a change, though.

The option probably/possibly is not an option in Windows 7.
