    Difficulty in reading top bar


    The black bar under the penguin logo was never easy to read but now it seems to have got worse. The upper row of links is just about visible as it is in white, but the lower row has virtually disappeared. This is the row that contains the link to unanswered questions, which I like to browse. I now have to locate it blindly and very often I just get the forum rules.

    Could we have a more user-friendly colour scheme?

    I'm talking about Firefox and Opera. Firefox is bad, Opera is unreadable. It's OK in graphical Links, because Links doesn't respect the website's colour scheme.

    For Firefox, install the Stylish extension and add a new rule for www.linuxforums.org and add the following to it.

    Code:
    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
    
    @-moz-document domain("www.linuxforums.org") {
        .navbar a
        {
            color: #FFFFFF !important;
            font-size: 12px !important;
        }
    }
    You can do the same thing in Opera using user stylesheets.

    Thanks, Elija! I would never have thought of looking in in the styles menu. Opera turns out to have a high-contrast black-and-white style which is very reminiscent of the black-on-grey that Links uses. It isn't pretty but it's easy to read so I have switched to that.

    That still doesn't explain why the default colour scheme for the site is so murky.
