I'm getting super frustrated with how content is displayed on many websites
on my Ffox and Chrome browsers. So far as I know, I have the latest version
of both programs. Windows 7, Office 10.

The issue: Often text is displayed in light or grayed out colors. Also, in
many to most cases, text boxes and fields are no longer outlined. This
happens with surveys and with my gmail acct too.

I've tried changing my default font on Chrome and on my computer but it
hasn't helped. Today I also tried to change the text color on a website
page (see link for how things were being displayed), but the colors were
inherited from another section of the site, so the change wouldn't last.
And I don't know that much about html/site coding so didn't want to tweak
things too much.

Anyone have suggestions where the problem might be, or where I could
override all this gory coding? Is it possible that I'm not looking in the
right place? Windows 7, Office 10.

Also, for anyone out there who does site coding, I humbly beseech you to
use good contrasts with text, borders, backgrounds, etc.
