- by Firefox user 12812696, a month agoRated 4 out of 5I could be mistaken, but I think the "Form Border" option is only available via the options button in the address bar (popup panel). It's missing when accessing the settings through the addon manager. I think I'm using the latest version of the extension. My machine runs Firefox 56.0.2 64-bit on Windows 7 64-bit platform. The issue could be with my outdated version of Firefox - which I deliberately don't want to upgrade. Aside from that, this extension is absolutely awesome! Love the toggle on/off option.
Developer responseposted a month agoYou are right, "form border" is intentionally missing from the global options. The reason is because the feature is experimental and doesn't work as well as I'd like. But seeing how you find it useful, I'll add it to the global options for the next release.
- by Solar Scientist Frederick Ermlich, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5I trust this developer. He or she was thoughtful and communicated with users. Also, this is simple, robust work. It made text appear black instead of greyed out, like this page requires. Which is stupid. Therefore, I'd bet it's a smartphone stupidity thing.
It seems you have to click the icon on each page opened, which is fine. Firefox 71.0 64 bit.
- by andrewrask, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5Wonderful for old eyes. Dramatic increase in text darkening. Also can adjust font size, boldness, more within Firefox sourced websites. Much needed with current crop of default fine, light print operating systems.

- by Firefox user 15361627, 4 months agoRated 5 out of 5I sometimes browse or read on an e-ink tablet screen, which feels nicer for my eyes especially for long form reading. Unfortunately sometimes the font uses a lighter gray color and so is harder to read even if on a white background. That's where this extension helps. It makes the page text much easier to read by bolding it among other things. Very useful on a screen type where more contrast is welcome. Thanks!
- by perlancar, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Nice little add-on, but a bit limited. Can only target grey text and not less-contrast text of other colors. Does not deal with text that are too small, or link colors. I'd suggest the "Text Legibility" addon instead.
- by Firefox user 12450821, a year agoRated 4 out of 5Nice add-on except that the "Skip links", "Skip headers" options are broken as of Firefox 62? When enabled for all sites, it works but all headers and links turn black.
Developer responseposted a year agoAll good here. Try uninstalling and reinstalling, the app might malfunction if you have updated.
If the issue persists, stay tuned as I'll be pushing an update (1.3.3) that addresses an issue with "Skip links" soon.
- by EarthWindAndFirefox, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 55 Stars. This add-on is the best option in Firefox Quantum for correcting the flawed design of websites that feature barely visible grey text. An alternate add-on with the same objective exists, but it is quite buggy in post-57 Firefox.
The introduction of the blacklist feature in version 1.3.1 further cements Font Contrast as the best add-on of its kind. Thanks to the developer for the response to my previous review, in which I had requested this feature.
With regard to the comment by Joy, below:
The icon in the address bar can be hidden (right-click it and select appropriately). Thereafter, right-click the Firefox titlebar, select "Customize..." and drag the Font Contrast icon among your other add-ons. If you ever restart your Firefox with add-ons disabled, you'll have to redo the part about hiding the address bar icon, as doing so will restore the icon. Ultimately, though, what you want is easily done.
