- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17030795, 9 hours agoVery useful addon. Also for people with Achromatopsia
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 13404543, 23 days agoIf I select blacklist, it resets zoom level. So I adjust zoom level, and it deselects blacklist. Can't really change anything at all.
- Rated 5 out of 5by mmmel4real, 3 months agoWorks great if not using an extension to make websites darker. It doesn't really change the contrast of light text on dark backgrounds. (I played with all the options.) I don't think this is the fault of this extension though because the other extension takes over all styling. So no stars deducted.
I like the option to increase the text size too. It adds the missing toolbar icon that Firefox refuses to give us for toggling custom font size.
Text looks a lot better in pages with lighter backgrounds and black text. I also love all the great options for getting things just right, and I love that the changes can be customized for each website, or use blacklist mode.
- Rated 5 out of 5by NikiRandom, 5 months agoOnly just installed this but it seems very good. Simple and effective.
My only minor criticism so far is that the icon is, ironically, pretty much invisible in most of the FF themes that I have.
Oh, and it doesn't seem to work on Facebook?

- Rated 5 out of 5by Ronald McDonald, a year agoThis add-on basically applies a high-contrast theme to site fonts, getting rid of the boring gray text that so many sites are filled with (which I only realized when I started using this). It works perfectly and you can easily turn it off and on for different pages. You can also whitelist or blacklist sites so that sites you visit regularly look good with no fiddling required. There are plenty of settings to mess with though if you want. On default settings it's actually pretty smart about where it applies the contrast fix--it doesn't blacken links or text that's supposed to be colorful, and it has made everything easier to read for me so far. You might think it would look janky but actually, everything looks cooler when the text has some weight and doesn't blend in with the background. It's a subtle "digital" aesthetic. Perfect add-on.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Barry, a year agoWorks well, except for sites which abuse the !important tag in their css. For example
the reviews on www.wilko.com. It's littered with !important tags. I was able to temporarilly make the pale grey text black by deleting one "!important" from a tag in the Firefox console, thus proving the point. Perhaps there's a way to override these evil tags in the addon?

- Rated 5 out of 5by Kim Aku, 2 years agoThe most useful extension I have ever used. Saves constant zooming in and out of web pages to read small faint fonts. Wonderfully customisabe, easy to use and light on resources. Many thanks to very capable dev.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Pierre, 2 years agoIt's challenging reading grey font on a white background, and this is the best solution I've found so far. Looking forward to testing it out thoroughly. Curiously, the only page it hasn't worked on so far is the mozilla add ons page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/font-contrast-fix). Perhaps I'm doing something wrong?
- Rated 5 out of 5by Crumb, 3 years agoThis addon makes reading much easier, I appreciate it. A small improvement would be welcome: when activated, it does not affect the text of unfolded comments in livejournal.
