A zillion stars for wonderful Add-On!
- by Firefox user 14175405, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I Love the developer who just's wants a bowl of soup. And some to talk too.... Once I figured it out on Chrome I cam here to get it for my Firefox! oh yeah babbyyy!
- by elaine, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5After installation I configured settings but can't find the control after making web search results page text too dark. How can I reach settings for add on again?
- by Firefox user 13808075, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I installed this on my windows 10 computer, and my android tablet.
It works great on both, and now I can read everything, without screwing my eyes up!
- by Firefox user 13527254, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thank you for your efforts with this nice extension. I am using it every day.
I found at least one site where the extension's adjustment of text contrast makes things worse though. https://www.torontopearson.com/en/flights/schedules/ The text "departures", "arrivals" etc are originally light coloured on dark background, but the extension makes the text colour dark and practically invisible. Maybe you can have a look at that specific case and improve your code?
- by Marius, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I like very much to use your Legibility add on, but I have a hard time trying to find out how to use it.
Please give instructions on how to use it, in clear easy to understand words.
Still I commend you for your good heart to have produced this add on.
Thanks a lot.
- by Firefox user 13209425, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Love this! Stumbled on it while prepping FF for 11/14/17 57 release. For the eyeball impaired (sure there's a better term...) it works like a charm. Not only the physical size of the characters, but 2 important factors. Contrast (that horrid grey stuff!) and the edge highlight. Latter is akin to the TrueType Font adjustment in Windows....sharpens the edges so characters appear more clean cut. The author can explain better, I just know what I see and like.
This is a true case of WYSIWYG! Make it your own!
- by TomAlex64, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5The gray text fetish is driving me nuts. This add-on is fast and generally effective. I have it set to 86 Minimum, 100 Maximum and 100 Edge. Some web pages are less readable with the settings and it that case you simply disable the add-on. I do not understand why someone else feels compelled to determine what constitutes readability for me, without any knowledge of my hardware or software or my visual acuity. This is a Godsend for me.
- by aperice, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5It would be good to have a blacklist, to disable it on some sites.
Maybe add an option so that only pure gray text is changed, so that coloured text is not altered.
There is also the dilemma of dark backgrounds. Ideally lighter than 50% text should be lightened, but how do you know what the background is?
What I like about the add-on is it keeps things fairly simple.
I see it needs a restart to take effect, but this is not made clear, so people may think it doesn't work.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoThe tension is between simplicity and flexibility. A blacklist could work as a compromise between saving settings for each site and nothing.
Contrast to dark backgrounds is a real problem. There are ways to guess the background color, none of them fully reliable. I keep wishing that someday browsers will expose the computed background.
I did not know that a restart is required. Will see if anything can be done.
