Windows 10: Webpage Font Colors - Not Dark Enough

    Webpage Font Colors - Not Dark Enough

    2017 BMW ALPINA B7 Review & Ratings | Edmunds

    Would this be normal, hardware or just a software issue? I went on line to a random site on Edge, Internet Explorer, and Firefox, they all are the same issue. Can it be adjusted on the system or would it be a theme I am using? I have tried a new theme I downloaded online, the same. I am leaning more towards the hardware.

    Grayed fonts on white background is hard on the eyes. Please see attached desktop screen shot.

    In Edge and IE the web address seems to be grey for all but the '' bit, but if you need to read it the whole address turns dark when you hover your mouse pointer over it. Firefox is slightly different, instead of turning dark the address is displayed in a popup when you hover over it. This seems to be by design - I doubt if there's a setting to change this behaviour.

    For the content of the page itself, the font color is specified by the site. In IE's 'Internet options > General' there's an 'Accessibility' button where you can choose to ignore site colors (though doing so for your example page makes the photo disappear). I usually select unreadable text on poorly designed pages if I need to make it readable.

    Edge doesn't seem to have a similar setting I can find. It does have 'Reading view' which also makes the font dark - and again, makes the photo disappear - must be something about the way that page was designed (it doesn't happen on other sites in Edge or IE).

    In Firefox, type about:preferences#content in the address bar to find it's equivalent font settings.
