I have glaucoma, and find high-contrast backgrounds -- white, in particular -- to be a strain on my eyes.

For email, I switched from Netscape to Thunderbird, because the latter allows me to control the background color of the message body (provided the message is not HTML). Helps a great deal.

For browsing, I tried overriding background color via (in FireFox 1.0) Tools > Options... > Fonts & Colors... > Always use my Colors; and a similar option in Netscape 7.1. But in either browser, though the background color does change, a lot more changes also for many, many Web sites--including this one. Buttons disappear entirely. Borders wander all over the place. Drop-down menus become transparent, so their content overlays text beneath, making the menu items very difficult to read.

Are there any other settings I can use to prevent this wholesale display trashing, or am I SOL? Some Web sites are not affected; for example, amazon.com, and even my local library's Web site, appear normal, with only the background color changed.

The link is for the extension at the Firefox Extension Mirror site but it is down at the moment.
