toggleDocumentColors is a Firefox and SeaMonkey extension that lets you easily toggle the page colors between the page-defined colors and your own personal color preferences. The colors may be toggled by means of a keyboard shortcut (Control-Shift-C) or a button on the toolbar.
To add the new button to the toolbar, right-click the Toolbar and select "Customize..." from the popup menu. Then find the "Toggle Colors" icon and drag it to the browser's toolbar. Then click the Done button.
You can configure your own page colors by selecting "Tools - Options..." from the Firefox menu, then selecting the "Content" tab, and then selecting the "Colors..." button. This opens a window where you can select which colors to use for the page background, text, and links. This window also has a checkbox, "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above". Using the Toggle Document Colors keyboard shortcut or toolbar button is equivalent to opening the afore-mentioned window and selecting or unselecting the checkbox. But using the keyboard shortcut or toolbar button is much simpler and quicker.
This add-on has additional functionality to avoid your own colors from clashing with the page-defined colors in situations where the page overrides the background color but not the text color, or where it overrides the text color but not the background color. When you toggle the add-on to use the page-defined colors, your own color settings are saved to memory, and the color settings are set back to default values (generally, black text and white background). When you toggle back to using your own colors, they are set back to your saved values.
Important: To update your personal color preferences while this add-on is installed, you should first toggle to personal color mode, and only then update your color preferences. If you update the color preferences while in page-defined color mode, your updates may be lost when you subsequently toggle between modes (due to the above-mentioned functionality).
This add-on is based on one which was originally created and uploaded by user "ecraven" on 02/03/2009.
