[tor-talk] TBB visited links color
Visited links in TBB (4.0.3 and up).
Sorry, didn't find anything in
or FAQs or in any filed bugs, about how TBB handles visited links
Should TBB visited links turn color, or not - by design?
At 1st, no visited links were turning colors in TBB 4.0.3 - Win.
Checked & the pref: browser.visited_color; #551A8B was at default value.
I assumed links didn't turn colors either because of private browsing
mode, or TBB modified to prevent links from turning colors.
To see if it was private browsing, I disabled that in Torbutton & restarted.
They still didn't change. I re-enabled private browsing AND all 4
boxes are checked under Torbutton > Privacy tab (as is the default).
When restarted TBB again, links *did* change color (to default dark purple).
Re-checked Torbutton Privacy tab - all 4 options still checked.
After still another restart, links no longer turned color (private
browsing still enabled in Torbutton).
Not sure what happened - wanted to make sure TBB is behaving as designed
- if they should / should not turn color?
Side question: I assume if TBB allows them to turn color, that it may
not be wise to choose a non-default visited link color?
Not sure if sites could detect / query the color specified & see that it
isn't the default purple?
