re Tame gray

>> Oh? How did you manage to do that? Is there actually some hidden configuration option for that?

I think by leaving alone. Really ... I haven't done anything to change the appearance, at least not that I'm aware of.

I tried to hunt down some configuration but could not find any. So it's still as horrible blue as ever.

People keep claiming blue is 'calming' but to me - when it's where I don't want it - it's like a red flag in front of a bull. Somehow that doesn't apply to photographs though - I'll happily image blue things, including totally bright blue things.

Is it possible that you accidentally set some theme? Also, have you tried setting the theme back to the default or setting a new theme? There are a number of themes. Some make you wonder what people are thinking, but there is a wide variety of themes, and I saw one or two that I think you might find ok.

Different strokes for different folks. But that's why both Chrome and Firefox let you make a number of changes in this respect. IE gives you less choice in the matter.

Nope - no theme at all! This blue is just how it looks out of the box. I have not even tried to download any - after all this is the browser that's only just barely tolerated because I need to test with it, not actually *use* it.

Opera is bad, too (they started that around version 6 or 7) - I just upgraded to the latest (12) to get the new 'Do Not Track' option (a bit late off the mark but they've caught up at least) but the upgrade threw out my 'native windows' theme and now it no longer adapts to the system style. Spent half an hour or so to find a theme that makes it look at least reasonable - but Opera is a browser that I occasionally actually use, and not merely to test with.
