In Mozilla Firefox, drop down menus present on various webpages are transparent. This is a problem unless the web page background happens to be white... (as it's difficult to read menu text when displayed directly above web page text and or graphics). Anyway, I found the Solution on this site from Grampaw7. He said that the problem was solved by disabling High Contrast via Control Panel > Accessibility Options> "Adjust the contrast for Text and colors".
The problem I'm having is that when I clicked on the "Adjust the contrast for Text and colors", nothing opened. Those Windows files are apparently missing from my computer. So, the question is two-fold.
1. If I don't have the files, would my problem with transparent menus (in firefox) still be solved if I installed the missing files and then disabled the 'high-contrast'?
2. Where/how can I get or download the missing Control Panel files? (I've lost my operating system disks, so that's not an option). (I have Windows XP Professional version 5.1 service pack2)
Thanks for any help!
