    MS just "upgraded" my Edge browser. Now, when I click links in RHP, they don't darken.

    I find this frustrating as hell. And, btw, if I google something and have pages of links, when I click on them, they darken, as it should be. What the heck gives with this at RHP?

    Also, I right click to open links in a new tab. But it doesn't matter either way.

    Thanks in advance.

    Link - Any subject you click on in this forum is a link.
    Normally, after you click it, it darkens. (dark green vs. a lighter green) to let you know that you have opened that link.

    The only suggestion I have is to use a real browser.

    Websites can use styling to make the links look however they want.

    In the beginning of the Inter-webz, not-yet-followed links were blue, and previously-visited links were purple.

    Then some overly-aesthetically-minded people decided they did not want to be stuck with those colors.

    So now each webmaster can make them whatever color they want, including the same color.

    I am not sure if there is a work-around. I may do a bit of research on it...

    I used to use Chrome but I hate google. I used Firefox, too. But when I got the new 'puter, I used edge and found it to be good. Maybe I'll go back to firefox. I hope it is easy to get my favorites into it.

    The nice thing about Firefox is that it has a built-in option to always make followed links the color of your choice!

    @Earl-of-Trumps

    Following on to what BDP wrote about some websites overriding the default link-coloring behavior:

    You might be able to add an extension to override their override. 😉

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027935/microsoft-edge-add-or-remove-browser-extensions

    I would search for a suitable extension using the keyword "links".

    I haven't used Firefox in years, that one still around!
