I just posted a question and I noticed that unvisited links use a color that is difficult to distinguish ... but visited links are even harder to recognize. See the snapshot below from my Firefox 41.0.2 (all default settings).

enter image description here

Does it look different on other browsers?

Let me know if this is not the right place to ask questions about the appearence of the site (I'll delete the question).

EDIT: after reading the comments, it's clear that there is an issue with the css style of visited/unvisited links ... is there a way to signal it to the web designers of mathoverflow?

    $\begingroup$ Agreed: visited links are practically invisible to me too (also using FF 41.0.2). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ For me univisted links are fine, for visited I agree. See a related question meta.mathoverflow.net/questions/320/… In any case this is the right place to report this. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If I tilt my computer screen, the visited link looks purple (as I would expect from past experience on this site, and from other sites), but there he purple is very very faint. Unvisited links look blue, again as I would expect. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I find it almost imposs to distinguish visited links from the rest of the text (on FF, OSX). I think this may have to do with the default css used by MO. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I have given up on hoping that anyone pays attention to color schemata problems on SE. $\endgroup$
