HELP! Google Menu Bar (or Navigation Bar) has turned black
I''m using internet explorer, with basic Google. And today the menu bar (or navigation) bar has turned black - so I can''t read the labels of the buttons. The top bar (with the URL) is ok. But the next two bars (lines) are black.%0D\
I''ve now found various suggested solutions on the internet - but no explanation of what happened.%0D\
I''m trying this solution from a poster named fmfl:%0D\
As I read the replies I think all of us are dancing around the same answer, i.e., altering and reforming the Display. Here''s how I do mine:%0D\
1. Begin at the Desktop Startup Screen%0D\
3. All Programs%0D\
4. Control Panel%0D\
5. Accessibility Options%0D\
7. Check the Use High Contrast box%0D\
9. Uncheck the Use High Contrast box%0D\
11. Close Control Panel%0D\
12. Now everything will be normal (no black toolbars)%0D\
13. The next time you Startup you will have a 50-50 chance of no black toolbars. If they are black go back and do steps 1-11 again%0D
Will you guys help the OP? Don''t just sit there, and post stupid jokes!
Switch to the Chrome browser.
Please try Firefox or Google Chrome.
R1''s link seems to have a lot of good info.\
OP, if you''re using Windows XP, people at the link say you have to switch from "standard" or "classic" to "XP".\
But I agree that Chrome is better anyhow.

Well now it''ll never work.
Ask someone else whose isn''t black to print the bar from their computer and then tape it onto your monitor.
OP, how big is your toolbar?
Black Google bar has been displayed first time in Chrome with me, after re-install (didn%C2%B4t start youtube videos - black screen) it is all white and everything is o.k., in updated Opera it shows in black now, but when click for example: "translate", then the menu goes back into white, the differences are so irritating ...!

I have Windows XP and I use chrome. My Google bar is black, too. Time to go look for a fix.
As long as it is a legit thing, then fuck it.
Weird things have been happening in cyberspace lately.%0D\
First the United Airlines complete system shutdown, and after that, my system has been running slow.%0D\
Also, I have been getting "registry change" pop-ups when I use Datalounge, and now I also had the black google bar, as of yesterday.%0D\
Are hackers trying to bring the whole system down? Because something very weird is going on.
R22, read the link at R12 and one of your "problems" is solved.
after that, you might try readjusting the aluminum foil
LOL. It''s turned black for me too today but I think it looks better now.
It''s a new design, morons.
I don''t understand why OP says that he can''t read the labels of the buttons. For me (with Chrome), those are grey & clearly visible against the black background.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
