When browsing a site I often come across text that is too light to be legible. It is like a print where the ink has run out and it is desperately trying to print something anyway.

When using Firefox or google Chrome from Windows 10, the text is perfectly legible. The presentation is just a little bit different and the ink has not run out on this printer.

A concrete example is https://keccak.team/index.html . If I run this from Fedora on either Firefox or google Chrome, the font is much too light on a white background. From the css it seems they use their own fonts and styling.

Does anyone know how I can get the text legible again?

I am running the latest Fedora version (26) with all software updated including Firefox.

I have the same problem. I tried to find a video contrast adjustment, but couldn't find anything.
