workaround for blogs.sun.com nuisance

As I ranted on my previous entry, CSS for some themes on blogs.sun.com are not perfect. So, on many blogs.sun.com pages, you can't tell whether you visited the link or not. So, you need a workaround that works on browser side. I googled and found this.

Nothing's Too Sacred: Change the colour of visited links in Firefox & Mozilla
there are certain sites you visit with Firefox/Mozilla/SeaMonkey where the links won't change colour after you visit them? It can be a real nuisance

I'm on Windows so I added this line to "Documents and Settings/${username}/Application Data/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/${uuid}.default/chrome/userContent.css"

a:visited { font-style: italic !important; Color: #551A8B !important}

I want to add one twist to the methods explained in the link above. If you changed the default color for "visited links", you may want to use the value from "about:config" instead of "Purple".
