 Replying to [comment:2 mcs]:
 > I am 95% sure that visited link color won't change when "Remember
 browsing and download history" history is disabled (which is true by
 default in Tor Browser due to use of permanent private browsing mode). If
 that is the cause of this issue, then I think this is a "won't fix."

 I think you are correct here. This works both in Firefox and Tor Browser
 is you enable the history but does not work if you always start in private
 browsing mode (PBM). sajolida: Are you arguing we should change the
 behavior in PBM in the sense that we should make this feature available by
 e.g. saving/keeping the respective data in memory as good as we could?
