Unvisited links in sidebar shows up blue regardless of custom color

Tested on Firefox and Chrome and Confluence 5.9.2.

This issue is not present when running Safari.


When users are running Firefox or Chrome the unused links in the sidebar seems to ignore the custom color settings. They still show up as blue default color. When clicked once, they gain the custom color.

When running Safari all seems to work well.

Hi Magnus,


I do believe you're running into a known bug that affects Confluence 5.9.1 and 5.9.2:


We've not a definitive fix for that, but you can check the workaround in the report which include adding CSS code to fix the issue.

In the meantime, we recommend you to vote on it and add yourself as a watcher of the issue to get any updates or resolution.
