In the preferences, the non active checkboxes are hard to see, because they are in a very light grey. For me peronaly it is hard to see that there is a checkbox at all, and only after hover the mouse over it and it get blue, it became clear.

I would suggest to make the boxes in a darker grey, or black, so it is clear that there is a box on the first sight.
Amy, can you take a look and consider if we can increase contrast here to provide better accessibility?

I believe Firefox 65 made the borders darker, which will probably fix this issue.
Hi, 

Even with the update in 65, the checkbox boarders still fail in a colour contrast test. Right now it's set to Grey 90 30a. Can this be updated to Grey 90 40a?
