Whenever I open a new tab, which is very often, there's a white flash. This is a blinding to my eyes since I often use my computer with dark backgrounds and in low brightness. Is there a way I can change this to a black flash?

There are similar questions here

But the solutions don't work for opening new tabs.

It's extremely unhealthy for your eyes to have a bright upclose setting infront of you and a dark setting all around you. Fix the root of the problem, and keep your work environment lit. –  Sickest Feb 15 '14 at 19:38
I don't have a bright screen in front of me. Most of the websites I browse aren't completely white, the programs I use aren't bright, I use low brightness on all of my devices, and I use f.lux. –  this is a dead end Feb 15 '14 at 20:27
