When in a thread, look at Links line along top. It should look like this:
Topics listing | View posts individually | Topic Commands | Email this to a friend
If it says "View All At Once," click that to view all the posts on the thread, which eliminates having to read black text against a darkish colored background.
ALSO, if there's black text on darkish colored background, you can sweep the cursor over the block of text you want to read easier, and highlight it. That will give you a bright background quickly!
To scroll down a page quickly, simply hold your mouse button on the Down Scroll Arrow.
Or, hit the "Page Down" button.
Or grab the scroll bar slider box with your mouse and jam it to the bottom (or wherever you want to go).
