How to change the color of web pages before they load

Posted

So, I am yet another person asking about how to change the background colors so that I am not blinded by the flash of unstyled content. I have tried a custom userChrome file, ShadowFox, addons, and changing the display color in the about:config page. None of these have fixed the problem. Using them, I have made myself a dark theme that even works on browser pages. Now the problem is that the flash of unstyled content is white, and thus it hurts my eyes whenever I load a page. At this point, I have downloaded the source code, and am hoping the find the relevant section that would make the background black, so that for that split second where the css has not loaded, I do not have to see a white flash.

I am using Firefox Developer Edition. I have already enabled the dark theme, and at this point my only hope left is the source code. Can anyone point me to the file that controls the main background color for pages that have not loaded yet?

Shadowfox should work when getting rid of the "white flash" before the load of new pages. I have been using it since it came out and its worked flawlessly across OSes.

My userChrome file is a mixture of Shadowfox, copied/pasted from /r/firefox, and my own CSS. I currently use .tabbrowser-tabbox { background-color: #323234; } to get rid of the flash.

Unfortunatly, while shadowfox works to change the browser pages, it does not solve the flash problem for me. Is there a configuration I need to do for it?

My preload flash is still white, even with shadowfox and a combination of about 5 different solutions people have used in my userChrome file.
