How to disable dark mode!?
Hi! This will sound like an odd question, given that everybody seems to search for the opposite - but how could I DISABLE dark-mode in FF95.00?
I have my whole OS in dark-mode the whole time because of looks. I also installed a dark-mode theme on FF. Because of looks. But after the latest updates, FF decided to present a bunch of my favourite websites in dark-mode, too. Even at daytime - where I use my Computer.
Affected websites are, for example such "unknown" websites like "twitter.com", "spiegel.de" or even "facebook.com". It seems like they use some kind of a flag or token, which decides to use darkmode or not. How do I re-enable the light-mode (is this even a word?), not dependent of my windows / FF settings? Is there an add-on?
The default about:config setting was apparently changed in FF95 so that is the change you should make. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1360536#answer-1465159Read this answer in context 👍 1

Go to about:addons, then go to the themes sections on your left. Then disable the Dark Theme and enable the Light Theme.
Depending on your browser's theme, the site you visit will also be that theme color. Because your browser was on "dark-mode", the websites you visited (google, twitter, etc.) would be on "dark-mode".
Hope I helped!
It would probably be easiest to use the automaticDark extension and set it to change between a light theme during the daytime and a dark theme during the night.
You could also set the layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override pref in about:config to 1 (0 - dark, 1 - light, 2 - system, 3 - browser). Then set the Dark Reader extension to come on automatically at night. That would allow a dark system theme, dark browser theme, light web pages during the day, and dark web pages at night. However, the about:preferences, about:addons, and such will be light color.
