Hi Terrain, I think you will need an add-on or style rule modification. It sounds as though the Dark Reader extension meets most of your needs. What do you mean by "firefox protected websites" where it doesn't work?
Like this website, addons site, etc
On chrome dark themes affected those sites but it seems i’m stuck with light mode in firefox for these sites, i also said i already use darkreader and that does work for sites such as youtube, wikipedia and other sites unrelated to firefox (yes i know youtube has native dark theme) but sites like this very one, and pretty much the whole mozilla.org domain are protected somehow by firefox, meaning no extensions can modify them only themes (hopefully)
Yes, there is a list of sites that extensions are not allowed to modify. The purpose is to prevent bad extensions from modifying those pages in a misleading way or stealing data from them. You actually can unprotect one or more of those sites by editing a preference. I have only done that for this support site (because it helps me be more efficient in answering questions); other people might take more risk.
To see where this setting is:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.
(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste restr and pause while the list is filtered
(3) The extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains preference lists the sites where extensions are not able to inject into or extract from the page.
Unfortunately, this is not a per-extension restriction. Once you open a site up, any extension with permission to access the page has free rein.
As an alternate way to dark theme Firefox, you could check out ShadowFox, which applies custom style sheets to Firefox. It is more complicated to set up, but can handle Mozilla sites and internal pages as well.
Omg thank you shadowfox from your description is exactly what i need, if it isn’t the unprotect thingy will definetly work fine with darkreader
