Can the system dark mode preference implemented in release 70.0 be changed?

Posted

I don't like the way some pages (e.g., the Firefox "Options" page), now have a black background. Can I change it?

Hi, try this: Type about:config into the address bar, press Enter and accept the warning. Now right click on any entry > New > Integer, and enter ui.systemUsesDarkTheme > OK, then in the next box, enter 0 (that's a zero) > OK.

Note: Should you make a mistake and want to remove the entry, right click > Reset, then restart Firefox.

Also make sure that browser.in-content.dark-mode is set to False (double click the entry to change it if set to True.)

Now restart Firefox.

The other involves opening the Settings app. Navigate to “Control Center.” Then, find “Customize controls,” and you'll see an option to add Dark Mode to your Control Center.
