Hello tommy667805, To change the theme of your Homepage (and more), click on Open Menu(menu button on the top right corner)< Customize< Themes(on the bottom)< Choose one of the default themes, or click Get more themes to get more themes. Now you should be able to find a them as there are tons of themes too get in the addons store.

Tell me if that helped and, Stay Safe!

Hi tommy667805,

In Firefox, there's no way to change the background image of the home page (new tab) from the Settings. Add-ons can surely do that, but there's a better approach: We can create a CSS file and tell Firefox to load that file when it starts.

To do so, follow these steps:

1. Go to about:support in the address bar. View the section "Application Basics" ➔ Profile Directory (or "Profile Folder" on MacOS) ➔ click the button "Open Directory" (or "Show in Finder" on MacOS).

2. Create a directory called chrome inside the opened directory, if it's not already there.

3. Go to the chrome directory and (a) create a directory called img and (b) create a file called userContent.css. Move your image to the img directory.

4. Open userContent.css in any text editor and paste the following code:

@-moz-document url(about:home), url(about:newtab), url(about:privatebrowsing) {

   .click-target-container *, .top-sites-list * {
       color: #fff !important ;
       text-shadow: 2px 2px 2px #222 !important ;
   }
   body::before {
       content: "" ;
       z-index: -1 ;
       position: fixed ;
       top: 0 ;
       left: 0 ;
       background: #f9a no-repeat url(img/background.jpg) center ;
       background-size: cover ;
       width: 100vw ;
       height: 100vh ;
   }

}

Don't forget to change the file name in url(img/background.jpg) to your preferred image. Save the file and quit the editor.

5. Go to the url about:config, accept the risk (we will not really do anything harmful here, nothing to worry about), and in the Search Bar, paste toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, and set the value to true. This tells Firefox to load the CSS file at startup.

6. Restart Firefox if it's running.

It will work for sure. I have done this and its working completely fine in my computer.

Oh so the theme on Firefox can’t fill up the whole page? Wow I’ve been searching these for a long time, thanks!

Hiiii...

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

Here is one' NoSquint , NoSquint allows you to adjust the text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels as well as color settings both globally (for all sites) and per site.
