I really admire the Firefox browser for its many innovative and adaptive functions and applications that one can customize to their needs without sacrificing security and privacy. The one that I find extremely helpful the most is Dark Reader. As an individual who faces neurophysiological challenges from a traumatic brain injury from many years ago, Dark Reader has enabled me to enjoy working and reading on the internet without having to limit myself or wear super-dark lenses due to sensitivity. The app has worked for most other sites except this support site on the Firefox browser. Because I have to use Chrome for my job, I have tested your support page there with the same app and it seems to work there. Is there something that I am missing?

Hi, there is a restriction on extensions such as Dark Reader working on internal (Mozilla) sites. To remove that: Type about:config into the address bar, press Enter and accept any warning, then copy and paste the following into the search box extensions.webextensions.restrictedDomains Now on the search result, click the Edit button at the right-hand end and delete all the URLs. Note: If you want to change it back to default, just click the Reset button instead.

Hi, To be honest, I haven't used firefox in quite awhile..for reasons that I'm not going to bore everyone with at the moment. I do have the dark reader add-on installed in the firefox nightly version that I'm running, I couldn't figure out why the add-on seemed to function correctly on most other sites as intended except for actual firefox sites. Having came across this article made me even more satisfied with firefox than I already was. I'm so glad that I decided to give firefox another try ! David
