The new soft color look

Today I was greeted with an invitation to explore different color options for my home screen. I'm fairly conservative, but thought I'd give it a try & selected something like "soft green."

Bottom line is that the changed look is slightly distracting & I'd like to go back to the plain vanilla screen. But it's not obvious (to me anyway) how to do that.

Any suggestions?

Bless you all. Once I found the "themes" bit it was easy.

Wouldn't it be great if all problems were resolved to satisfactorily?

Hi, I think you would do it through the Add-ons page, Themes panel. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Themes.

The top part of the page has traditional themes, and the lower part has the new "Colorways" themes. Whichever one you enable will take over, so you can pretty quickly get an idea of which one will work best for you.

Does that let you fix it?

Note that you can also access "Add-ons and Themes" via the "Manage Themes" button at the bottom of the customize page.
