Can someone help please?

This evening I had to close Firefox and when I went to open it again it updated but then I noticed everything was now in dark mode i.e new tab page and my bookmark side bar.

How do I get it back to light mode?

Changing a preference may suffice or you may have to change themes.

You can fix this by selecting a theme that has dark text on the tabs instead of light text.

You can change this pref on the about:config page from 3 to 2 to revert to the Firefox 94 behavior regarding to prefer dark or light background for webpages.

  • layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override [dark:0, light:1, system:2, browser:3]

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
