The 10/18/2022 update changed the theme and color settings for my browser. It is practically unusable. Attempts to use other themes do not solve the problem. Every web page I have used since the update is affected. Screen clip attached. Besides killing my productivity today, this change has made FF unusable! How Do I get this Reset to Prior State?

PS: Just now, I try to click the box for "Email me when someone answers the thread" and it will not mark the box.

I'm not sure what combination of settings you have in your Firefox and at the Windows level.

As the first step, could you make sure that if Firefox thinks you have a high contrast system theme, it does not use that information when laying out pages. This article has the steps: Disable high contrast mode in Firefox.

Any difference/improvement?

Thank You for the Quick and helpful Reply. This is a marked improvement. When the update processed, the theme was changed to Dark and the window borders, tabs, scroll bars, etc. were changed to Dark as well. That started the excursion into looking for a reset/return to status quo; hence my change of the contrast mode. I still have an unfamiliar theme running and would like to reset it to the Default, basic vanilla, plain jane, ordinary out-of-the-box format if possible.

Thanks again for your help!
