My Firefox browser recently upgraded to 96.0.1 (64bit) and since then I have noticed that the background on when doing google searches and when watching Youtube is in dark theme. Altering to the light theme in Firefox settings has no effect and I have tried all the suggestions without success.

I did find that by removing the theme Unicorn Fantasy by M♥Donna and installing a light grey theme this forced google and youtube into there light theme. I have also tried installing other themes and these also seem to cause the dark mode.

I would assume it is a problem caused by the latest Firefox update as google and youtube had the normal white background before this. It's not a massive problem, just annoying and makes little difficult to use


Anyone know how to get round this ?

Through no action of my own, the background color for FF has changed from white to black, which I absolutely abhor. I've wasted a lot of time trying a lot of recommended fixes that haven't work. As much as I like FF, I am now working with Edge in Windows 11. This change will be permanent if I don't find a fix for the FF problem.

When I selected the TB icon a window came up saying I must set up my existing email account. I fill in my name, my eddress and password. The next window that comes up shows TB found mobile.charter.net but my email was set up using email.twc.com. The port numbers are the same but the server names are different. When I complete this activity the end result is that my information if rejected. I attempted to configure it by hand but it too was rejected. I am using an HP desktop with the latest Win 10 OS. I don't know what to do.

Hi! I was digging through the changelogs as I noticed that Google and Firefox settings were now in dark mode. I discovered a new feature that had it sync with the system dark-mode. Is there a way to turn this off (through settings or about:config)? Not a huge fan of dark-mode Google, but light-mode Windows is terrifying lol.

Thanks in advance for your help--not a huge deal, just something I was interested in knowing. Have a fantastic day!

I am desperately trying to provide Thunderbird with a certain set of extensions pre-installed for all users (for example language packs). This technique works in Firefox acceptably well: it is sufficient to store the xpi files named after the extension_ID in the %programfolder%\distribution\extensions folder Whatever I am trying in Thunderbird, no add-on ever load, and I cannot find any recent documentation online. If I place the xpi files in the <profilefolder>\extensions this works perfectly. How do I provide them to all users at once??

Hi,

Is there any way to disable the pop-up switch notification which reads "New tab opened Switch"?

I'm talking about the momentary button on the bottom.onnthe screen which provides a way to immediately switch over to the newly opened tab (the colored one).

For clarification, I want to disable ONLY the momentary notification itself, not the ability to open links in new tabs. I've installed a custom add-on which opens new tabs automatically, so the notification is now redundant (and annoying).

Thanks!

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.
