Black background via Windows 10's "High Contrast Theme" ignored

Firefox just updated a few minutes ago, and since the update my background in every website I visit is white. Previously my backgrounds were all black due to my Windows 10 "High Contrast Theme" being activated. Well since the update it seems Firefox "ignores" the Windows Theme settings and overrides them with its own. As far as I can tell, there is no way to make websites display with a black background like they did before the update. I hope this gets fixed.

How can I change back to version 91.0.2 from this last update. I do not like the way that favorite tabs are presented, too much space between, not helpful. I like to be able to look at my entire saved entries, not scrolling thru because they are so far apart.

I want a toolbar button I can click on once that opens the Manage Bookmarks (Library) window. I want it to do the equivalent of Ctrl+Shift+O.

I'm completely aware of the Library icon, and the "Show your bookmarks" icon with the little star in the tray, but both of those require two clicks to open a separate Library window with Bookmarks selected. I once figured out how to do something similar with a bookmark to some place in About: but this opened a separate tab I then had to close and I want it to open a separate window.

I've used Firefox since at least 2007 or earlier and I still miss the little star icon (or was it a globe) that opened Organize Bookmarks. It's not laziness on my part, but it is over a decade of muscle memory I still haven't shaken. Besides, what was the advantage of making it harder to get to?

Firefox Issue With Twitter

I don't have a Twitter account, but I read them. But for the last couple of months, when I go into one, I get a big Twitter window that says, "Don't miss what's happening," and I have to x out of it. I get that window every time I go into someone's Twitter.

Also, if I click on a tweet to read the comments, that window comes up again, and when I x out of it, I get back to the main twitter page, not the individual tweet with the comments.

Also, if I click on something that's embedded in a tweet - like a news article - same thing happens. I get that big window. I x out of it, but again it takes me back to the main twitter page. So I can't read the article. (I could go to that particular Tweet's link, and read the comments or article, but I shouldn't have to do that.)

I was always able to read the comments and click embedded articles within a tweet. I never had to sign in - never had a Twitter account.

This is not happening at all in Chome or Edge, only Firefox, so it's a Firefox issue. What's going on?

How to Advise Mozilla that Capricious Changes to FireFox Interface are Unwelcome!

Perhaps some like change for its own sake. Many just want to use a browser to get work done.

I am Reticent to Upgrade FireFox because I now expect something To Change, To Break, I don't want the look and feel to change when I want to get work done! I want security fixes but broken features and a rearranged interface hinders the use of a browser.

Continuity is key to smooth use of a Browser. Moving menus, changing tabs, rearranging features, dumbing down menu titles is most unwelcome.

I particularly don't want browser interface changes intended for a tablet or pad for use on a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes to the Appearance should be OPT IN not OPT OUT.

First of this issue is atleast 4 years old. I found various different people having this problem. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644 It should be a P5 not a P3. This official Mozilla article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-trusted-websites-your-allow-list-firefox-focus Does NOT work.

I am trying to add an expection to tracking protection but there is no such option, as descriped at Bugzilla. In the adress bar i removed the tracking protection for a website. But it was NOT added to the exception list. I dont allow 3rd party cookies and auto delete cookies when closing Fox. I think that is the reason why it's not working, if this is the case it's a bug.

What i actually tried to do, using dark-theme from duckduckgo permanently. Because as right now, i must change the theme every single time i reopen Firefox. This is Bull**** honestly. Even when i add duckduckgo as an addon, it does not save the dark theme!
