I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

I didn't ask for this change, and I don't want it. Black on white is hard on my eyes to read.

I've already checked around the forums and nothing that other posters have suggested works to change it back. Yes, I use a custom theme and I'm not going to change it to "white". I didn't make any changes , firefox did.

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

I HATE the new look. I've hated it ever since they smoothed everything out, and tabs just look like some sort of continuous amorphous mess. I want the lines between tabs so it is easier to distinguish between them. I know that changing the "browser.proton.enabled" to false gets rid of this garbage new look, but for some reason, whenever I switch this over, the setting doesn't save. Every time I reopen FireFox, it reverts back to this ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE layout. (can you tell I hate it? FIX IT MOZILLA!!!!)

Please help...?

Thanks!

Over the years, I have become dependent on a bookmarks toolbar that shows only icons, but will show the text with a mouse hover, using the following in userchrome:

/* The lines below allow the bookmarks toolbar to show only icons */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { display:none !important; }
#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
 margin:0px 0px 0px -4px !important;
 padding:0px !important;
}

The upgrade to Firefox 96 broke this. I considered spending an hour or two deleting the text from all of the bookmarks on my bookmarks toolbar, but I depend on the mouse-hover tooltip with the text to remind me of some important but not all-that-frequently-used bookmarks.

Any help appreciated.

I tend to share images to a lot of my friends and groups through discord, while using firefox as my browser of choice. However, when copying images from firefox, it seems to copy images twice. Ive read that its due to something about one with and without color profiles. Is there a way to disable this? Its not a major deal, just annoying.
