How to prevent Firefox from leaking device theme.

I cannot be the only one that likes Dark Mode on the O/S and on the Firefox browser, but not have websites "assume" I want it on their websites..

Dark Mode when executed and implemented well is a fantastic option to have. However, I dont need algorithms doing the thinking for me. I only want websites to read the smallest amount of information about my web browser and operating systems as they need to function. The IOT has far to much information about me then I would like. Websites "assuming" I want to view their website in Dark mode, because I have my O/S or Web browser in Dark mode is a disgrace. To all the extra smart people out there, I realise this is a continence for some people, if not most. I am a Firefox user. I am not "most" people. We're is the option to block this behaviour?

Thank you.

When I go to about:config I cannot find app.update.url. The closest is app.update.url.details and app.update.url.manual

Has it changed to a different pref? How do I view what the update URL is set to?

Starting this morning I have been blocked from all Reddit pages. There's no error message, just the one word “Blocked" in the upper left corner.

I've"quit" the browser and reopened, did not fix the problem. Turning off Tracking and U-origin Ad Block also didn't help.

Curiously I can still access Reddit using my tablet, which is running the same latest build of Firefox and using the same wifi network.

I've sporadically experienced being unable to access other mainstream websites, though I can't remember which ones right now.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I remember sites with related terms not always being grouped up not too long ago. The change isn't bad but would like to know how to disable it. The main issue being ever since this change was implemented, it breaks some functionality. It keeps you from being able to look through the rest of your history until you delete the group. Either it prevents you from continuing to scroll down. Or when you do keep scrolling, it keeps looping the sites already shown.

In v.96.2.0, when a new tab is opened (either with the "+" or menu "new tab"), I do get a new tab - but in this version I no longer get the 3 vertical dots beside the address bar to allow me to, for instance, access my bookmarks or history. My choice is limited to the bookmarks already on the homepage. This was not the case with previous versions.

If, after I create the new tab, I do select one of the homepage bookmarks - say, Google search - the 3 vertical dots reappear and Incan get at my bookmarks ... but now I've got an unwanted extra tab open.

Weird.
