I hit something in error and now my search results are dark. Only the google screen as attached. if I go to the links on the search page they will be light. I read someone say that by touching the top of the screen can do that?. I may have done I was half asleep.

There is no about:config

The theme is light in settings/ customise. Latest FF in android 12 on an Honor x6

Also it is only FF, Brave shows search results as light.

I hate that dark look and want the ligh one back

Idk if this it's common knowledge or not, but I couldn't find anything anywhere about this! I accidentally opened a menu that let me change the background of my homepage on Firefox Nightly (Android)

I was just tapping around and a drawer poped up with a bunch of options including some limited edition ones at the bottom

I didn't think to screenshot the drawer but I did pick one I liked the looks of from the preview. I'll include a screenshot of the default homepage grey and the purple gradient I got through the theme drawer

The only other thing I remember is something about "add a splash of color" (it was spelt the American way specifically I remember)

Does anyone know how I can get this menu back? I want to try the different themes and theme my main Firefox app too

Hi, can anyone tell me if Firefox for Android (in my case: Fennec) will get a native dark mode for websites in the future? I know there are addons that do this, but unfortunately they make browsing much slower.

I dont trust dark reader so in firefox desktop i use settings override the colors specified by the page with your selections above to Always, for me is enough, every site is dark and doesnt slow anything, but the real question is how to change or should i say force every site to dark in firefox nightly android, of course in nightly we have about:config available so is hope to do that without extensions but i dont know which line will do the right job? I found something like “browser.display.background_color” but where will be option to activate override the colors like in desktop? Thank you so much as always.

Hi,

I actually really enjoy Pocket on my main windows machine in Firefox, read lots of the suggested articles all the time. However, when searching about it for Android all my queries seem to bring up the fact that it should be baked in from the get go.

My issue is that when I go to the "Customise Hompage" section there IS NO option for pocket. No mention, no checkbox etc. I have all the other options. I thought perhaps it was something else that I needed to download it from the app store separately however that didn't do anything either. I'm on 113.20 according the "About Firefox" section of the browser. Android version 13. I just did a reinstall of the app and nothing new appeared either.

Can anyone suggest any options.

As the title says, is it possible for reader view to follow the system's light/dark mode?

Currently, I can manually choose white on black, sepia, or black on white. That's great, though I'd prefer if the black/white or white/black would switch according to whether the system is in light or dark mode.

Apart from that, thanks for Firefox, I love it!

I read the strings of comments regarding about:config not working and presenting a blank page. I have the same issue.

I have been a Firefox user for decades, preferring Firefox over all other browsers. However, without the ability to customize Firefox we, the loyal, may be forced to use another browser. Also, no customization is only contribution to other browser's owners/developers efforts to eliminate Firefox.

Is there a solution to fixing current version or Firefox, about:config in development or already available?

Thank you.

Is there a way to force "dark mode" for websites on mobile WITHOUT using an extension like Dark Reader?

I am comparing this to coming from Brave, where I am using their "experimental" Night Mode settings (which works great). For the desktop browser, I've gone to Manage Colors and swapped text/background white/black to make most websites appear as if they have a dark mode, but that option doesn't seem to exist on mobile.

I've attached 4 images that show the differences across the two browsers on mobile. Even Google's own Dark Theme doesn't seem accessible through whatever method FireFox uses, so I can't even use that dark theme without an extension at the moment.

If this is not currently possible, I'm hoping it's planned for future implementation. I can't suggest it either since the feature suggestion page appears to be down at the moment (being reworked?).

Hello! Thank you for your help! I want to install my personalized version of startpage as the common search engine on my android mobile.

This is my personalized search string: https://www.startpage.com/do/mypage.pl?prfe=88c786572599bb1107d3c74eaec3b3ca5076330f9b0ee54884a22b7a784d2b0a689bbc9b7a89edd7438b53c487ee2e4e628759948e78c9e03a2a82c5107f459c595a56be6ab8c7def9ac63f6

But it is not possible!

On the mozilla helppage it says (translated from german): https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/suchmaschinen-verwalten-firefox-android#w_hinzufugen-einer-zusatzlichen-vordefinierten-suchmaschine

"If the entered Internet address (URL) of the search string is invalid, an error message is displayed to help you enter a valid Internet address. Important: Make sure that you replace the search string with the placeholder "%s", for example:

https://www.google.com/search?q=%s https://www.startpage.com/sp/search?q=%s https://search.brave.com/search?q=%s https://www.ecosia.org/search?q=%s


But as you can see, in my personalized search string there is no placeholder! What to do to install nevertheless my personalized version of the startpage search string as the common search engine on my android mobile?

Thank´s a lot

Enable dark theme for UI without forcing it on websites?

I don't understand why Firefox Android was designed so that the UI's dark theme also gets automatically thrust upon websites without user consent?

Dark theme for the UI and dark conversion for websites are supposed to be two *different* features. It baffles my mind that they were merged together like this, rather than just add an extra toggle for the user.

I know that there's an option to un-toggle the websites going dark in the about:config menu. But the Firefox stable release has actually disabled access to about:config as well!?

So what are we left to do? Just forever use the Beta/Nightly versions if we want any customizability over our favorite browser?

Why even disable about:config in the stable release in the first place, generally speaking? Chrome doesn't disable access to it in their stable release versions. Who's brilliant idea was it to make this change?!

'Add to Home Screen' adds an invisible app that can't be opened and prevents reinstallation

Phone: Oneplus 8 Android version: 12 Build number: IN2015_11_C.21 Firefox version: 105.1.0

Steps to reproduce: - Open Firefox - Go to a website - Click the triple vertical dots - Add to home screen - Press add - Press add

This bug is still here and ruining the PWA that I made and wanted to install on my phone. The app isn't on the home screen or any of the other screens, but attempts to add it again fail with the message "This shortcut already exists".

How do I remove these invisible shortcuts? Can I do this through the file explorer? If not, can this be fixed?

Also please let me know if a video reproducing this issue would be helpful. I can reliably reproduce it every time.
