At first I thought this was an issue with Windows 10, but then I realized it really wasn't. I am using the Dark Mode in Windows 10. When I right click on the desktop the dialog box renders in darker colors. Also, most all the programs I use take on the same colors, though I believe it is relative to the program and it is relative to Firefox. Consequently, when I am in the Firefox browser and I right click and open a dialogue box in Firefox, the colors are a white background with a black font, on every web site.

I then remembered the colors option in Firefox and went to options, fonts & colors and changed the colors to a black font on a white page. I also ticked on Use System Colors as I have done in previous versions of Firefox & Windows. However, they won't take, and my dialog boxes continue to have a white background with a black font.

Thank you.

How can I disabling dark theme integration on Windows 10 and Firefox 63. I have dark theme enabled on Windows 10 but don't want this passed to Firefox as I find the tool bars hard to see.

I've tried switching to the light theme within Firefox but this isn't the same as the default theme without Windows 10 having dark mode enabled.

For instance in either dark mode or switching to light mode removes the title bar colour.

The contextual menu on macOS seems to defy all macOS conventions. It doesn't respect dark mode. It doesn't include services. It doesn't, for example, highlight a word when I double-click on one, and doesn't offer me the standard 'Look Up' option, and it ignores system-wide services that I've enabled...

The UI is also prone to misclicks, given that the first layer of the contextual menu is navigation controls. The only other browser that doesn't respect the OS conventions is Tor Browser.

How do I restore the Home button in version 63.0?

My screen is black at the top. I see the "File Edit HIstory Bookmarks ..." line. The only tab I see is the one I'm on, third over. There are other tabs but I can't see what they point to, because they are black. I do not see any button for selecting setup parms.

On the url line, there is only the back-arrow. No reload, no 'home' button, no 'forward page' button. The control-key controls do still work for these, so I will be using those.

How could you have possibly put this into production? And made it - from what I read - irreversible? I can't back out this upgrade.

I'm running Win 10 on an old PowerSpec 648.

The most recent update has changed it so that the text on tabs is highlighted, and it has been bothering me. Below are two images, one of the current highlighted text on the tabs, and the second one of the previous version of the tabs before I installed the most recent update.

Is there any way to turn the highlight off? If there isn't, where can I suggest that there be an option to turn it off? Thank you.

How to invert colors in the embedded pfd reader? (A dyslexic-friendly setting)

I am a dyslexic (and die-hard) Firefox user. Along the course of the years, I found out that inverting the text-background colors is a good practice to reduce the eye-straining and increase my reading speed.

To achieve this in Firefox, I installed "Dark Background Light Text" add-on and it I used to work out extremely good. However, in June 2018 (Firefox 61) this add-on lost the priviledge to operate in the embedded PDF viewer. This is extremely painful (considering that on average I open 40-50 PDF per week), and I often I have to download/open the documents outside Firefox. This often turns out to be a disrupting process, that makes me lose focus when swapping back and forth between the PDF viewer, my IDE and the browser.

I don't know whether there is a way to activate this feature and I think I made a couple of requests to implement it, but, as of now, I've never received any answer. What makes things worse the Firefox's PDF viewer is the __only__ viewer that doesn't support this feature natively. Is there a way to enable this in Firefox? (I could be as desperate as to try to volunteer to implementing it in the code myself)

Please, don't leave my support request unanswered any longer.
