Hi, since 12 July update, any theme with a darkish colour is now leading to full dark mode on screen, i.e. web page is in dark mode, sidebar is dark mode etc. Whereas pre-update the screen/sidebar were light, which is how I like it.

The only way I can keep light mode now is have a 'bright' i.e. light coloured theme.

This doesn't seem right does it?

How can I keep my old, pre 12 July theme(s), or new ones and still work with light screen?

Thanks

Hi

Firefox now harmonises more elements with your toolbar theme. When the text color on your background tabs is light/white, it triggers Firefox to use a dark background on menus, the sidebar, the Library window, and various built-in pages. Firefox also signals sites that you have a dark theme preference.

You can download a different theme from https://addons.mozilla.org.

I hope that this helps.

As well as selecting the right theme, a preference setting may help: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1364418#answer-1474290
