Latest update forces dark context menus and bookmark menus.

How do I get rid of this crap? I either select a crappy system theme and everything turns a blinding white, or go back to the theme I usually use where everything suddenly is dark. How do I remove darkmode while retaining my favorite theme? I don't want dark mode and I certainly do not want to be blinded either. There must be a useless setting added to the about:config that I can disable.

Thank you.

Chosen solution

I thought came to mind after perusing some of the other threads. A contributor Jscher provided a helpful tip that you could also try out:

type about:config into the address bar to open up the configurator (as i call it). except the warming message that will pop up.

next search for: browser.proton.enabled

then double click over the term "true" and change it to false. then close and relaunch FF.

WARNING: There are plans to remove this preference in the next two months The preference setting was created as a toggle for developers when building the new design. Now that the new interface has shipped, the preference will be removed.

If you have any issues with the new design, please let us know what it is you don't like, and we can try provide more permanent solutions depending on the issue.

do you find some improvements that result from the above tweak?

That's not the line that worked on mine. It's the one titled: browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled

That will change the right side bookmark background from black to white. Seems that the browser.proton enabled line changes the entire browser background color for a lighter dark to black but that line didn't change my bookmark background to white.

You can make these changes in the config box and see the changes then,no need to close Firefox and then restart.

Thanks for your info!!
