After installing the Firefox Beta 39.0, i was unable to enable the dark mode through about:config.

This is what i have changed: browser.devedition.theme.enabled: true devtools.theme: dark lightweightThemes.selectedThemeID: firefox-devedition@mozilla.org

I am using "The Fox, Only Better" plugin, and i have disable it without luck.

Hi CiRiX, I understand that you are using a dark theme and have changed the settings in about:config, this may change the way that the enable/disable button works in the themes section of about:addons.. It is possible to reinstalled the extension, or try these troubleshooting steps:

I managed to fix it by clicking on enable then disable on another theme.

Thanks for your help!

You can possibly do this in the Toolbox options of the Developer toolbar (Shift+F2).

You get the theme by changing the settings in about config. You cant get it by going to the extention page. This is the same look as the Firefox Developer Edition Theme.

I have made this work in previous releases.

This only changes the theme of the Toolbox :/

That changes the theme in the user interface as well when I select the Developer Edition theme in the Customize palette.
