High-contrast theme not working properly with Firefox 73

I updated Firefox to version 73.0.1 and Windows 10 Pro to version 1909 at last week. Good news is that update fixed several accessibility issues with Firefox's interface wtih add-ons (i.e. invisible buttons became visible). Bad news is that key functionality in webpages broke down.

Attached are example screenshots from Google main page and Foreca weather service's 10 day forecast for Jyväskylä, Finland. In Google's case "Google Search" and "I'm Feeling Lucky" text is white on black as should be but buttons also have thick white borders around them (not present before update), which makes reading text difficult. In Foreca's site its propably something similar but there is so much white colour involved that I'm unable to read anything.

Can I somehow fix this issue myself? If not where should I report this issue?

Google: https://www.google.fi/ Foreca: https://www.foreca.fi/Finland/Jyvaskyla/10vrk

P.S. On page used for sending this message "Post Question" button has similar thick border but in light blue instead of white. Much easier to read than in posted example cases.

With the new firefox browser update they included color functionality that was supposed to "help" those of us with color vision issues. It doesn't help at all, in fact it actually makes it even harder for some of us to utilize the browser. Now with web sites like yahoo email and ebay, just to name two, there are color accents that are forced upon the user. I utilize a high contrast setting on my computer with the black background and white text. The web browser now ignores that and visiting some web sites it is like looking into a bright flashlight. Is there any way to disable or turn off the new color functionality?

I have also found that trying to use browser themes no longer stays. What I mean is that after setting a "theme" it works until you open a new tab or window and then it goes back to the firefox defaul theme. When checking the add on theme it still says that the theme I wanted is selected and enabled but in truth it isn't.

The first screen shot shows what the theme should be but you can see that it is not working and that happens with any selected and enabled theme.

The second screen shot shows the bright blue bar at the top of the yahoo email page. It used to be black until the 2-11-2020 update of firefox.

The third screen shot is of an ebay page after the update.

I know it seems trivial to those of you with normal color vision but when you cannot work with the color nor change what you are seeing, it is more than just frustrating.
