Active tabs in dark mode are not noticeable enough. Should be more highlighted!
Oftern mistakes in closing wrong tab.

Yes, I fully agree. Something should be changed in order to highlight the active tab. It is now impossible to see which tab is active and I keep closing the wrong tab.

Let me know where the code is and I change it;

Make Active Tab Light Colored When in Dark Mode

When in Dark Mode all tabs are dark. If you have multiple tabs up (like the 30 or so I have open) it is difficult to tell which tab I have active. Make the active tab Anything but black.

Making moves

I have Firefox in Dark mode too but I adjusted the background colors in Windows display to change the "window" colors title bar,taskbar, start menu to a medium gray. So now the top tab bar of Firefox has the active tab Black and the inactive tabs Gray. this helps to see the tabs too by using the Windows settings to adjust it. Hope this helps as a work around.

Strollin' around

Yep, which tab is my active tab? Your guess is a good as mine🙄 It actually looks slightly more obvious in the screen shot than on a large monitor but it could easily be any one of the purple container tabs. If the active tab was inverted or something at least I could find it. Have to resort to using ctrl-tab most of the time.
