I love extensions like Dark Reader that automatically transform any website with a dark theme. The way they do this is by injecting many new styles into the DOM, it works but there is two main drawbacks to this method :
- there's a latency that makes contents blink
- it reduces performances on some websites by a lot

So It would be great if there could be a built-in low level solution (directly in web render?) that would swap colors on the fly without editing the page styles and thus would solve the two aforementioned issues.

I cant understand why most of the important feature are not directly implemented into firefox. Why we need add ons for basic work. Firefox need lots of major improvements

Good Lord, pretty please. I can't imagine why anybody ever thought white default was good idea for anything, be it web pages or writing interfaces. Opera does it perfectly, at least on Android so it's obviously possible. Also, other elementary functions like Undo Close Tab. I wouldn't mind some equivalent of I Don't Care About Cookies, proper session manager and so on either. Also, by all that is holly, make it so that links open in new tabs by default. I have machine on which I simply have to live with having to open new tabs manually before I search for anything, no matter what I do.

I'd really like to see this feature as well. It's unfortunate that Dark Reader can't convert PDFs to dark mode on Firefox but works fine on Chrome, so it'd be great if this was available natively.

What does this mean? This major update also ushers an exciting user interface change in the form of the "new extensions button".

Insert dark mode directly in Firefox

In my opinion is, nowadays, a basic and important function and I noticed that with an add-on the browser slows down, for other type of use the add on mechanism is OK, but for dark sites it seems not the best idea. Is it possible to complete the functionality by inserting an option directly in Firefox? Thanks. Alex

This needs to be a thing, I really don’t like having my eyes hurt. Like I can physically feel my eyes bulging in my head when looking at a blinding white webpage, it hurts! 

also, please do NOT allow websites to circumvent this! Let me manually turn it off when I want to instead. Otherwise I will outright refuse to visit certain websites that will prevent auto dark mode.
