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.

love Firefox! But the one reason for switching to edge now is its many options to automatically show websites in dark mode, not complete color inversion, just black background with all other items, fotos, etc in normal color.

FirefoxにDark Readerのような、全てのサイトに強制的にダークモードを適用する機能を追加してください!また、ホワイトリストへの登録や、色の強さを変更できる機能も追加していただけるとありがたいです!そして、モバイルデバイスでもツールバーからアクセスできるボタンがあればなお良いです!そしてできれば動作を軽くしてほしいです!

Please add a feature like Dark Reader to Firefox that forces dark mode on all sites! I would also appreciate it if you could add the ability to register to the whitelist and change the color strength! And even better if there is a button that can be accessed from the toolbar on mobile devices too! And if possible, I would like to make the movement lighter!

We need it for sure, because it's very comfortable for eyes in the evening and night.

I desperately wish this would be implemented.
I read PDFs with the color replacement(through the "Preferences -> Accessibility" menu), all my OS themes are dark mode, I type in word in dark mode. I've got the forced dark mode enabled on the Edge browser through the edge://flags at work (I use Edge at work). My eye strain is so much less than it used to be.

This website, with it's incredibly white background, is like staring at the sun now. I don't want to use Edge at home: I like the privacy protections I can get through the Mozilla platform, but I'm getting awfully tempted nowadays.

As soon as I noticed that we have Dark Mode in Firefox for Android I started using it 50% more of the time than previously. This is a huge plus for this version of Firefox (for Android). Chrome sucks for not having native dark mode in its app like you guys do now! Thank you for this. +1 for this. 🙂

@victorwestmannwhere is that option? I can't find anywhere to enable dark mode for websites.

I would love to use Firefox as my main browser but the dark mode does not work for the pages I visit most often.  If I override with forcing a black background then it will change important features of those websites to make them not usable.  So I use Opera since their dark mode is more nuanced on how it applies the black background but in keeping with the sites theme as well.  I have not tried Dark Reader for Firefox because I have read the reviews and performance is an issue.  Why can't Mozilla develop a more nuanced dark mode? If they can develop it for their mobile app then why not for regular computers?

@dreamhermobile doesn't have dark mode for websites. Mobile users also need to use add-ons like dark reader. I don't know where you got that info from.

You are right. I made a mistake. I guess I was so excited that I was able to install the dark reader add-on to my Firefox on Android that I forgot to mention it was not built in but a 3rd party add-on installed. Apologies for the confusion on this. Thanks!
