Enable Firefox Dark Mode on Ubuntu

Dark themes, dark modes, dark colors etc. are always some of the coolest and awesome looking ones. In the case of theming, I personally prefer having a really cool-looking dark theme for my system. A little blend of dark and slightly lighter color and you’re looking pretty cool!

Jokes aside, dark color is also something helpful for your health as well. The monitor is a source of light sitting directly in front of you with constant change in brightness – light and dark and light and dark etc. Different application uses different color combos for creating a focus point. However, according to various reports, darker overall theme strains the eye less than the lighter ones.

Well, we’ve already discussed a few dark themes like the Arc, Qogir etc. Today, we’ll check out on enabling the “dark” on Firefox – the default web browser in most of the Linux distros.
