The world is a comedy to those that think; a tragedy to those that feel.

If your using Linux and run Firefox1. One thing you will notice on Firefox when on a dark themed GTK2 based environment in Linux is the HTML content would adapt to the theme color.
And for some reason I don’t know why Firefox still doesn’t fix this stuff. Here is the link related to the issue: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1527048
UPDATE: Seems this problem has been fixed in Version 67 of Firefox.
Here is the workaround for it:
about:configinside Firefox. You should type this in the URL bar.
- Right click on the content and click
New > Stringwith key
- Restart Firefox.
The steps above would set Firefox content to adapt to white based theme while retaining chroma theme dark. You could also use
Adwaita as value.
So guys, have you ever encountered this bug specifically in Gnome 3 while using Firefox? Hope you guys enjoyed this article and as always live life!
