Also noticed last 2 days Store logo is a white blank. Previous 3? weeks was getting Post #39 error. Have now disabled Dark Mode.
As far as Blue Light I use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F.lux Really does help when night arrives.

Hey, I've just updated Dark Mode with a few fixes; you can find it here.
  • Fix the retailer filter links being white on white
  • Lighten the UCP hidden topics for more readability
  • Darken the hide topic button

FYI the multiple arrows bug (#39) is the result of a problem on the main stylesheet. A fix has already been prepared, but won't be released until at least next week. In the meantime, Peroxide's fix should work in the interim. Sorry for the inconvenience!
For inquiries, please message TomRFD.

Just updated to the latest version of Firefox and started experiencing a minor issue. Sometimes the dark mode stylesheet doesn't load and I get the standard white screen. If I refresh the screen, it almost always does load properly. This consistently occurs if I right click a link in a forum and 'open link in new tab'.

Firefox 57.0, 64-bit
Windows 10 OS
Stylish 3.0.1

Anyone else with this issue?

Update: the issue below does NOT happen with the Stylus add-on.

After further testing, I can recreate this issue 100% of the time.

1. Click refresh page (or F5) and immediately switch to another tab (doesn't work if you switch windows)
2. Wait for that page to load before going back to it, and the page will show the default white style

Another way is to right click on a link and open in a new tab. Step 2 must also be done in this case.

If you refresh a page and stay on that page, it will render the dark mode style. Same if you open a new tab, immediately switch to that tab and wait until it loads.

Does the navigation protocol remain the same either http all the time / https all the time? or are your pages loading some in http and others in https?
Stays the same. I can recreate on http and https

Please consider making this a forum setting in the future! :) (for those of us who can't install web scripts)

My dark mode gets the following colours when I use the middle of my mouse to open one a new tab (forums etc).

To get it back to normal dark mode, I have to refresh the page.

Is there a patch or fix for this? Anyone else get this as well?

Using Firefox version 7.0.3 (64-bit)

With the apps on android...
Dark mode has some thread with font color set to black, making it almost impossible to read...

Any ways to disable this?
