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?

Example in picture...
ya this is a pretty big visual bug!

Thanks markj !!!
I though I was the only one having this as nobody seems to complain about this and it is (IMO) very noticeable in the apps ...
Still on the line to switch back to the regular mode, as this is a big down side to the dark mode.

I guess there isn't much dark mode users around.

This thread is for the desktop dark mode. There is another thread discussing this particular issue. The mobile dev team is aware of the issue and are working on fixing it.

I probably should've noticed that! I met with the mobile dev lead last week and I know this was something he was personally looking into. Hopefully with the new info you provided he can quickly get to the bottom of this.

As of today, I got a message that Sylish is blocked in Firefox. Yes, you can just re-enable it, but is it known why? Has something changed in FF or in Stylish?

Edit: more info here:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1472948
Stylish has been blocked for your protection.

Why was it blocked?
This add-on violates data practices outlined in the review policy.
Who is affected?
What does this mean?

The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.
When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.

Blocked on Jul 04, 2018. View block request.

I made a thread here to discuss that Stylish has been basically spyware relaying ALL your browsing history and Google search result history to a third party via an auto opt-in feature (unless you specifically disabled it). Has just been banned for Firefox and will probably be banned for Chrome soon.

Robert Heaton posted an in-depth analysis of what Stylish has been doing since early 2017.

You can use Stylus as an alternative.

Now that RFD is under new management , are there any plans to officially incorporate (without the use of 3rd party apps) a Night mode layout?

RFD REALLY needs a "night mode" it's way too bright white. Website visual ergonomics has changed drastically since the dinosaur days when white on red was a great idea.
