Making the Firefox about:blank page dark.
I think this also applies to about:newtab
When opening a new tab in Firefox, the default is to show a search page. I think that's stupid, and so I make it completely blank.
Edit > Preferences > General and for Home Page I type about:blank .
So instead of using the new tab search page, I type my search terms in the location bar. But by default it does an "I'm feeling lucky" search. To change that behaviour, I go to about:config and change
So now the top-right search area is redundant. To remove it, right_click beside the top location bar and select "customize". Drag the top "search" area into the middle area and drop it.
But now I'm left with an about:blank that's bright white. Since my dark theme (still NASA Night Launch ) does not change that colour (perhaps it cannot?) I need to do it myself. Thankfully others have already thought of this:
Get the Stylish add-on.
Add this script:
Done! Just one more thing to save my eyes a little bit. I haven't done much more research on dark themeing, but it's never going to drop off my radar.. so more will trickle through.
I don't know why they bothered with a screenshot.
