Hi
My selected theme won't display, but it shows active in my add-ons manager list. how do I get it to display instead of the blank white default?

Thank you.

What is the name of the theme?
What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.
"Terry Pratchett"

Black piano

But it loaded this time when I tried. I have no idea why no themes would load earlier this pm after reinstalling firefox. Restarting to finish add-ons didn't help. But turning pc off altogether, dinner, and now firefox is behaving itself. Go figure.

Note that a lightweight theme might not work if you are in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

I don't use private browsing. i do use and consult my browse history--I'm a researcher. Beats bookmarking sites I don't need long term. I just prune history via Ctrl-H every few days. Doesn't take long.
