Since my earlier post did not result in any responses, I'm taking a different path.

Having upgraded from 68.x to 91.x on Windows 7, the white text on black theme is broken. An example is the MozillaZine page. The main backgound is fine. Its other elements that are problemaatic for me. The background the list of forums are on is white which makes it hard to rwad. The forum names themselves are fine. If this makes sense, can someone tell me what setting in about:config to look for so I can change the color? Thank you.

You could try this: change "layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override" in 'about:config' to: Dark (0), light (1), system (2) or browser (3).

Unable to find this setting, tried partial searches too.

You could also try creating this preference as a number: ui.systemUsesDarkTheme For dark mode you want 1. (0 for light)

Alright, hopefully this works. First time I've done this. These are a couple examples where FF91 has the issue and FF68 is what I want in Firefox 91.

91 does not have alternative "themes" (cough), "appearances" as does 100.
So is this an extension you are using (or something I'm not seeing)?

Only two active extensions. One is for 1Password and the other is Defailt Bookmarks.

And just one active theme, System Theme.

When you say "System Theme", are you talking about a Windows (7) theme or is that a FF theme?

No link. System Theme, Light Theme, Dark Theme. All three appear to be built in and are developed by Mozilla.
