Fonts for Firefox with a white background

#1

Post by pourpier » Sat Dec 29, 2018 7:55 am

Hello,

When the background in Firefox is white the text is difficult to read. I tried several fonts without success.
I already use a dark theme for DuckDuckGo, the dark mode of YouTube and a dark mode for Gmail and Firefox.
Do you have a font to recommend when the background is white so that the text is easily readable?
When in dark mode I have no issue, it is only when the background is white.
I already decreased the brightness with a mitigated result
Best regards,
pourpier

It's an theming issue, rather than a font issue.
You might try using MX Tweak -> Theme -> Firefox dark theme tweak
In addtion I'm using sometimes in Firefox "Dark Background and Light Text"
Dark Background and Light Text wrote:Makes every page (or only pages that you want) to have light text on dark background. Exact colors are customizable.

I already have the checkbox for Firefox dark theme tweak on true /v
I will try your other suggestion. The second one works fine. I'll have to tweak it as there are many options.
Thanks a lot.
Best regards.
