- Rated 2 out of 5by Leo, 5 days agoVery useful but its really affecting Firefox's performance with its resource demands!
This is the second time I installed and uninstalled it because I noticed how much it kept slowing down Firefox!
- Rated 2 out of 5by Nocturne, 2 months agoI still remember how great it was when it could actually auto-detect site theme without relying on OS theme...
And there are STILL bug when if you switch auto -> on -> auto that it'll discard saved options and will default to "OS theme" even tho it's not even checked
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 15848924, 2 months agollevaba usando esta extensión años. Pero he detectado que cada vez que se usa esta extensión los requerimientos de potencia a las GPU son enormes. Os invito a abrir una web con un numero importante de enlaces. y abrir en paralelo la monitorizacion de la carga en la GPU. activar y desactivar dark reader moviendose hacia arriba y hacia abajo en la propia web(sin necesidad de click nada) y comparar como de un 20% pasamos a un 80% en la carga de la GPU (mi grafica es una RX6700XT) .
- Rated 2 out of 5by ChefExperte, 3 months agoWhile it works on some pages, it breaks many pages for no reason. Some buttons cannot be clicked anymore, some text blocks disappear, ui elements get moved around and other problems. On the most recent Firefox version some tabs just constantly crash. Nice idea for a plugin, but it does not work...
- Rated 2 out of 5by HaricotsDeLiam, 5 months agoAutomation is broken when used on Firefox for macOS. When the extension is set to follow the system dark theme and macOS is set to "Auto" instead of "Light" or "Dark", Dark Reader mistakenly thinks the system is set to "Light" no matter what time of day it is.
Downloading any of the past 25 older versions of the extension doesn't resolve the problem.
The Chrome version of this extension has no such issues.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 17998462, 7 months agoLately it interferes with too many websites. So many sites, especially for news, use the "read more" button to see beyond the first paragraph or so, but I can't click it. I have to disable this addon before it works. I wish dark mode were more of the default across the web because it's so much better for your eyes.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Chris Grimmett, 7 months agoDark Reader has one of the most confusing user interfaces I have used. It is completely unfamiliar to any other software I use on a regular basis. I can't tell if any of the settings are in the on/off enabled/disabled state due to ambiguous design. For example, a button shows either x or ✓. Does x on the button mean I'm switching to x by clicking or does it mean x is the current state? Another toggle uses a left/right instead of x and ✓. A third type of button uses x and ✓ but it's only on the left side. Then there's the light/dark flat buttons which I fail to differentiate. Does light mean pressed or does dark mean pressed? There is a complete lack of predictability and logic and I can't understand how I'm supposed to use it. I'm looking for an alternative extension.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Alonzo, 7 months agoI use Firefox 115 and found out that this extension is the reason for all the problems I've been having with Firefox lately, which are extremely sluggish performance, slow loading of all websites, worst of all Youtube. And Outlook.live.com stopped working at all. After uninstalling "Dark Reader" Firefox is now super fast again and even Outlook and Youtube are working flawlessly. I'm now using "Dark background and light text" which does not cause any problems.
