- by Firefox user 15027795, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Really, really, really bad performance on every website. If you like the speed of your browsing to go back to Dial Up ages, install this Extension.
Also, I don't understand why half of the options do not work. "Ignore-List", as you called it, does not work. On multiple occasions I try to add a domain, and it still does not ignore it and still makes it dark.
Also, why isn't there an option to enable this only on the website you are, and not everything on the web. If you want this extension on, you either have to turn it on for all, and then fiddle with that buggy not-working "ignore-list". Can't it be a "Whitelist", to be used by the extension, not an "Ignore List". This is the stupidest implementation of a feature I have ever seen. Why can't I choose the sites I want this enabled for, and I instead I have to choose for which I want it disabled. There are a lot of sites that have dark mode features built into them, and I have to go through every one of those, add them to the ignore list, and then find out that the ignore list does nothing. What a waste of precious time...
All in all, I slowed down my performance for weeks now because of this shoddy extension. There are other extensions that are simpler and faster and will do the same thing but will actually work without making your every day tasks a living hell.
I have actually been following this since a lot of time, and it has gotten worse now. The developer clearly likes to put on fancy features that boggle down your hardware resources, instead of making them work.
- by Firefox user 14976090, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5This extension breaks more websites than it fixes. I didn't realize it was this extension that broke Twitch for me. Video stutters, freezing, etc. Many pictures won't load on websites with this on, either. Overall it needs more work/optimization.
- by Firefox user 14973436, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5It does its job, which is to turn dark mode on for all websites. But it really slows down the browser too much.
As another user suggested, I'm using Midnight Lizard now which is more highly customizable and it doesn't slow the browser down as much as Dark Reader.
- by Firefox user 14746604, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Absolute crap, told it to not run on specific websites "Facebook.com" yet it would keep turning on and blocking content, do not download as it does not work properly and it blocks content...

- by Firefox user 14614639, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Extremely poor. Veerrry slow. Completely useless. I've never seen such a slow running software. I do not think this developer has the talent for software programming.
- by JokeDeity, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5I really like Dark Reader in theory, but in practice it's a mess. Most sites open 5x slower now that it's installed and when they do open, they quickly flash the original style in all it's bright white glory before taking a second to sloppily apply the darkness. I have a powerful PC with 16GBs of RAM so I doubt I'm alone on this. Again, I love what it does, just not the time it takes to do it, and I hate being blinded by the initial opening of a site or webpage.
EDIT: Had to lower my score again because it's actually gotten worse, now sites take up to 10 seconds to open and actually give an error that "a script in Dark Reader is causing Firefox to load slowly" (not verbatim). I will have to discontinue use of this for now, which makes me sad because I doubt there are any alternatives as nice as this.
- by Firefox user 14573906, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Let me get this out of the way: It's very well-designed. It does exactly what it says, and it does it in an intelligent way. It actually looks like an official dark mode on every site. The only problem is I can't use it effectively because it murders your CPU and nothing will load. And it's not like I'm on a Pentium 4 that can barely handle Firefox itself, I'm on a $200 hexa-core from 2 years ago running at 3.9 Ghz.
In short, it's well-done, but it's so poorly optimized it's virtually unusable. I would gladly go back to it if I could actually use it.
