Glaring white loading page, can it be changed?

Postby Thehandyman1957 » Mon, 11 Sep 2017, 01:20

Since moving to PM 27.4.2 I have noticed that the pre load page is now white instead of black like it was on 26.5.0

Is there a way to change this color to something not so glaring?

The reason I ask is because I use a lot of dark colors on my browser and I change most of my web backgrounds to a medium gray
and when I open a new site it shows this bright white blank page while it searches and starts to load and it kills my eyes. :shock:

It's like someone shining a bright flashlight in my eyes every time I open a page. :problem:

It would be nice to set this to something a bit darker. 8-)

Go to "Content" options. Click "Colors" and choose background and foreground colors.

Code: Select all

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

browser
{
  background-color: #000000 !important;
}

Put that in your userchrome.css or make a Stylish style for it. This seems to work for me -- what the poster above mentioned probably works too.

I’m using PM on Linux and it opens a dark grey page when it starts loading a web page. It may be because it uses my system theme which is a dark theme… Perhaps if you change your system theme it will help.

Man, that is soooo much better. Perfect, Thank you. :thumbup: :clap:

As for going to options and clicking on colors, that is for the actual web pages, not the short white page that pops up while loading.

you can also accomplish the same thing as 0N10NKN16H7's method by going to about:config and changing the value of the preference browser.display.background_color to a value of your choosing. be aware though that doing this will 'break' sites that don't have CSS, like this

Use "Advanced Night Mode" add-on by JustOff.

This only works for actual web pages, not brief white loading screen from PM.

Thanks though.

For web pages I use
Color That Site! 0.16.1-signed.1-signed


It's much more customizable and allows me to see the web pages in some sort of normal fashion but in

easier on the eye color schemes. :thumbup:
