    Firefox color scheme changed in 10162 upgrade? :(


    Hello, I was wondering if anyone here is using Firefox as their browser for Windows 10. When I was on build 10158 and I installed Firefox this was the default scheme. A light greyish that was easy on the eyes.

    Now since I couldn't pull the upgrade for 10162 I did a separate VM install of 10162 ISO so I have 2 VM's currently running side by side. On this new updated version of Windows firefox defaulted everything to white instead of that nice grey, which is really hard on the eyes. No customizing of the browser on either version of Windows. This is what it looks like now.

    It is very hard on the eyes with this all white. I prefered the grey better. I actually liked it in previous versions of Windows where the color of FF would match your color scheme of Windows. In Windows 8 I have blue so Firefox is blue, it seems to not be able to customize the Title bar in this version of Windows. All black and white.

    Can anyone help or post tips or experience the same?
    Thanks

    I guess this has to do somewhat with the death of the colored title bars in Windows since 10061 build?

    I was talking about the default color, which now is white since the default color is white of the W10 title bar, that is what I forgot to mention and I figured out, because it was very late and I was so tired when I made the post. In W7 or W8 when you change your theme in Windows (the color) Firefox changes color to reflect your color choice of Windows. In W10 it does not, it stays at the default white which is the color of W10. You have to download a theme addon to FF, which I never have in my entire life. I wanted it to be blue like the color of my Win10 Startmenu.

    EDIT:

    I fixed it without the use of themes for firefox. It was Windows fault because of the all white title bars. Once I patched the title bars to colored ones the problem went away. Now it looks great.

    There was a new release of Firefox recently (39.0), are you sure the theme didn't change with the new version, and you're attributing it to the wrong source?
