I modified reader.color_scheme at about:config and it worked flawlessly on both my home and work PCs, but not on the phone, it just stays white.

I’m using Fennec F-Droid btw, which is basically a fork that just removes the tiny proprietary bits from the browser, and is manteined by the FF devs themselves as far as I’m concerned.

when you open a webpage in ‘reader’ mode, press on the firefox menu button in the toolbar, there should be an option called ‘Customize reader view’. It only appears if you have reader view open for some reason

Oh, wow, I am almost mad at how easy that was lmao, thanks.

Any idea when that rolled out? My searchings for a solution a month ago didn’t bring any mention of it, and I can’t say for sure I specifically paid attention to any changes on the menu when in reader mode.

Definitely been there for more than a month already. I’d say at least six months, but probably more.

Unfortunately, Firefox For Android never was terribly widely used and they had to do a major rewrite twice already, so yeah, things may not be documented quite as thoroughly.
