Some years ago I came across a dark theme the for Gentoo forum specifically. The link below seems to be same theme iirc but I am wary of 'third party' sites:

https://userstyles.org/styles/6707/dark-gentoo-forums

Are there other options? Perhaps someone has a dark theme to share..

Thanks,

shrike

Quickly glancing over the code it looks safe — no embedded external URLs — and the forums haven't changed in about 15 years. Should be fine as long as you aren't using Stylish (recently in the news for big spyware scandal).

I missed the initial reporting on the Stylish scandal. From what I found just now, it looks like only Stylish for Chrome is affected. Stylish for Firefox, as distributed by addons.mozilla.org, is reported to predate the scandal and thus be unaffected. If this analysis is not correct, I would welcome citations for any problems in the Firefox version.

Ant P. , Hu,

Thanks for alerting me to the spyware risk of the Stylish addon. Apparently, there is a opt-out option wrt tracking. But there is now a fork of Stylish addon called Stylus which seems more transparent.

Stylus (Beta):
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/styl-us/?src=ss

A thread about Stylish:
https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/54804/does-stylish-still-have-spyware-adware

Thanks,

shrike

Didn't know about that fork, thanks for sharing. I had this installed, it gets the job done but it's horrible to use.
