A great international dark theme pertaining to the internet
Dark Mode is definitely a browser add-on that helps you quickly change the screen (browser) to dark at night period.

Toolbar button serves while an ON|OFF switch which in turn permits you to quickly and quickly turn the extension ON or AWAY. If you do certainly not like the current darker theme (dark theme #1), please visit the choices page and select a distinct theme from the twenty options available.

There's also a white-list feature which permits you to exclude an ideal domain from dark method. Simply add domain(s) for the designated area (comma separated) and the websites is going to be excluded from nighttime mode.
Risk impact

Dark Reader requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Dark Reader if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Dark Reader has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

After about 3-4 years using this extension. I'd like to thank to MengYiDev; the developers for inventing this great ext. This ext. works best for me, the best one I can find from the store. The main reason I switch from Waterfox Classic to ME. *It works as promise, change bright b/g to darker b/g, never disappointed. *There are many options of darker tone to be chosen, and there is one theme of b/g that suit for me, it is dark grey + brighter green highlight (for visited links). *The extension performance is also great. I can't notice any slowdown in ME's web browsing. *Never distort any web content; can apply dark mode to Facebook, Google, Gmail, Yahoo, etc. smoothly, no mess up. *Highly recommend for those who never tried. Please keep on this brilliant work, I need to have it.
