light theme for firefox

a. This

b. or that

GTK_THEME=Adapta firefox

c. or make browser in your ~/bin with something like (assuming we want Adapta, which is a light version of Adapta-Nokto)


if cat $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 | grep Adapta-Nokto ; then
    echo "mkay"
    GTK_THEME=Adapta /usr/bin/firefox "$@"
    echo "just using what's there"
    /usr/bin/firefox "$@"

d. or dev theme, which is dark, but does look reasonable

All ^ ugly workarounds. What’s the global launcher-independent solution?


cp /usr/share/applications/firefox-esr.desktop ~/.local/share/applications
chmod +x # it

Edit exec line (add ‘env GTK_THEME=Adapta’) to look like

Exec=env GTK_THEME=Adapta /usr/lib/firefox-esr/firefox-esr %u


update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications

^ This misses any decision logic, fail as well.

f. Supposed to work, but doesn’t

GTK_THEME=:light firefox-esr
