If Mozilla Firefox is your default browser and you want to add more color to your Windows 10 experience, then you should try out this new dynamic theme for Firefox Quantum.

This colorful theme colorizes the title bar, tabs, and URL bar based on your Windows accent color.

Its author initially created it to work with just dark colors. He explained that while he was making the script to get the system accent colors, he realized that the only way to create variations was to create transparent layers of black over top. In other words, he accidentally discovered that this would work with other themes as well. You can see the result in the screenshot below.

The theme works with any accent colors. However, keep in mind that the font might sometimes look a bit strange on very light colors. Also, you should use accent colors that are dark enough in order to enable better contrast between the text color and the background. Otherwise, these two might conflict.

It is worth mentioning that this new theme works on all operating systems.

As far as user feedback is concerned, this theme already has a large number of fans.

Honestly, this is something I kept thinking about for a long time, it’s an awesome idea, and really well done, it works really nice! Thanks for your time and effort.

Of course, there is still room for improvement. For example, the browser color changes when the browser is not in focus. This is how the browser looks like when in focus.

But when I opened Windows 10’s Settings page, that beautiful green color simply turned into dark blue. I actually thought it would remain green irrespective of what I was doing on the computer.

If you’re interesting in installing this dynamic Firefox theme, you can download it from the browser’s add-on page.
