  1. The problem is that “Dark Mode (WebExtension)” is just one out of many, such as “dark-facebook 2” on GitHub…

    The latter homepage has a lazy “Fork me on GitHub” diagonal banner, which has the entire triangle as a link (as opposed to just the strip :)) and that’s besides the last update being from 2015.

    That first one is advertised as “A global dark theme for the web”, instead of just FB and it’s over half-a-meg when unpacked (absolutely huge); so, not even sure *what* to use. πŸ™‚

  2. I know this is older, but somewhat still relevant …
    Is there any reason you don’t mention or recommend the ‘Stylus’ plugin? There are plenty of great css themes on userstyles.org (I even have quite a few there, though I haven’t made any for FB) and many are updated often to keep up with site styles. And it’s more than easy to use. With Stylus (or older Stylish?) you can theme most sites and there are plenty of great dark themes for most. Someone mentioned ‘dark-facebook 2’ which is primarily on Userstyles.org, I didn’t even know it had a GitHub repo (although I should’ve assumed).
