◆ Dark mode of leader view
Firefox has a feature called ' Reader View ' that displays only the text in blogs and articles. To switch to reader view, click on the text icon displayed in the address bar on the corresponding page. You can set the leader view to the dark mode by clicking the 'Aa' icon from the menu on the left of the leader view and selecting 'dark'. Previously, only the body part was displayed dark in the dark mode, but from Firefox 68 the sidebar is also displayed dark.

It is OK if the theme written 'Dark' is activated.
