New tabs still flash white before turning dark, so default newtab remains white. Still a great, simple add-on that doesn't require a large, suspect download to work. Update 2019-10-11: Setting "browser.in-content.dark-mode" to True and restarting Firefox may avoid the white flash issue for some, but it doesn't seem to improve my experience under Windows 7. The Blank Dark Tab developer, Dan, has found that this issue is further resolved in the Firefox Nightly builds at the time of this update. Thanks to Dan for the great response, which might be visible below.
