First they got rid of favorites

Now even the dark mode is broken, it’s not working properly

Did they hire monkeys to update the iOS app? Things were working fine a few months ago, now this app has gone downhill big time.

No, dark mode is not working. When I open a website it’s turned off even though I leave it turn on all the time. To fix this issue I have to then turn off and turn on, so the website will after that appear to have a dark background.

Here’s proof, dark mode enabled and I visit for example CNN

First image of how the site appears to me

Now look at the proof dark mode is already enabled

And what happens when I disable it

Finally look what happens when I re enable dark mode

The last image is how CNN should have appeared to me when I visited for the first time.

Is that clear now? It wasn’t like that before. They messed with this feature just like they did by hiding favorites.

And this dark mode issue also happens with iOS 13.

I am using iOS 12.3.1 and the iPad Pro 10.5.

I see what you're saying now - it is hosed. I had pretty much quit using Firefox as I prefer the bookmarks bar visible in Safari.
