How can I change the dark-themed IMDB web pages to a light-theme.
I can NOT read light letters on dark or black background. After looking at such a page for about 20 seconds, my eyes start to water and I mostly see ghost images of letters. I have to close the page and look away.
There is nothing "new" or "cool" about light letters on dark backgrounds. It is how all CRTs used to be back in the 70's and 80's.
And for those of us with sensitive or older eyes, having IMDB pages display only in light colored letters on dark backgrounds is just Useless, Pointless, and plain Mean.

This problem issue of too many dark background pages also exists in the 'new' IMDB app for IOS.

Please Please Please provide a way to change it back to traditional dark letters on light background.
Or at least an option to choose a light background theme.

I know it is programmatically possible (I used to be a mainframe coder years back), as the older app releases and web presentation of IMDB were all traditional light themed (dark letters, light background). And many of the IMDB pages are still in traditional light-theme style.

Thank you for your kind consideration of your many users who require light-theme pages and cannot read dark-theme (light letters) pages.

Just spent a few minutes in the settings and there is no way to change anything but the resolution.
Standard
480P
720p HD
You are stuck with the black theme as was I

You give up a lot of functionality using phones. That's why if I'm Going anywhere where I can watch videos, I bring my Fire and connect by hotspot to my phone. I wont even use craigslist on my phone. The tablet is superior.
