Here's mine. Yes, I'm a villain.

White theme

I've been using a light theme since I got irked from tabbing from a dark themed editor into light coloured websites in the middle of the night with lights off. My eyes can't handle the total colour change. Most websites doesn't have night mode so I chose to be a villain. (White theme!)

Browser addons to the rescue - try "Dark background light text" for Firefox.

I also use PaperColor for my VS Code and Vim.
Long live light theme!!

Thank you! PaperColor is almost what I was looking for. It has some minor low contrast issues (mostly with 3rd party extensions), but I love it

You've inspired me to become a villain and use a light theme from now on!

That’s the only reason I was excited for Apple’s Dark Mode announcement —Hopefully I can poke around on my MBP at night without being blinded

First off, props for being a villain and proud. We need more like you around.

That said, if you would like to try the dark side again, I recommend looking into Dark Reader. I'm not sure if they have a Firefox version or not, but I use it on Chrome and it's a lifesaver. An easy click will turn the dark version off or on for any site.
