Websites can know android accent color?

Andoird 12, tried with Firefox and Mull browser.
Go to → select options.
The accent color there is the same as your android accent color.
Change your wallpaper/accent color, and then go that page again, and it knows your phone’s accent color.

GrapheneOS and DivestOS have an option to disable wallpaper based theming.

edit: this has been confirmed to not be an issue

This seems to be something that can be done via (if available), some tweaking in the browser configs. But as the OP mentions, I am sure the answer is not to move to a different OS like the other comment.

Ohhokay! But does the web server knows/can know my accent color or is it just client side?

Yes, the website can collect the colors.

edit: correction: the website can collect a default fallback color, but not the specific colors you see

Maybe this does the trick:

Go to about:config and search for layout.css.accent-color.enabled.
Set this value to false.


Ooh nice one!

For Mull changing widget.non-native-theme.use-theme-accent does fix it!
I’ll make that default next release.
