Change the lamp button to activate not the dark layer but the Dark Mode website?
The default action for the lamp button. That is to dim the web page, and highlight the video player if it is available on the web page. However, you can customize everything on the Turn Off the Lights Options page. Turn Off the Lights is a multimedia tool for everything about light ;-). That includes changing the stylesheet of the website from light to your personal dark theme. Also, you can change the lamp button action to activate the Night Mode on and off without the use of the night switch on the bottom of the web page. That is called the ‘Night Owl’ profile, see this YouTube video tutorial on this page:
