 Probably this?  It's not easy to disable on a per-application basis, and
 I'm fairly sure that attempting to do so without reaching into the guts of
 Gtk+ will make Tor Browser clobber the file (which is rude).

 That said in the sandbox Gtk+ is containerized and already ignores the
 users theming, so I can do something like: https://gitweb.torproject.org
