Thunderbird 78 Dark Mode messes up emails - we need a switch to disable it.

After upgrading Thunderbird from v68 to v78 over the weekend, everything looked fine, but then I realized some emails display badly with Windows 10 running in Dark mode. Changing the Windows settings to display apps in Light mode doesn't help (and make other parts of Windows Light instead of Dark mode).

What I'm trying to find in about:config is a flag to tell Thunderbird to run in Light mode as I can't see many of my emails. I can highlight the body, but that's just a lame workaround.

First image show how the text is unreadable because Thunderbird only changed the background layout, but not the text; Image on the right I highlighted the whole email so I could read the text.

I saw other suggestions that either require meddling with some .css file quite heavily, or installing some add-on that doesn't fix the problem.

We just need a configuration flag to prevent Thunderbird from using the Windows Dark Mode (or more generic, one that doesn't follow the Windows Light or Dark mode on us).

Thank you developers.

Hi, I want to backup my Gmail on Thunderbird so all the email is held locally on my PC with the intention of closing the Gmail account in month or so. I have added the Gmail account to latest Thunderbird in my Windows 10 PC and I see if I delete an email from Gmail.com that same email deletes in my Thunderbird inbox. Is there a way to download all the emails but keep a copy so that if emails are deleted remotely at Gmail.com they aren't deleted from the Thunderbird inbox. I ultimately want to close my Gmail account and delete the data but be able to access the local copies using Thunderbird going forward should I need some old info. Thanks

Hi all

I a trying to add my Yandex account to thunderbird but I cannot get it to work. I activated application password in my yandex account so that part is covered. The problem comes when logging in through Thunderbird, it opens a browser window for me to login, the problem is that because of cookie settings it doesn't let me go forward in that authentication (see attachment). I guess the yandex website requires certain settings to work because it rejects my login. Because of this I cannot make it work.

I tried changing th default browser for Thunderbird but the settings in mac does't seem to help. I changed the settings from the below to TRUE but still cannot open the page in another browser network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https

Any ideas on how to go around this?

Thank you in advance!

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

With the upgrade to 78, the buttons within the read mail sub-window are driving me crazy. In the past, I had a single button that defaulted to 'reply all', 'reply list' or 'reply' based on how I received the mail. Thus, if it had multiple recipients, clicking it would cause 'reply all' without having to think about it. Now, I have separate buttons and the first one is the basic 'reply', so by habit, I am dropping people off the conversation. I miss the smart reply button! So, I thought I would just go and rearrange the button order, but I can't find any way to move, eliminate or change the buttons in this sub-window. I can change the buttons in the main email bars, but not the ones in the read-mail window. Am I missing something? (FWIW, I have been using Tbird and FireFox since 1999. These last few releases are making me seriously consider if it is time to start looking for a new email and browser. Even Outlook is starting to look good to me again. Please stop deleting things. I don't mind new things 'fancy' things being added, but when you kill old features that we have been using for years, it drives us nuts.) Tony

When I start Thunderbird in secure mode (Hilfe / mit deaktivierten Addons starten), then everything seems correct. When I manually deactivate all addons, the Labels are again invisible.

After having been upgraded to TB version 78, I've spent the last hour and a half reading through the community help areas and agreeing with users who say their important extensions don't work with Ver. 78 and I want to go back! I've read about "download ver. 68" and follow these X-steps.

Well, I'm stumped at simply trying to locate Ver. 68! I've searched every way I know, and all I find is Ver. 68.12.0 Release Notes. Nowhere can I find "download".

Feel pretty stupid right now if I can't even FIND the Ver. 68 file!

Can someone please direct me to the download file?

Oh, and once I find the file, I read that I'm supposed to uninstall Ver. 78 and then install Ver. 68. What happens to all my emails if I uninstall ver. 78? Won't uninstalling 78 delete them?

TIA, Sewlady
