Hi all -

Just upgraded to TB 78 on Windows 10 x64, Build 2004. Noticed two major things:

Issue 1 -

All of the mail folder icons are no longer yellow. Just a stark white with a black edge. I attached an Image of the issue for review.

Issue 2 -

My Message Composition Pane is dark with white letters and most incoming text mail is the same.

I do have some dark colors set up under PC Settings -> Personalization but everything was working perfectly prior to this new release.

I attached Images of the issue for review. Note the "dark haze" over the HTML email.

No add-ons are enabled!

Any help appreciated! Kind of urgent to me.

TIA :)

Message list panel now has more white space (fewer messages shown) and dangerously confusing hover highlighting v78.3.2

I just upgraded to 78.3.2, and the message list panel now has significantly more spacing, less denstiy. There is more whitespace between lines. And there does not appear to be any option to reset this back to the previous compact view?

EDIT: Adding a note about an additional issue with the message list panel that is discussed in this thread... Prior to v78.3.2, a message/line in the message list pane would not become highlighted until I *clicked* on it. Now, whenever I just pass my mouse over the list, the message under the mouse becomes highlighted (and the last message(s) *selected* also remains highlighted). This results in two or more non-adjacent messages being highlighted in the same way at the same time. This is a poor usability experience and dangerous design that has caused me to perform operations on unintended messages multiple times, even nearly accidentally deleting messages. This usability degradation creates a risk of data loss.

Hi, I would like to highlight the column headers in the message pane, i.e Subject, Recipient, Date, Starred, Attachment etc.

I am running Thunderbird 78.14 for 64-bit in Linux Mint 20.3. I am using the Dark Fox 2.1 Theme.

I have previously succeeded in getting the headers coloured using this in my css file:

  1. threadCols > treecol {
 -moz-appearance: none !important;
 background-image: none !important;
 background-color: #0084D1 !important;
 color: white !important;

font-size:17px !important; font-weight:bold !important; height: 30px !important; }

However, now it suddenly does not work anymore. Can anybody help me troubleshoot what to do to get the colour back? Thanks. Haagen
