Hi there I must say having used Thunderbird for probably ten or more years that V115 has been a big pain in the butt to get used to. Why change everything? It was fine before.

OK I can get used to a completely different layout and changed menus even though I don;'t want to but I cannot figure out how to change the background from solid black which I hate. I have spent several days on and off looking for an easy way to do this and can't find it.

So now I go to write an email and the black screen doesn't show anything with black letters of course?? What is the reason for this? So I have to change font over and over to white color.

When I read new emails no problem background is white and font is black like a normal screen. Who had this bright idea?? Please give me a simple solution not involving Css whatever programming such stuff I cannot figure out and don't want to learn. Thanks so much

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

My first suggestion is to click addons from hamburger menu (three horizontal lines in upper right) and then click 'themes' to see which theme is activated. To have black text on white background, click the Light theme and see if that is what you want. I suggest that one, as setting the dark one properly requires a bit of work (at least, it did for me).
