Hi,

since the last update of Thunderbird version 31 the address part in the compose window has a blue background.
How can I set it back to white?

Thanks
Konrad

You can try the link below. Add the codes to userChrome.css.

Thanks. I tried it, changed the userChrome.css code a little bit and now it looks nearly similar as familiar.


userChome.css

/* ::::: From: msgIdentity box ::::: */
#msgIdentity {
background-color: -moz-Field !important;
transition: border .0s, background-color .0s !important;
border-radius: 2px !important;
}

@media not all and (-moz-windows-default-theme) {
#msgIdentity {
border-width: 0px !important;
}

#msgIdentity:hover,
#msgIdentity[focused="true"] {
background-color: -moz-Field !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}
}


/* ::::: To, Cc, Bcc button ::::: */

@media not all and (-moz-windows-default-theme) {
.aw-menulist {
margin-top: 0px !important;
-moz-margin-end: 4px !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
background-color: rgba(128, 128, 128, .15) !important;
transition: background-color .05s ease-in !important;
}

.aw-menulist:hover {
background-color: rgba(128, 128, 128, .3) !important;
}

.aw-menulist[open="true"] {
background-color: rgba(128, 128, 128, .05) !important;
}

.aw-menulist:-moz-window-inactive {
opacity: .7 !important;
}
}

.aw-menulist > .menulist-label-box {
margin: 1px 0 -1px 0 !important;
}


/* ::::: addressing widget ::::: */

#textcol-addressingWidget {
background-color: -moz-Field !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}

.textbox-addressingWidget {
margin-bottom: 0px !important;
margin-bottom: 0px !important;
transition: border .0s, background-color .0s !important;
}

.dummy-row-cell:not(:first-child) {
margin-bottom: 0px !important;
}

@media not all and (-moz-windows-default-theme) {
.textbox-addressingWidget {
background-color: transparent !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}

.dummy-row-cell:not(:first-child) {
background-color: transparent !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}

.textbox-addressingWidget:hover,
.textbox-addressingWidget[focused="true"] {
background-color: transparent !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}
}


/* ::::: subject box ::::: */

#subject-box {
margin-top: 1px !important;
}

#msgSubject {
background-color: -moz-Field !important;
transition: border .0s, background-color .0s !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}

@media not all and (-moz-windows-default-theme) {
#msgSubject {
border-width: 0px !important;
}

#msgSubject:hover,
#msgSubject[focused="true"] {
background-color: -moz-Field !important;
border-width: 0px !important;
}
}

Hello, Bozz:

I appreciate your time on this as well. Hopefully small question - how do I change the color for the borders between the addresses? Also, is it possible to change the border colors for the box that renders when you place your cursor on an address line? I have a screenshot that I can send you via email if I have not described the elements correctly.

I am well versed in CSS code. If you don't have time to check on the above, where I do get the CSS code used in Thunderbird so I can perform my own experiments?

Thanks!

Bozz

Yeah...you're gonna need to post a screenshot. I'm not really sure what you are asking about.

Posting a screenshot on the forum

What the hell were they thinking????
Why on earth have they made the address & subject lines blue? It's terrible UI design.

A major change like that should ALWAYS have an "I don't like it" option to switch back, and -- if the designers have any sense -- they'd monitor its use to get feedback on their decision. But no! We must put up with the Apple-style "I'm the designer and I know what you want" Nazism. Grrr.
