Since the latest upgrade to Thunderbird version 52.4 I can no longer change the color in the text. It lets me selected the color but it ignores it! :twisted:
It seems with every upgrade new features introduced new Bugs are being introduced as well! :evil:
It's the same problem as well when starting up in safe mode. :x

Works for me (using Format -> Text Color). Try changing the color of some text, selecting the message body and then use Insert -> HTML to view the HTML tags and verify it inserted the font color tags. For example:

abc <font color="#33cc00">def</font> ghi <font color="#cc6600">jkl <font
color="#000000">mno pqr</font></font>

has def in green and jkl in brown

Nope. No go!
Totally non functional.
Insert Html shows the code but the text color is still unchanged

I suggest you try using custom setup to install a beta build of Thunderbird in a different directory and see if it has the same problem. It should use the existing profile. Since you don't have this problem in safe mode, it works for me and I haven't noticed similar threads, it sounds like a very configuration specific bug.
