Hmmm.. I've supposed to have fixed this problem. Unfortunately I can only suppose, since I myself don't use Thunderbird at all.
Could you point me to how I can get this window? I've tried sending an invitation from Outlook but I've only received a winmail.dat file...

I think you actually fixed the problem with alarms, which was a similar issue I believe; it's the invitations that still have the light-colored font. I see this because I get invites from other Thunderbird users who are on the same corporate email system, but I found a way to reproduce this with Gmail accounts.

Do you have a Gmail account? If you do, you can install this plugin (along with Lightning) and connect to a Gmail account. Then from another Gmail account, invite that user to a meeting. You'll see the invitation pop-up.

If this is too much work, no problem; I seem to be the only one reporting this issue right now. If I get a chance, I will try to check out the add-in to see if I can find where the issue is.

Hi ShareBird,

Your theme (extension) is great but I have a problem with one add-on which is CompactHeader 1.1.6beta2 .... It does not work simply :(
Second thing is working with abimtb add-on (adds addressbook icon to tab mode like lightning adds). Normally there is icon and after installing your theme icon disappear but still one can click and start addressbook...

If you could comment these bugs and if possible some solutions :)

Thank you very much for your help :)

Brgds,

P.S.
I am using this version of your theme http://www.silvermel.de/dev/xpi/silverm ... _r3370.xpi

It does not work or have "small" problems?

What I'm seeing in your screenshots is the intended appearance. Go to "View" > "Headers" > "All" and compare with the default theme and you will notice what I'm doing there...

This add-on does absolutely nothing, has only three lines of css and is able to make things wrong...

Seems to be quite ok (except the icon lost) when Today pane from Lightning is hidden ... so it could be resolution problem
But on the other hand standard theme works ...

OK, simple: Silvermel doesn't support Header Design Inc.
For your first screenshot: could you try to make the window a little bit wider?
For the lack of icon, the same case as abimtb extension, the developer points to a graphic that exists on the default theme but not necessarily on third-party themes. Look, I've expended a lot of time to make my themes work with Compact Header more or less nice. I could try to fix this writing extra code for the extension (again) as I patiently do until now. But I'm really annoyed, you know? If extension developers intend their extensions to work only with the default theme, if they don't care about third-party themes, why should I care about them? If it "works" with the default theme it's because they want explicitly that the extension work with the default theme. Why is this my fault?
It has been very difficult to me to make the theme for Thunderbird because I myself don't use Thunerbird, don't use Lightning, Compact Header MagicSLR and so on. If I do this is only because users... But, sincerely, I'm loosing the mood to further work on the Thunderbird theme.

For your second screenshot:

wabik, I'm sorry to vent... But, really, 70% the time we theme developers invest writing themes are used to fix things that extensions break that should never break at all.
