Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150525141253

Steps to reproduce:

1. Enable a high-contrast in Windows. To do it, do the following:
1.1. Go to the desktop.
1.2. Right-click on an empty space on the desktop and from the pop-up menu choose "Personalize".
1.3. From the list of available themes, choose "High-Contrast Black", by single left-clicking on it.
2. Launch Thunderbird. I'm running the latest stable version - 38.0.1 on a Windows 8.1 64-bit machine.
3. If you don't have an account for blogs and news feeds, create one.
4. In the folder pane on the right, right-click on a folder for RSS and choose "Subscribe" from the pop-up context menu. The "Feeds subscriptions" window will appear.


Actual results:

The color of the background below the folders pane is white, making the labels for the controls there invisible.


Expected results:

The color of the background below the folders pane should be black, as it is defined in the currently used theme in Windows.

Actually there is a fixed color to make the box darker, on Yosemite it's almost not visible on my screen, on Linux and Windows it's better visible.

I'm using now a rgba transparency to make it a bit darker.
