Use preference and set color for bacground. It applies to some windows (e.g about mozilla) but not to any menu (especially bookmark menu of the sidebar). This is also true for main mail window.
what skin are you using? if classic then the color /might/ be picked up from gtk (but it might not). for modern, the skin sets the theme. the bookmarks sidebar is a chrome application, not a web page, so there's no reason for the color you specify for web documents to apply to it. We might want to alter the description of that pref pane to more clearly indicate that it only affects browsing....

I disagree with your last comment. The default background color should apply to the entire windows, not only HTML pages. It for examples apply for the mail windows. The HTML display may put its own color which is fair. I want to specify the default windows background color for all applications. BTW : I'm using the modern theme.
the background pref should actually apply to all window content areas (and tree) in the application, as well as the text pref.
confirmed with RC1 - bookmark-sidebar not affected by setting, HTML-based sidebars are.
