https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1266285 <----- an open unsolved question in the Support FORUM.
Attempt to set a background tile image, or color - or attempt to change font foreground color.
I cannot set the foreground colors on text or set a background graphic or color in Thunderbird 60.8.0 (Pretty much the ENTIRE "Page colors and background" panel is not working now.)
When I select the text I wish to turn to red <any color> and click the button to summon the color chooser, I can select a new color, but when I close the color chooser the text color remains black.
I selected a graphic for my background tile and it shows up in the "Page Colors" dialog box (photo attached) ... but not in the display pane OR in the message sent.
Selecting a new background color does nothing, also.
Changing the text default color in the colors and background dialog box has no effect.
When I select text and click the button to change the color - when I choose the color and close the color selector box - I expected the color of the text in the message to change from what it was.
When I select a background graphic tile in the "Page colors and background" dialog - I expected the page to display that background.
When I select a background color I expect the document I'm composing to show that background color.
