found using 2004082404-0.8 tbird bits on linux fedora core 1 (also saw on core 2). the twistes are invisible in the Advanced preferences panel. not a problem on Mac OS X or Windows XP. to observed, open the Preferences (Options) dialog and go to the Advanced panel. look at the left side of the righthand panel, and notice that there are no twisties next to any of the headings: * Privacy * General Settings * Saved Passwords * Certificates * Offline and Connection Settings * Return Receipts * Software Update as a workaround, you can mouseover the left edge near each heading: once the pointer changes into the hand, you can click the invisible twisty to toggle it.
I assume you were using the default theme sairuh?
Target Milestone: --- → Thunderbird0.9
> I assume you were using the default theme sairuh? yes, I'm using the default theme (Arvid Axelsson's). let me know if you'd like me to check this with other themes.

Jeroen, does this patch really fix it? Thunderbird uses the qute theme and shouldn't be building anything from the gnomestripe directory. It seems weird to me that it would be picking anything up from there....
Created attachment 158250 [details] [diff] [review] possible (untested) fix Your patch pointed me in the right direction. It looks like the ifdefs in this make file were causing us to build gnomestripe on linux even though there is no *stripe theme for thunderbird windows and linux builds. I'm not sure what effect this change may have on linux looking UI within thunderbird if we stop building this directory. Care to give this patch a spin?
Thanks for looking into this problem Scott. I will build a new Thunderbird tonight (old machine, it takes some time) and will report tomorrow (GMT +0200) if this patch works.
The patch is working fine. I only noticed one change, the selection in the menu's do not follow the setting of my Gnome theme, but this is a good thing because it shows Gnomestripe is not included.
Created attachment 158473 [details] [diff] [review] better fix this fix should allow us to keep the gnomestripe specific style rules for linux unlike my earlier patch.

I will verify this path as soon as I am home, but his will not be before Monday or Thuesday.
Not sure my comment is still wanted as I see this bug is FIXED, but I had a look at the last patch. I checked my own build and the offical 0.8 release. All linux specific style rules are back and I can see twisties in the adv. pref. window. These twisties are not the same as they were before in Qute, but they are gnomestripe style. Not sure this is wanted, but at least they are visible again.
looks great with the 0.8 bits (20040913, linux fedora core 2). thanks!
