Moin Moin.
Upon subscribing, e.g., "http://www.wissenschaft.de/rss/1.0/news.rdf"
all messages displayed, use a fixed Background colour rendering the result unreadable (e.g. for "http://www.wissenschaft.de/wissen/news/rss/274268.html").
Using "tools"/"options"/"display"/"formatting" in order to set another Background colour does not help either.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open "tools"/"account settings"/"add account"/"rss news and weblogs", hit next, twice, hit finish, hit ok.
2.open the new account-inbox "News & Blogs" and open some feedwindow.
3.the background colour will be white, regardless of the "tools"/"options"/"display"/"formatting"/"Background colour" setting, which is a problem on higher resolution displays (1920*1200 Pixels).
Actual Results:  
background colour will be white

Expected Results:  
background colour should be gray (or, whatever the user entered at "tools"/"options"/"display"/"formatting"/"Background colour").

In mozilla/firebird it works perfectly, after a switch "use my colours ignoring the colour and the background image specified" has been set.

Locate the preference
  browser.display.use_document_colors
Set it to False.  (This is the same preference in Firefox that gets set with that checkbox.)

Alternately, when you subscribe to the feed, select "Show the article summary...".
