Created attachment 600792 [details] screen shot of tbird, chrome, firefox tabs Difficult to determine active tab. Insufficient color contrast. This is on Vista using Vista Windows Classic Theme. Thunderbird 13, default theme.
This depends on the desktop theme. It's ok on Windows 7 Aero but looks like Wayne describes it on Windows Classic and Windows 7 Basic.

Comment on attachment 600813 [details] [diff] [review] Fix the tabs After a giant amount of work getting my Windows build, uh, building, I've finally taken a look at the patch. It seems to fix the problem, and doesn't look horrible, so ui-r=me. ;) >+++ b/mail/themes/qute/mail/tabmail-aero.css So, given that the problem only exists in classic mode, I'm not sure why you're changing tabmail-aero.css. (I've also looked through the various Windows themes, and can't see the difference.) Uh, but I do see the difference in classic mode, and there aren't any changes to tabmail.css, so now I'm _really_ confused. If you can explain that (and I'm happy with the explanation), then I'll change to an r+, but for now, I've got to say r-. Thanks, Blake.

Under XP everything is okay and here the file tabmail.css is used. Under Vista/Win7 only the file tabmail-aero.css is used, also in classic mode. Because of this I had to change the wrong rules only in tabmail-aero.css
Comment on attachment 600813 [details] [diff] [review] Fix the tabs Okay, that makes sense. r=me! Thanks, Blake.
