After upgrading to 102 in Thunderbird my themes all went dark. I switched to the default theme so I could see email. But any switch back to my Outlook theme for instance will be dark mode. I have another theme Animated Cascading Waterfall and it goes dark as well. I have to use the System theme or Light to be able to see my email.
Anything I can do to correct this?
Hi Bear, Firefox recently added a selector on the Settings page to manage whether Firefox signals pages that you prefer a Light theme or a Dark theme. Could you experiment with that. More info in the following article:
Does that help with Outlook?
I thought this was a Thunderbird help site, I didn't realize Firefox was at 102 so I edited my original post.....
Actually it's technically not a support site at all. Support is at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/thunderbird
Does the problem reproduce with a new Thunderbird profile?
Does this also factor in Thunderbird?...which seems to suffer from the same problem?...is there a fix coming for T-Bird or not?..I guess we'll just ditch it then, its been a nightmare for the past few months since this drastic change. Still though thanks for giving a solution for Firefox
No, and not much help with the problem from this site and nothing from any Mozilla folks that might be on here. I'm up to version 102.1.2 and still having to use the System theme as all others go dark on me......
Is this the solution for THUNDERBIRD?...becasue there IS no Settings>>Themes optiion! Can they just fix the issue here? I don't understand why no matter WHAT theme I apply the entire interface for TB is "Dark" mode?...I have trouble seeing this..now I'm forced to use Evolution until this problem goes away? Shame because I've been with T-Bird since the ver. 45 era. Hopefully someone will fix this so that me and my small study group don't have to bounce all over the place regarding the different emails we have to use! ATTN: T-Bird devs?...sometimes? "Less really IS More"
I have this same issue, running Thunderbird 102.4.0, 32-bit, on Windows 10. The ONLY theme that doesn't make the main windows in both email and calendar dark is the System theme-auto, which does not pick up the blue color I have set up in the Windows system. Just a light grey for the menubar and titlebar. Every other theme will change the title/menu bar color, but also makes the main windows dark theme.
This did not happen prior to upgrading to version 102. Is there a fix coming? I would not have allowed the program to upgrade had I known this was going to happen.
Since July 2022 I have not been able to change themes without all of them turning dark on me. I have considered getting a new email client, but since decided to stick it out a little while longer as Thunderbird is what I need. Just wish this themes problem would go away........still upgrading as they come along......
There are some reports, which as far as I can tell are rare.
One possibility which is not yet thoroughly analyzed is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1725926. When there is news I will post here.
I have seen some reports saying the problem is the themes themselves instead of Thunderbird, happening to the themes after the upgrade that caused them all to go dark. The themes may need to be updated.
You think there is anything to that?
