THUNDERBIRD text color

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by =?UTF-8?B?IsaSwq5AbksgcGFuxbHCqcKpSSI=?=, Jan 29, 2005.

  1. There's gotta be a setting to change this, but I can't find it.

    Whenever I respond to an email, the text I type is light grey, which is
    very hard to see. I have to select the text, and click the color box to
    change it to black.

    If I compose an email, but don't start it exactly at the top line, the
    text is also light grey, which I change to black (or any other color)
    the same way.

    This started happening with either version 1.0 or .9. I installed 1.0
    very soon after I got .9, so I'm not sure when the grey text problem
    started.

    I assume that you are composing in HTML mode. What happens if you
    choose Plain Text?

    Anyhow, if you wish to continue using HTML, try
    Tools>>Options>>Composition. Click the HTML Options button. Next to
    Text, you will see a box, probably colored light grey. Click on it to
    get a color picker, and select black, down in the lower left corner of
    the color picker.

    Thanks, but it's already set to black in the HTML options.
