Problems in going from win 7 to win 10 with no changes to settings.

1. Vertical spacing in all lists now has too much whitespace. I cannot find what I need to put into userChrome.css to fix this?
2. Color inversion (background) for highlighted item in message list for certain colors is now very light (currently a purple one is worst). Text is the right color, but inverted highlighting is vastly unsaturated. How to fix?
3. Headings highlighting is so light as to be invisible. What to do in userchrome?

Note that this also involves going from a 1920x1200 monitor to a 3840x2400. I have not tried to mess with screen gamma.

In #3 "Headings highlighting", do you mean the color of the "header bar" itself? Because they look white to me, and blend in with all the other white. I often end up closing the wrong window because it is hard to differentiate them.

Thank you.

I use a style to change the header pane background color in the main window.

Code: Select all
#expandedHeaderView {
  background-color: gainsboro !important;
