I'm using the beta builds and it looks like they are using a shadow font in the user opening tab. It is very difficult to read -- font is small.

User opening tab? What's that?

What theme? What operating system theme?

My Thunderbird beta opens with the Mail tab ,showing the Account Central pane if I have an account selected in the Folder pane, or the Thread and Message panes if I have a folder selected in the Folder pane.

Not seeing any problems using any of the built-in Thunderbird themes with my operating systems default theme.

On Windows I did bump the OS Display setting to 125%.

I use the Thunderbird Dark theme.

When I open TB the first screen where I select (or it is pre-selected) my account the font appears fuzzy or shadowed.

It happens with the Dark Fox theme -- others seem ok.

I do use a dark mode on Windows 10. Don't waste any time on this -- its not that important. Ill just use a different theme -- they aren't that different but the Fox.

Thanks for your help.
