Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Released

Wednesday April 18th, 2007

Scott MacGregor of Team Thunderbird writes in with news of the release of Mozilla Thunderbird 2: "Thunderbird 2 is now available for download on Windows, Mac and Linux in over 35 languages. Thunderbird 2 offers easy ways to manage and organize your email with message tags, advanced folder views, message history navigation, find as you type, and improved new mail alert notifications. Thunderbird 2 also includes a refreshed user interface and support for Microsoft Vista.

"Thunderbird 1.5.0.x users will be offered Thunderbird 2 via software update at a later date. Those wishing to upgrade now are therefore advised to download and install Thunderbird 2 manually.

"The Thunderbird 2 features page has more details about the new features in Thunderbird 2. The Thunderbird 2 Release Notes have more specific information. The Rumbling Edge has a list of notable bug fixes in Thunderbird 2.

"We also want to extend a huge thanks to everyone in the MozillaZine community for their help and support with Thunderbird 2 over the past year. We wouldn't have been able to release Thunderbird without you. A special thanks to the awesome forum moderators who spend so much time answering questions and to the folks who help organize and participate in our weekly test threads here at MozillaZine."

I'm having the same problem with the unreadable message list.

I think the guilty culprit might be the alternating gray bars. Here's a screenshot. .... Hmmm, no pic upload I guess ..... anyway, yeah, it appears to be overstriking. If I F8 to remove the preview pane, the lines are all readable. If I put the preview pane back on, the lines are all double-printed, like two lines written on top of each other. There also seems to be some alternating line pattern too.

Also, I notice that in the short second after I hit the F8 to turn the Preview pane back on, I can see that first, the message lines above get listed correctly, but then the overstrike gets superimposed on top as the screen finishes refreshing.

How can I turn off the gray bars? Maybe that would fix it. Is that in CSS or Chrome? What do I change?
