    Of course I used the exact same GTK3 theme for 1.10~rc4 and 1.10.0. I believe 1.8.15 uses a GTK+ theme.

     
  • Indeed the colours are completely broken, unless perhaps one sticks to some default black-on-white theme. This makes 1.10.0 unusable. I'm using Xfce-dusk theme for both gtk2 and gtk3 and everything else seems to respect it. I'm attaching screenshots for reference.

    Same here. Running 1.10.0 on Gentoo and Adwaita gtk3 theme. The old one 1.9.x worked perfectly on the same machine. Current version is almost unusable.

    I thought this was a dark theme problem too since I've seen it frequently and I use a slightly modified OMG-Dark theme from http://nale12.deviantart.com/art/OMG-Suite-288398137 but I'm also on XFCE and I find that any theme I try, light or dark, has this problem.

    I'm experiencing this issue too under XMonad. Here's where the text first shows up in white:

    $ git bisect good
    9402f2190accb46e53a605c3a29c4778debd426a is the first bad commit
    commit 9402f2190accb46e53a605c3a29c4778debd426a
    ...
    Date:   Thu Jun 13 00:30:33 2013 +0200
    
        Changed unread number rendering to be right bound and non-ellipsized
    ...
    

    I also attached a screenshot of what it looks like for me. I tried removing my .gtkrc-2.0, .config/gtk-2.0, and .config/gtk-3.0 but the text still shows up white.

    On another computer running vanilla Gnome 3, I don't have this issue.

    Same problem for me, on Archlinux with Openbox, Orion theme.

    @all: Which GTK version and which GNOME are you using? I tried dozens of dark themes on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS without any problems. I want to help, but cannot reproduce it.

    Maybe I need to install another distro, but do not really have time to do so.

    Judging from the CSS colors which are taken directly from the GTK style objects the colors reported are nonsense.

    @Mike Smith: I cannot reproduce it with OMG Dark on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Unity.

    @all: Can you please remove ~/.config/liferea/liferea.css?
