Gmail no longer shows unread messages in bold

Unread post by tonka » 2022-09-15, 00:06

I just installed the latest Win10 udpate, and on starting PM, Gmail no longer shows the unread messages in bold, which makes going through my inbox quite challenging (almost impossible).

Gmail still shows unread messages in bold on the same PC in Firefox and Opera, as well as on an iPhone, so it appears to be Pale Moon-specific, even though the problem appeared on reboot of the latest Win10 update.

Any suggestions appreciated, thank you!

Seems to work for me here. Have you tried using a fresh profile?

This . Also, why are you running both Adblock Latitude and uBlock?

I have a Gmail account. All of my unread messages show in Bold lettering.

At this time, I'm using 64 bit linux Pale Moon 31.2.0.1 running in 64 bit linux Mint 21 (Vanessa) Xfce. The only extension I use in Pale Moon is uBlock Origin with UBO enabled for Gmail.

I also use a lightweight theme named, Moonscape.

Hmm, haven't tried a fresh profile, can do.

As to the second question - belt and suspenders? If there is a reason not to run both I'd appreciate knowing why, and if there's a preference.

Off-topic:
They don't interfere with each other, but they do the same thing and having both is just a waste of resources that could be used for something else. They're not really like belt and suspenders, but more like lighting a fireplace and turning on a heater during winter. It's hot but what a waste.
As for which one, there's no answer but only opinions, so pick the one you feel more comfortable with.

If you don't want to try a new profile: it might be caused by one of your extensions, so see if disabling them fixes it, or test in Safe Mode by holding down Shift when you start PM. Alternatively - Menu > Help > Restart in Safe Mode. (Restart PM to exit Safe Mode).

Same thing happened to me with palemoon on multiple different computers.

Help -> restart in safe mode (not checking any disable options) solved it for as long as Pale Moon was running in safe mode. Restarting though and bold was gone again.

Preferences -> Advanced tab -> Hardware Acceleration (HWA)
Uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available" and then restarting Pale Moon solved it for me - font is bold again for unread messages.

I've had hardware acceleration enabled in Pale Moon for years, so I'm not sure what happened to cause the issue with gmail bold font now.

I just recently started having this problem as well; this is what fixed it for me (works immediately without a browser restart):

Tools -> Preferences -> Content Tab -> Advanced Button in "Fonts & Colors" section -> Uncheck "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above

Oh, that likely just means Google is pushing more of their crappy google fonts that rely on illogical font tables inside the fonts themselves and requiring fine-tuning/manipulating of low-level font properties to achieve normal formatting behaviour, instead of, you know, just using normal formatting in HTML.
