Hi All,

On asking the folks over at Mozilla about this, it
turns out that this is a problem with Xfce's themes
or Xfce itself.

But not to fret, there is a work around:

Thin Borders:

To achieve a thin 1 point green border on the
left and right of Thunderbird's main window,
place the following in your userChrome.css
file in your profile's "chrome" directory

#messengerBox {
    border-right: 1px solid green !important;
    border-left: 1px solid green !important;

Thanks to everyone for there tips and suggestions,


Computers are like air conditioners.
They malfunction when you open windows
