Pidgin's Crappy Formatting Icons
So let's take a quick look at the Pidgin background color and foreground color icons:
Take a wild guess as to which is which.
- sets the background color
- sets the foreground color
Of course, because the white color - the same color as the background of the toolbar in almost all GTK+ themes - is what they're highlighting.
Update: This has been fixed in the latest version. And I guess they've fixed their bug tracking system so it works, on occasion. :)
