Strange that that should happen, though.  I use F12, too, but use the kde-
fedora testing and unstable repos, as well as the normal updates-testing 
repos.  I never saw that problem - though I admit, it isn't a page I'd 
normally check.  Still, the colours for Important and New messages have always 
worked fine, so the basic control couldn't have been broken.

It would be interesting, if you could spare the time, to restore those files, 
one at a time, always making sure that you have kept the new file version, of 
course.  If you could isolate the cause of the problem this way it could help 
someone else.
