Sorry about this being a bug report, but support at Globex Design is not available at present.Google Redesigned really improves the look of the Google utilities, except in my case for Reader. The white-out type in the subscriptions list (except for the one selected) and on the bars and menus at the top of the page is not showing. This is in Firefox 5 on Windows 7, XP, and on a Linpus netbook. The problem appears in both the default theme and my preferred Foxdie theme. Google Redesigned is v0.7, confirmed as the latest.
Ignore all that. My fault entirely. I forgot I also had PureReaderForFirefox installed. This has a cleaner, nicer interface for news reading, but is obviously not restrained by catering for providing an interface to a suite of programs such as Google Redesigned. I believe at one time it co-existed nicely with Google Redesigned - with GR turned off for the Reader element - but I guess recent updates to GR have now prevented the full display by PureReader whether GR is set to influence Reader or not. Turning off PureReader has given me the full utility of Google Reader again.
