Zotero 5 collection pane line height

edited August 21, 2017
After upgrading to Zotero 5, the line height/spacing of my collection pane is about 2, (it used to be around 1), whereas the middle pane still has the old line height (a bit over 1 I think). It's a bit of a usability issue, since there's only room for about half as much collections at a time compared to Zotero 5.

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and Zotero 5.0.11.

Here's a screenshot of the issue: http://imgur.com/a/qoCQ8

Any ideas on what to do to fix it? My colleague (also using Ubuntu 16.04 and Zotero 5) has the same issue.
  • I fixed it myself by editing chrome/skin/default/zotero/overlay.css in zotero.jar. I changed

    #zotero-collections-tree treechildren::-moz-tree-row {
    height: 1.7em;


    #zotero-collections-tree treechildren::-moz-tree-row {
    height: 1.0em;

    And now the line height in the collections pane is 1, which is a major improvemet in usability, in my opinion. Any reason for the change in Zotero 5?
  • *bump*

    Seeing the same issue on Linux (Ubuntu), but not on Windows. Will this be fixed?
