Is this the default theme and restricted mode on? Restart obsidian.

Yes, default theme, restrict mode on, restart, the ribbon color still has the block in title bar.

Should also note that the setting ‘Translucent window’ is also on, looks like that override the title background color of the before element of the ribbon in app.css:

You didn’t paste the output of show debug info.

Does it happen in the sandbox vault?

Thank for the reply. Yes, in sandbox vault too with show ribbon on, translucent window on.

what if you disable translucency?

Disable window transparency works, but the point is that with both ribbon and transparency on, there seems to be some css override issue in the new version…

ok, thanks

I think the previous version had a translucent sidebar background. I feel like this issue is happening because the sidebar background became opaque.

This will be fixed in the next update. Thanks!
