Not sure when this started happening, but in jAlbum 23.1.3 with the macOS system standard look-and-feel, the active tab title is almost unreadable. See screenshot.

Looks bad. Works here though (OS X Catalina). Have you by any chance moved to Big Sur?

Still looking ugly on Big Sur 11.2.2.

Not sure when it got fixed, but in Big Sur 11.6.8, and running Java 18 jAlbum, this has now been corrected.

The sub-tab layout is still a usability mess, especially in Laza's skins, but that will probably never get straightened out. On the Mac, I stick to the FlatLight look-and-feel.

A while ago I updated the look&feel library. That must have fixed this.

I'm sure that was the trigger.

Too bad the "Mac standard" L&F folks still haven't addressed the "vertical tabs" problem. That one's a real mess - with more than three or four vertical tabs, a user might never even know the others are there.

(For anyone who's never seen what it looks like, I've attached a screenshot.)
