I fat fingered a short-cut in Thunderbird and now the colours of all my application windows are inverted. I'm not sure what combination I hit (I was trying for Alt-1). How do I get my colour scheme back to normal?

This happens with Compiz. Typically when you press either Super + N or Super + M Try pressing either of these combinations to de-negatize the desktop.
