Can you change the background color of your Adobe Library palette?

One or two updates ago (which ALWAYS make our libraries unsync from the program), the background color of our shared libraries went from tranparent to white - so now we can't see any of our shared, 1 color, white illustrations (see photo). Is there a way to change the background color of the window so this feature can be useful again?

Did you have any luck with this, as I've just come across the same issue.

I also have this problem and it's very annoying because most of my company brand assets are white on transparent ground. I just end up wasting my time dropping them into my photoshop document to see which one I'm getting.
