Are you talking about during message composition?

there is a big enigmail toolbar that should be at the top of each
composition window.  it has two buttons, one for signing, and one for
encryption.  those buttons should be very clear whether they're selected
or not.  If you don't have the toolbar, maybe its been customized away?
can you do "View | Toolbars | Enigmail Toolbar" ?

I think maybe the other report that you're making here is that the
checkboxes on thunderbird 53 menus on jessie are not visible.

I can confirm that:

I've cloned this bug to document that problem and bring it to the
attention of the thunderbird devs.

That sounds plausible.  i could even consider shipping the
dpkg-diversion in the jessie version of enigmail, if the gnome-keyring
maintainers are OK with it.  (or they could ship an update in jessie
that disables it too)

But really, users should be encouraged to upgrade to stretch :)
