This is my first post. Thanks for your help!

Backgound: I'm building a Beamer presentation using the metropolis theme (because it looks nice) and the miniframes outer (for the progress header).

Problem: There's a whitespace between the navigation header and the frametitle that I can't get rid of (on image below it is between "First Section" and "Research Question"

Desired Solutions: I'd be happy to get rid of the whitespace or fill it in with mDarkTeal.

My code and the third slide (the one with the whitespace) are below. Thanks!

\documentclass[10pt, compress]{beamer}
\usetheme{metropolis} % Use metropolis theme
\useoutertheme{miniframes} %Use miniframes outer

%text and background color for navigation bar
\setbeamercolor{section in head/foot}{fg=mDarkTeal, bg=mLightBrown}
\setbeamerfont{section in head/foot}{size=\scriptsize, series=\bfseries}

%Title Page Info
\title{Thanks for Your Help}

\section{First Section}

    \frametitle{Research Question}
    \begin{center} \Large{\textbf{Is this a good question?}} \end{center}


enter image description here


To remove the whitespace add the open subsection=false to the miniframes theme:

\useoutertheme[subsection=false]{miniframes} %Use miniframes outer




Define the same color for the subsections:

\setbeamercolor{subsection in head/foot}{fg=mDarkTeal, bg=mLightBrown}
