Yes, you were posting in a board for sharing tips on how you use Scrivener. :)

Generally speaking though, if you have a cover image set in your compile settings, and it looks good in Kindle Previewer, then you should be okay. You can’t really trust how .mobi files look in end-user reader software. It’s a format designed for publication to KDP, not distribution as an ebook.
