HTML css options - unable to locate action

With the new html rather than the old style css options I am looking for the way to:-

1) Provide lines under each entry in the inbox etc (used to be easy)

2) Possibly do "zebra" lines on inbox entries

3) Add vertical separators between icons in the menu

4) Probably impossible, but.... I usually use Thunderbird 2 (yes 2!) for pop mail and sending indecure stuff, but looking to move too SSL mail, hence trying 115. I have used the old V2 profile and works, but, I use 8 pop accounts and under V2 you just had a single joint inbox (and single folder for the rest) for all the accounts. Worked fine and therefore didn't have a long list on the left hand pane. Still works but IF i try to edit any of the accounts in \tools\account settings it brings up error:- "The Local Directory path "F:\Users\?????\Mail" is not suitable for message storage. Please choose another directory." I know this mixed setting was removed back in the earlier versions, but why? If I make changes, then they do stick...I can also edit the entries directly in prefs.js but if I want to add an account, then I have to use the profile in V2, (and delete the .msf files otherwise does od things), then add the new account then move the profile back to V115.

This seems very long winded and have no idea why this great feature was removed...any one know how to get back?

I will address two items:

For zebra striping, I show two options, one for white background and one when using dark theme.

First, if not already done, 
Go to settings>general, scroll to bottom for config editor. 
Search for  toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets   and set to True 
Then in profile, create a folder named chrome, if not already there
Then, create a text file named userChrome.css if not already there, and store in the chrome folder 
Then, place one of the following in the file. Close TB if running and restart. Feel free to twiddle with the colors, but do not ask me for help in that. This is an area of personal experimentation. But it works. Good luck. 


/* for WHITE background ver 115 plus */
/*  #######    */
@namespace html url("http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml");

#threadTree tr:nth-child(2n) {
  background-image: linear-gradient(rgba(0,0,0,.08), rgba(0,0,0,.08)) !important;  
}

########################## separator line - do not include ########

/* ####  for ver 115 version  and DARK theme   */

@namespace html url("http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml");

#threadTree tr:nth-child(2n) {
  background-image: linear-gradient(rgba(255,255,255,.15), rgba(255,255,255,.15)) !important;  
}

For the "long-winded paragraph', I'm not sure what you are referring to. If you are referring to sharing an inbox across multiple POP accounts, that setting is available under the account's 'server setting' and 'advanced' button. I do not use it, so can give no specifics on setup, but it's there.

Many, many thanks That has solved the 2) entry and I am grateful!

No. 1 is academic with your solution, but would be nice if anyone does know the code

No. 3 will keep waiting/looking

No. 4 long winded - using the profile from V2 you can not use the multiple inbox and also if starting from scratch TB seems to put folders down the side for each email address, even if a common inbox. Also creates some very unusual folder trees in the \mail\folder whereas currently there is only the inbox\drafts\trash etc not multiple ones and a single added folder showing in picture as "store". Actual folders in profile look same as here, so can pull in back ups if needed.

The set up in picture gets mail from 7 different pop boxes and keeps very tidy

I don't recall V2 at all. Was that when Elvis was in the Army? :) Okay, maybe not that long ago. Anyway, current versions do offer, in addition to allowing POP accounts to share an inbox, a unified inbox. This is virtual, in that the accounts are separate, yet Thunderbird can present them as being one.

Many thanks to those who replied so far. The shading and lines are so useful....now just need to understand the coding behind these as a little different to the machine coding I usually use!

I am still looking for a way to add the seperator lines between icons if possible - i know I can open the profile in an old version, add them and then go back to 115, but that seems silly!

As for the inbox etc. have tried but still sets everything up as separate accounts and folders, whereas original versions used same folders for all accounts, named as "JR" in the image and the directory structure in \profile\Mail was very simple with just the files as shown. Using the virtual box does it all weird!!!!

Maybe have to keep old version running to edit accounts!
