Change "new mail" color

Veröffentlicht

I want to change the default "new mail" blue color of the folder names to a more acceptable color for me.

I tried the solution described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1245659 and it has no effect. I believe I cut and pasted the proper script that was posted in this thread, but there are so many corrections & added information in the thread it's not clear to me if the the posted script is complete & correct.

Can somebody please help? Thank you.

The link you cited is for changing the colors in the Threads Pane (message list), but I think you want to change the colors of folders with unread messages. From this link, create a userChrome.css file in the chrome subfolder of the profile folder with this content:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");


/* Change the color of folders with unread messages */ treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(hasUnreadMessages-true) {color: red !important;}

See the picture with an example in red.

Actually I'm looking for the "new mail" color change (not unread). Thunderbird shows new mail (mail that hasn't been seen as opposed to unread ) in a medium blue that isn't always apparent to me so I would like to change it to a more obvious color. Thanks.

Have a look at this page, which contains code for new mail and unread folders.

Not being versed in coding it's not clear to me what I can leave out of the "New Mail " section and what I need to include to change only the color.

If I can find the time I'll experiment to see what happens when I use selected parts, but in the mean time does anyone have a simplified solution?
