How to change font for mail printing in Thunderbird?

Posted

I am satisfied with my setting of the way how Thunderbird shows e-mails - green on black. But when I try to print it, the Print preview shows green on white. Black and white printer prints it light grey on white, which is barely readable, and also some crazy fonts are used. Is there any way how to change font and its color only for Print preview/Printing?

Well, I partly succeeded by editing UserContent.css file for Thunderbird. But I am not able to change the font... My UserContent.css now looks like this:

@media print {

            * {color: #010101 !important;}
            * {font-size: 11pt !important;}
            * {line-height: 1.2 !important; }
            * {letter-spacing: -1px; }
           
            }

/*

 No success:
 * {font-family: 'Courier New', courier, typewriter, monospace;}  
 * {padding: 3px 0; }
 * {style="font-family: 'Courier New', courier, typewriter, monospace;"}
 * {font: 15px arial, sans-serif !important;}
 * {font: italic bold 12px/30px Georgia, serif;}
 * {font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;}
 * {font-stretch: condensed ; }
 * {font-kerning: none }
 * {@charset "UTF-8"; }
 * {font-size-adjust: 0.58;}
*/
