Menu toolbar font

I wish to make the Menu toolbar font bold and perhaps a bit bigger. How do I do this?

Also less importantly the background color used to be set by my Walnut theme which is now defunct and replaced by a partial theme with a white background. I would like to change that as well.

See how nice my old TB looked?

Now on Windows 10 2004 and new TB .

For the tab text:

#tabs-toolbar .tab-text {
	font-size: 10pt !important;
	font-weight: bold !important;
}

The Menu Bar font can be set with the following code:

menubar > menu
{ font-size: 18pt !important;
  font-weight: bold !important;}


For the background color of the Mail Toolbar:

#mail-bar3
{ background-color: cyan !important; }


Help/Troubleshooting, Profile Folder, Open Folder, close TB, create a new folder named chrome, create a new document in chrome with a text editor, name it userChrome.css, Save as type: All files *.*, copy in the above code, change the numbers and colors as desired. Double-click toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true in Options/General/Config. editor, restart TB.

How would I make the font of the Mail Tool Bar bold? Also how do I change the background color of the message list pane and tree ? white is not my preference.

And thank you very much.


Should I be separating these questions to different threads?

This great! I have the format I need to adjust those now! One more since I have you :) The Tabs, tab bar would be nice to have a bold font as well!

One thing else I just learned, very important to save the changes to the actual css file before trying in TB. OK I knew this but forgot. Thanks again

Thanks again and for that link, it looks to be very useful.

I had found users userchrome.css files but they were so complex I was a bit afraid to try to interpret them.
