How do I customise the colors of folder contents in the Bookmarks pull down menu?

I would like to customise the colors of the Bookmarks pull down menu in FF 3.6. Specifically the problem is this:

I pull down the Bookmarks menu which has a number of bookmarked pages and several folders I created. If I then open up a folder the contents of that folder will appear to the side of the Bookmarks menu. So far so good....

But in the folder menu I have some sub folders. If I then open the sub folders the contents will appear to the left of the first folder contents which is right over the original Bookmarks contents. This wouldn't be a problem except the background color of the sub folder contents is the same as the original background and it visually confusing.

The themes and background colors are set by my OS preferences, i.e. Ubuntu. But I wondering if theres a way in FF to make the subfolder contents different color from the original Bookmarks contents?

Have I explained theis clearly? Many thanks

Hello.

I should start by saying that I can't help you with this, but I must also say that I'm positive it is possible to do this. The trick is to create a CSS code (in the userChrome.css) that affects only the nth-child(3) of the Bookmarks menu, but you need to know the IDs and the classes for that. Hopefully someone will help you. I think there's an extension that will let you inspect the elements in Firefox's chrome, but you need to know the bare basics (at least) of CSS to do it yourself, I'd think.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help. All I'm saying, it's very likely something that can be done.

Try something like this:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
#bookmarksMenuPopup menupopup arrowscrollbox,
#personal-bookmarks  menupopup arrowscrollbox {
background-color:#ffc !important;
}
