Thunderbird - Why is not possible to set colors to different accounts?
Why is it not possible to set colors to each account that I use? I have 4 Accounts and it is not really good to see all in black in the inbox. I think this is a problem that will have a lot of people. The Addon "account color" does this, but now with version 60 of thunderbird this addon doesn't wok. I think that is a thing that must be in thnuderbird and not with an addon. Please think about it and tell me waht you think.
Thanks and Greetings Looks

I have just downloaded the XPI file, and tried out the extension. It still does work, so the author only has to change the maxVersion of the addon to make it work as users expect. If you believe that coloured accounts should be a default option, then open a ticket about it in Bugzilla, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
I tried also to download the xpi file, but I can't install. Allways comes a message( in german) and the translation is: can't install, because it is not compatible with thunderbird 60. I have installed the german version and Thunderbird 60.0b10, but I think the beta is not the problem. How do installed this? I was in Addon there with install from a file. Please can you help me
You can open the XPI file with an archive manager (e.g. 7zip), and modify the install.rdf file. I have changed this line for Firefox 60:
If you do the change, then you can install the extension.
Now I changed the install.rdf file and then I could install this addon. But the new Problem is, that this addon not will work with thunderbird 60. I changed for my accounts text and Background colors but nothing change, also after restart thunderbird. Do you can change something in this addon that gives a affect? I think MOzilla have changed something behind and now this addon don't will work. What you mean?
Hmm, it seems I have missed the update. I reinstalled Thunderbird from the website, and it no longer works. In this case you'll need to wait for someone to make the addon available for Thunderbird 60.
I think the developer does not support more this addon. Because the last update from him 2015! You said I can take a ticket on bugzilla for make this as suggestion as default on thunderbird. HOw can I take a ticket? Report a bug or how it works?
Thanks a lot fro your help, greetings Looks
