I was wondering if anyone could suggest or point me to any Stylish or .css code to make the TB personal toolbar (?), mail toolbar (?) and tabs be transparent or have a degree of transparency.

I am referring to the toolbar where the File, View, Etc. menus are shown and the toolbar where the primary buttons for TB are located, as well as the tabs.

This would not be for a theme, but for my own personal use with the default theme in TB.

So far, I have tried this, which works in FF, but without success in TB:

#nav-bar,
#TabsToolbar,
#PersonalToolbar {
background: transparent !important;
border: 0px !important
}

I don't use TB, but try this:

#main-window toolbox toolbar {
background: transparent !important;
}
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Try this https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/glassmybird/

Also this are the ids/classes of some main Thunderbirds toolbars: .chromeclass-toolbar, .chromeclass-menubar, #tabbar-toolbar.

This code might help you as well:
Code: Select all
   toolbox, toolbar{
      background:none !important;
      border:0 !important;
      -moz-appearance: none !important;
   }
Customize Firefox 57+ UI || Classic Theme Restorer (Fx 29-56) || Classic Toolbar Buttons || CustomizeMyBird

Thank you, Aris. That code worked fine. I haven't tried GlassMyBird yet, but I may give that a go to see if it is much different.

Aris, I tried GlassMyBird and while it is wonderful, it is a bit more than I need as I don't need to change the dialogue boxes, menus and the bottom toolbar (the one with the online indicator).

But, I would like to ask you if you could provide the code to change the tabs to the GFS style that is in GlassMyBird and how to make the non-focused tabs transparent and semi-transparent.

Thanks.

Aris

I wanted to mention in my previous post you can use GMBs code for your creations.

Download GMB xpi file and open it with any zip-compatible application. Navigate to content\css and look into gmbX.css files (X = 1, 2, 3). There you will find, what you are looking for.

info:
.tabmail-tab - normal tab
.tabmail-tab:hover - hovered tab
.tabmail-tab[selected=true] - active/focussed tab
Customize Firefox 57+ UI || Classic Theme Restorer (Fx 29-56) || Classic Toolbar Buttons || CustomizeMyBird
