Hi :)
I want to ask if it's possible to make my own theme- that comes with my Thunderbird installer- as default theme? I did my installer which installs Thunderbird + my extensions to /extensions folder and everything works fine, but I cannot find a way to make myTheme as default instead of the one created by Arvid Axelsson ;) Should I change something in config files, or what? I'm trying to avoid messing up with source code.
Sorry for my english, it's not my native lang. Thanks in advance for every suggestion :)

Try to add your themes internal name to general.skins.selectedSkin.

.\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\prefs.js should contain

pref("general.skins.selectedSkin", "internalthemename");
Customize Firefox 57+ UI || Classic Theme Restorer (Fx 29-56) || Classic Toolbar Buttons || CustomizeMyBird

How to use legacy add-ons after Firefox 57 release? Switch to Firefox 52 ESR or move to Waterfox browser or Basilisk browser.
