The style should stop working after commenting out the code and restarting the app.

Try exiting the app and using the -purgecaches command line option.


thunderbird.exe -purgecaches
ThunderbirdPortable.exe -purgecaches

Didn't work! But moving the commented-out code from the bottom of the file to the top did. Odd, because several other commented-out items at the bottom do get deactivated. smh

So, a bit late to the party, but I was amazed that there's STILL no theme or fix for this, so I added the image files on page one to the xpi from phoenity. So you get all the old folder icons + all new phoenity icons not covered by those 4 files at the start of the topic. It's all really lazy and it's the only thing changed, but it means you don't have to mess around with the css. Just go to extensions and choose install from file. ... dicons.xpi

Edit: I took the other files in ... ail/icons/ as well and put them in there too. Not everything is changed back, but those phoenity envelopes seem to have dissapeared yay :P This version is here: ... icons2.xpi
