Has anyone got "ColorfulTabs" working like it used to, before updating to Firefox Quantum? I'm sure hoping that the developer can get it to work like before. 8-)

Seems pretty dead. Hardly any updates. Last post on his forum was over two months ago.

Hi,
If you can't get a response from the dev.... why not try another one?

I tried several of those and the same thing happens when I install any of them. The theme goes away and then the top section of the window goes to whatever color comes up. Same as ColorfulTabs does. So, I'll just have to stick to no color on the tabs. Too, bad, since that was a great feature, but seems like, that will never come back. Thanks, though, unless you can show me how to get that done by adding to the userChrome file. 8-)

Mine works. Not sure it's "as before" though. My memory of before Quantum is that each tab showed a different colour, whether you had that tab focussed or not. Now, only the tab focussed is coloured but also the bar underneath changes to that colour as well, which actually highlights the open tab that much more. I'm happy with that.
