I'm using the tag feature of TB. Currently when you assign tag you have to specify the color. The issue is that the color you specify colors the entire message index. Which causes issues with too many color combo. I attempted to specify black but when hight lighted it blacks out the text.

I'd like to have the tag but not highlight the entire message line item in the inbox. Or just add the tag without the colorization of the message at all and keep the default blue with white text. is that possible?

So ideally:
inbox message
- default - black text - white background
- tag text - default color scheme
- selected message - white text - blue background (this could be OS specific color scheme)

You can change the style of a tag using the userChrome.css file.

Try changing the background color to transparent.
