Howdy,

I've been experimenting (with nearly total success) with display tweaks generated by a userCHROME.css file.

At this point, I have just one hitch:

When I click on Inbox, my message list displays as I would like, but the single message that has the cursor on it, is impossible to read:

That's because the selection bar is pale blue, and the text is white. The contrast is so low, that I can't read a word.

What userCHROME.css tweak will control the color of the text of that selected message subject line etc?

Sincere thanks,

A.C.

Try this:

Code: Select all
/* Thunderbird userChrome.css */

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

#threadTree treechildren::-moz-tree-row(selected, focus)
{ background-color: darkslateblue !important; }

#expandedHeaderView
{ background-color: gainsboro !important; }

Hi again,

With further experimentation, I do have another question:

What is the CSS tweak to change the color of the header on the inbox (that is, the header that displays such things as "Subject -- From -- Date" etc?

Many thanks, as before,

A.C.

Try this:

Code: Select all
#threadTree treecol
{ -moz-border-top-colors: peachpuff peachpuff !important;
  -moz-border-right-colors: peachpuff peachpuff !important;
  -moz-border-bottom-colors: peachpuff peachpuff !important;
  -moz-border-left-colors: peachpuff peachpuff !important;
  background-color: peachpuff !important;
  color: cornflowerblue !important; }

The terminology is folder pane, thread pane and message pane. The main window is called the 3pane window.

The inbox is a folder in the folder pane.

Hi again Morat,

I tried your suggestion above by cutting and pasting, but the area I called the "Header" remains white.

Thanks for any further thoughts,

A.C.

The style colors the header in the thread pane in Windows 7.

Hopefully, a Windows 10 user will post a solution.
