Any way to add some color to the icons for write, delete, reply, print, and address book.
Before upgrading I used No Glass to get colored icons...No Glass does not work with TB 60.3....
No Glass did work with the previous version I was using (TB59).

There are no colored mail toolbar icons in the Thunderbird 60 source.

Here is how to style the reply button using the mail-toolbar.png file in the chrome folder.

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

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

#button-reply {
  list-style-image: url("mail-toolbar.png") !important;
  -moz-image-region: rect(0px 96px 24px 72px) !important;
}

#button-reply:hover {
  list-style-image: url("mail-toolbar.png") !important;
  -moz-image-region: rect(24px 96px 48px 72px) !important;
}

#button-reply[disabled] {
  list-style-image: url("mail-toolbar.png") !important;
  -moz-image-region: rect(48px 96px 72px 72px) !important;
}

Did you try any addons by Aris like the CustomizeMyBird addon?

I use the CustomizeBird add-on. It lets you set the color of the button in the scrollbar and the background color in the add-ons manager window etc. but doesn't appear to let you change the color of icons in the toolbar.

I edited the install.rdf file inside noglass-0.12-tb-windows.xpi to get NoGlass to install with TB 60.3. It only shows monochrome icons.

I can get colored mail toolbar icons with the CustomizeMyBird extension with my setup.

* open CustomizeMyBird options
* select Noia (large) in main icons section

CustomizeMyBird 2.7.4
Thunderbird 60.3.0
Windows 7 SP1 32-bit

You're right. Don't know how I missed that.
