A question about the mid screen bar that shows info about "to" and "from" and subject of emails. Currently this is pale grey on my Windows 10 system, so maybe that's part of the colour scheme. Is it possible to change this separately to more clearly distinguish between the list of emails and their content?

Try this:

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

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

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

http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css

Thanks tried that, but it didn't work. Something minor is probably wrong along the line. Is userChrome.css case sensitive? That's how I spelled it. I created it as a text file and saved it with ANSI encoding, not Unicode. There was no chrome folder in my profile folder, so I had to create it.

Does the userChrome.css file work at all?

Try the following tweak as a test.

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

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

* { background-color: pink !important; }

Managed to sort it.
There was another subfolder with a string of numbers in the profiles folder. Created a chrome folder in that and shifted the userChrome.css file there and now it's working.
Thanks again for the help :)
