Edit the install.rdf file by changing 52.0a2 to 52.* for whichever program you are using Thunderbird or Firefox. Now go into the Charamel.xpi file and do the same thing and finally go into Silvermelxt.xpi and repeat the same thing. Each time you make a change 7-zip will ask you if you want to make the change and you say yes. When you are finished just install it. The problem you were having is because you are trying to rename the xpi file and you can't do that.



"open" charamel-2.0.1-fx+tb, you find install.rdf, Charamel.xpi, Silvermelxt.xpi
install.rdf must be "edit", changing 52.0a2 to 52.*
Charamel.xpi must be "open" then changing 52.0a2 to 52.* by "edit" install.rdf as the first,
Silvermelxt.xpi must be "open" then changing 52.0a2 to 52.* by "edit" install.rdf as the first and second...

"edit" directly Charamel.xpi and Silvermelxt.xpi and make change = Corrupt file.... [-X

tried this with firefox 55. says the addon is corrupt

EDIT: made it work by first unzipping charamel-2.0.1-fx+tb, then editing just install.rdf inside Charamel.xpi (with 7zip) & installing this modified Charamel.xpi separately
notes: I changed 52.0a2 to 56.*

Please consider open sourcing these excellent themes (in the same spirit as Thunderbird itself) if you are no longer longer able to maintain them.

I'm sure the community would be very grateful of this and could support an ongoing donation for your kind efforts in creating them and supporting them for so long.

Thank you VERY much :)

Now do you or anyone else know where in the CSS we can tweak the colors?

The grey is very grey looking & I'd someone to tweak it a bit.

Thanks & have a great day!

Here is my CSS for Thunderbird. Look through the whole thing and play around with it. I haven't played with it in a long time and I don't use Silvermel anymore so you will have to see how it reacts with that theme.

treechildren::-moz-tree-row {

}


#threadTree > treechildren::-moz-tree-row(odd) {

Thunderbird beta version 60 was released June 26, and supposedly there is a way to change the strict compatibility setting in the release notes. I downloaded it but haven't installed it. Has anyone tried to get Silvermel or Charamel working in TB60?

I've tried Silvermel with Tunderbird 60 beta 6 and it looks broken and to be a lot of work to get it compatible again.

Well, I guess it's the end of a long great run. I stick to the ESR channel for a number of reasons, but the most stubborn is to keep using Charamel/Silvermel. With yesterday's release of FF 60.2 ESR (from 52.9), I've come to the end of the line for these wonderful themes. It's almost 9 years since his first post in this thread. It's amazing that nothing in any browser has come close to looking as good as his themes.

I don't think ShareBird even follows this anymore, but just in case, "so long and thanks for all the fish."

Thunderbird 60 has been released, too, and while I haven't yet updated to it, I'll have to at some point soon, and Silvermel is one of a number of add-ons that I'm certain will no longer be supported once I update.

I definitely miss Silvermel in Firefox, and I'll sorely miss it in Thunderbird very soon!
