The attached image shows how my email list pane looks like. I would like to change the color of the whole unread line, to be the same color as the Read column (the green dot).

I tried the following after reading some thread of older versions of thunderbird, to no avail:

Changed toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true Created a file name userChrome.css in %APPDATA%\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\t6yl6i44.default\chrome

Had this in its content:

  1. threadTree > treechildren {
 color: green !important;}

Is it possible to do what I want? Thanks

Here is an example to play with. This example sets background to white and text to black:

 /* Make unread messages black text and italic */
  treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(unread) {
    color: #000000 !important;
    font-style: italic !important;
    font-weight: bold !important;  background-color: #ffffff !important; 
 }

Thanks. The following text did what I wanted.

'@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

/*set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true in about:config*/

/* Make unread messages black text and italic */
  1. threadTree > treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text(unread) {
   color: #57BE66 !important;
   font-weight: bold !important;
}'
