Doesn't work with TB78

Hello David, sorry to hear that you can't get BorderColors to work for you.

Do you have any more details about the problem you are encountering? Anything already mentioned on the issue tracker?
See https://github.com/dreadnaut/bordercolors-d/issues/

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a wonderful addon. But, with the latest Windows 10 updates, the latest Thunderbird (78.9.1) and the latest BorderColors D (2021.4.1), I can no longer find a way to get to the BorderColors D settings. There is no line in Thunderbird's Tools menu for Addon Settings.

Hello there, glad to read that you find the add-on useful!

I'm not sure which Thunderbird version introduced the change, but most add-on options are now on the Add-ons tab. BorderColors-D doesn't do anything different, so they should appear there as well.

Hello, thank you very much for this add-on.
I'm an orphan of Account Colors that TB has killed with the 78 version, and luckily you have developed this nice tool that at least replicate the basic account coloring.

Just a few questions:
- can you add an option to color the background of the message header, instead of the message body ?

- can you color the messages in the message pane ?

Thanks, Pietro

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2020.12.1). 

Hello Pietro, glad to hear BorderColors is useful to you!

Unfortunately, negative answers to both your questions:
- I had to remove the header background option when I made the add-on compatible with TB78: there is no API that can create that effect now;
- I don't think there is a way to apply custom styles to message rows at the moment (and I'm also not sure it's in the scope of this add-on)

Je cherchais un remplacement à Account colors, mais c'est impossible car TB INTERDIT LA COULEUR en fond, dans la liste des comptes dorénavant !
Je me rabats sur cette extension, qui fonctionne parfaitement, tout en proposant différentes options pour l'identification colorée dans un nouveau message (traits, différentes tailles, dégradés verticaux ou dans les coins, etc.), et le choix de couleurs entier.
Au moins ça permet de diminuer les erreurs d'expéditeur en envoi de nouveau message.
Mais ça ne résout pas la confusion dans la vision des comptes, depuis que leur distinction par couleur est impossible.
Scandaleux Mozilla qui interdit une fonction essentielle, pour celleux, nombreux·ses, qui ont de nombreux comptes à gérer.

Sehr wertvoll! Ich weiß nun wieder, ob ich ich aus meinem privaten oder geschäftlichen Account schreibe. Hat bei mir Account Colors ersetzt.

It works perfectly well. A very nice add-on

Note that if you have Antidote grammar corrector it conflicts with BorderColorD, and the problematic add-on is NOT BorderColors-D.

Does the job well, even if as the author admits some functionality is missing/limited due to the new add-on changes.

It's unfair IMO for reviewers to have given this 1* because it takes time to catch up with the latest TB changes.

Hello, sorry to hear that. Do you have any more details that could help me solve the issue? Do not that a new version was approved not two days ago.

If you can, please open a new issue on GitHub: https://github.com/dreadnaut/bordercolors-d/issues

No point in listing an extension as compatible if it no longer works, surely?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.0). 

That's way the listing says "Works with Thunderbird 68.0 - 73.0". Plus, the large warning in the description.

I'm working on getting this to work on TB78+, but I have to wait for some changes on the Thunderbird side.

Don't mean to sound like an idiot but just started using Thunderbird 68.3.0 today on a Mac with OS High Sierra. So the dumb question is "how /where do you change the options"?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

On Windows, add-on options have been moved to the main menu, under Tools \ Add-on Options. Not sure about MacOS, but they should be in a similar place.

That's not really something related to this add-on though, but a Thunderbird change—probably due to upstream Firefox changes.

I have been a fan of and regularly used BorderColors and BorderColors-GT; as such, I was thrilled to see that BorderColors D came just as Thunderbird 60 was released and rendered previous BorderColors unusable.

This is all a long winded way of saying how happy I am with BorderColors D - this is a must have if you a) use Thunderbird and b) have more than one email account in Thunderbird.

Thanks dreadnaut! From a user to a developer - I am super thrilled with your work and appreciate what you have done to pick up the development on this must have add on.

It's a must if you manage several email accounts and don't want to send emails with the wrong account. It has several styles and colors to identify each account.
The Spanish XML error was an issue with some missing translations and was fixed in version 1.1.1

me encanta el plugin pero desde las ultimas actualizaciones de thunderbird, ha dejado de funcionar:

Error de lectura XML: entidad no definida
Ubicación: chrome://bordercolors-d/content/options.xul
Número de línea 41, columna 7: <label control="FrameStyle" value="&optionPanel.frameStyle;"/>
------^

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Indeed the options were broken for the Spanish language. Version 1.1.1 fixes the issue and should be available shortly. Otherwise, it's already on GitHub under "Releases".

Alas - it's working again.

Thanks for making this compatible with TB60. Only issue is that frame style "headers" is not working for me. Still, I prefer it on the text area as its much more visible.

EDIT: after reading the reply I tested version 1.1.0 and the same still happens but only in TB for Mac. In TB for Windows all works fine!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.9). 

Thanks for testing the add-on! I have fixed bugs in the "Headers, top and bottom" and "Gradient, right side" styles. The new version (1.1.0) is on GitHub, and should appear here soon.

However, I could not reproduce issues with the "Headers" style, either in TB52 or TB60. If it's still a problem with the new version, please open an issue on GitHub, where you can attach a screenshot.

EDIT-after-the-EDIT-above: I see! I don't have a Mac to test it right now, but I'll see what I can do. Thanks again for checking.
