Thank you *so much* newages and hsur! Is there any chance that you could set the version to 999 or something rather than 60, so that it would continue to work in 61 and onwards (if there aren't any other changes that affect it)?

Thanks newages.
I wrote a .bat file that automatically patches the extension to work with Thunderbird 60.

Amazing! I change to maxVersion 52.0.* and it works.
Thanks "cprasmussen".

Follow instruction by "cprasmussen" of February 8, 2017.

Unzip the xpi file quote_colors-0.3-tb+sm.xpi
On line 14 and 22 set <em:maxVersion>52.0.*</em:maxVersion> (52 is completely random)
Zip all files to quote_colors-0.3-tb+sm.zip and rename to quote_colors-0.3-tb+sm.xpi

An simple, yet extremely useful add-on which makes life easier for those of us who follow mailing lists and discussions. Why this functionality has never made it to the main TB code escapes me completely. To add insult to injury, the add-on itself has been abandoned.

Works with Thunderbird 38.1.0

I just had to change
<!-- Thunderbird -->
..
<em:maxVersion>3.0.*</em:maxVersion>
to
<em:maxVersion>39.0.*</em:maxVersion>

in install.rdf
Works fine

Здравствуйте, не работает Плагин на Thunderbird 31.5 Windows
Редактировал установочный файл, все равно не помогло
<em:maxVersion>36.*</em:maxVersion>

The compatibility value should be changed for this add-on, as it works PERFECTLY in TB 24.0!

This is a great extension! It makes reading messages with multiple replies SO much easier, as you can see exactly where one level ends and another level starts.

Stop counting ">"s! Use this instead!

This add-on still works if I extract it and edit the MaxVersion in install.rdf. Could there be just a quick update to this add-on to allow it to install without hacks on modern Thunderbird versions?

Is there a way to get this to work on TB17? It's a great add-on, but will not load on TB17.
Thx,
Henri

...as previously mentioned in the howto in one of the reviews, you update the maxVersion in the install.rdf.

Modify maxVersion but In Thunderbird 14+ still does not work...??!

It is as if it isn't even there- and this is on TB 3.1.20.

...you update the maxVersion in the install.rdf as mentioned in the howto in one of the reviews. I wish the author would do this ...or at least express his desire to let someone else who is interested in doing this, take over.

Fonctionne trés bien dans Thunderbird 10 (mais il faut hacker le fichier install.rdf car l'auteur ne s'en occupe plus)

Pourquoi Mozilla ne valide pas automatiquement ce trés utile plugin ?

A star off because I HAD to do it myself...
In config editor find the line: extensions.minCompatibleAppVersion, and change the value to 0.3.

Worked for me immediately! Be nice if the author would update this really cool add-on.

Works on Thunderbird 10.0, after modifying the max version # in the install.rdf file. The how-to looks complicated, but it's straightforward.

I would like that Mozilla changes its stupid major release frenzy.

Thanks to @Robert Kofler https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/user/5914218/ and @Mozzied https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/user/4710265/ for giving me the pieces to get this great add-on to work with SeaMonkey 2.6.1
