Must be the default theme for Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This theme makes Thunderbird a lot better. I missed it a lot during the last months

So glad to see an update! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you to the developer for the recent update! I know FF has been outpacing most app developers. I simply LOVE Silvermel for both FF and TB. Again, thank you!!!

Sadly lost its former glory Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A brilliant theme which for years was hugely popular and completely outclassed the default theme. You only have to look at the forums to see how popular this theme was and how much people want to update it. Sadly the developer no longer has time, therefore in the interests of the open source community this should be made open source so others can work on it. I doubt many people will be buying him a beer if he's too busy. One star as it's no longer compatible with current versions

Had to change (both) install.rfd to make compatible to TB 45 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

But still works then.

Edit:

nope, it's possible to enable it now, but in the compose message window it's obvious that it's not compatible any more:

Not so good on Windows 10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not really working correctly on Windows 10 and Firefox 40. The title bar is not fully skinned and doesn't look all that great. Otherwise one of my all time favorite themes.

Silvermel - Work in Progress... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you ShareBird! That was certainly easier than trying to follow highwaykind's instructions.

Development Versions

Just realize that these versions have much more work on them than highwaykind modifications. Those modifications just allow that the theme can be installed, but don't actually make it "work" properly... ;-)

Not entitlement Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's not entitlement to expect a paid product to be updated. I realize that Mozilla is awash in updates. But it isn't all that hard to update your add-ons. So please do if you expect contributions.

How to get it to work on TB 31:

Download the extension silvermel-1.5.7-fx+tb.xpi

Unzip this to into a folder silvermel-1.5.7-fx+tb with inside 3 files: install.rdf, silvermel.jar, silvermelxt.xip.
open install.rdf and change the Thunderbird Max version. (it is set to 28.*. I've set it to 38*, current version is 31, stuff still looks good with this addon enabled)

<!-- Thunderbird GUID -->
<em:id>{3550f703-e582-4d05-9a08-453d09bdfdc6}</em:id>
<em:minVersion>18.0</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>38.*</em:maxVersion>
</Description>
</em:targetApplication>
<!-- Front End MetaData -->


Unzip silvermelxt.xpi into a folder called silvermelxt. Delete silvermelxt.xpi (you will create a new one).

open install.rdf insize the silvermelxt folder, and change the Thunderbird max version there too
<!-- Thunderbird GUID -->
<em:id>{3550f703-e582-4d05-9a08-453d09bdfdc6}</em:id>
<em:minVersion>18.0</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>38.*</em:maxVersion>
</Description>
</em:targetApplication>
<!-- Front End MetaData -->

Now re-zip the CONTENTS of the silvermelxt folder, (the contents are:
3 folders
chrome,
defaults,
modules,
chrome.manifest,
install.rdf)

Call the file silvermelxt.zip. Rename it to silvermelxt.xpi.
Move this file into the parent folder silvermel-1.5.7-fx+tb, (there already is an install.rdf there, as well as a silvermel.jar, you already deleted the original xpi file, if you didn't delete it you now have to overwrite it.).

Now open the install.rdf that's inside the silvermel-1.5.6-fx+tb folder, and change that version to something higher as well.

You now have 3 files inside a folder called silvermel-1.5.7-fx+tb:
install.rdf (with changed max version).
silvermel.jar (unchanged)
silvermelxt.xpi (unzipped - changed install.rdf - rezipped - renamed to xpi).

Zip these 3 files into silvermel-1.5.7-fx+tb.zip, and rename that to silvermel-1.5.7-fx+tb.xpi. This is our new XPI., your new addon install file.
Save this new xpi file to a folder where you can find it again. (You can delete all the other files )
Install this new xpi in Thunderbird, and you have a working Silvermel addon.

"No longer works on Firefox coz the creator/s wont bother to update but it works on PaleMoon."

Jeez ! What a sense of entitlement! Sharebird is busy with LIFE, and of course it works on an outdated browser..For a while ;)
