Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works great for me! A simple command at the bottom of the context menu when I right-click on a folder, and then just select the color I want. Colors last through restarts, and it 's easy to find my most important folders out of the 27 I use.Thanks! I am using TB 38.2.0.

Does not work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As it was asked in this extension's description, I post couple of errors that prevent it from working in my case (latest, fully updated release version of Thunderbird):

(I am giving it five star because it should work fine once fixed)

Nada. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I hate to give it one star, as I don't actually know how well it works.

It's in the context menu for folders, but clicking it doesn't change a thing.

Maybe it's a test of the human species -- to see how many times humans will click on something that doesn't give a reward, before giving up?

I'm running TB v 38.2.0 and leaving now to get some M&Ms...

custom colors not available Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello,

I'm running this addon on Thunderbird 27.0.1
Useful but annoyances concerning:
First: all the custom colors that are not available
Second: the folder color doesn't reflect the color selected in the table.
Third: every time a folder is moved, its color is lost. This is really a pain.

Did I miss something or is it a bug ?

Thanks in advance and best regards

Please update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was using it for many years now, but unfortunately it does not work with TB 38.0.1
Please update!

Not working on 31.6.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Timestamp: 2015-05-10 06:22:09
Error: ReferenceError: colorfolders is not defined
Source File: javascript:%20colorfolders
Line: 1

It appears in the folder menus, but is faded and inoperative. Strangely, it is available for folders I have created, but not for default Thunderbird folders.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In T'Bird v31.5.0, this addon conflicts with theme TT DeepDark v10.0.1.

Sometimes down the left hand pane, clicking on a inbox/folder whatever and the title goes dark. Clicking somewhere else rectifies the problem.

Compatibilty Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Great idea but doesn't work with TB 31.4. Clearly needs updating...

not working with TB 24.6.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It seems useful because I use many folders to organize my email. The add-on is installed and is available in the rigth-click menu. But selecting a color gives me no result.... By the way, I am using Windows 7.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful! I'm using Color Folders since some time and it definitely helps finding the right folder in a cluttered mail archive... the only issue I have is that it makes the Trash folder appear wih a strange icon (kind of "new folder") -- however the other icons look nicer than the default linux ones (they're actually those used in the default Windows theme, or are very close to that)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea. For some reason the menu option is not available for special folders (Inbox, Outbox, Drafts, etc.) That's actually where it would be useful as I need to manage multiple inboxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much. It is so nice! It help that finds the folder which I am looking for.

Not working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hi, I can't get it to work. Right click on a folder and select a color in the sub menu but nothing happens.
Using Thunderbird 24.4.0 and Windows 8.1.

Did Not Work on my MacBook, please help! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This did not work fully on my Macbook with Thunderbird 24 (Maverick OS). The color tab is greyed out on most folders. I sent a contribution, however, and hope you can help!

Not all colors available! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Most of the colors on the "other colors" section don't work on a mac running 10.9.2. The folders become white.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice !
I would love the custom icons feature shown in the ToDo list, i would also suggest as feature the possibility to apply a color on a folder AND it's sub folders.

Bug Report : Annoying that when i add a subfolder then its parent folder turn back to the default color, also when i rename a folder then the folder and all its sub folders turn back to the default color. (Win7 64bits - TB 24.3.0)

I am using version 24.2.0 of Thunderbird and version 1.1 of Color folders still does not work for me. The right click menu option is still greyed out.

Thanks for your review.
Color Folders is actually working on my TB 24.2.0 (Windows 64bit).
If you have Account Colors 6.10 installed, please try upgrading it to 6.11 or later.
If not, could you kindly do below steps and post the results here?
Open TB menu -> Tools -> Error Console (alternatively just press ctrl+shift+J)
Click "Filter" box on bottom left and type "colorfolders"
If any error/warning/message left displayed, please copy it and post it here.
