I just installed the modified version again – and it works! TB 45.1.1
The xpi-file is in the zip-file, you have to unpack it and then install it inside Thunderbird....

Not working TB45, no support Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Seems dead - developer is not responding to update requests. What a pity - it was a great, highly useful app once.

Sadly does not work with Thunderbird 45 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A very handy plugin, no longer working. Hopefully the developer releases an update to version 1.1.

Nothing appears in the Error Console :-(

Work well until Update to TB 45 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately the addon does not work anymore with TB 45. It is really a useful extension and it is really hard now to get used to non colored folder icons again.

EDIT: With 45.1.1 it still does not work.

No longer working TB 38.6.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Went to change existing color on a folder and the extension is greyed out on each different view of my folders.

After moving the T'bird profile, folders which had been colored via add-on were no longer colored Rated 3 out of 5 stars

While the add-on itself moved with the profile being relocated, all of the folders which had been colored via the add-on were now seen with the default color. Bummer.

Limited Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't allow one to colour IMAP In or Sent folders, which makes it pretty useless for me. May be of use to others, though.

Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for a very simple and effective organizing add-on.

Works Fine on TB 38.5.0 (Portable Edition) on Win 8.1

@Destry: You cannot change the color of a folder with a special icon (i.e. a special folder like Inbox, Drafts, etc). In this case, Color Folders is greyed-out; In normal (custom) user folders it works fine.

Color Folders greyed out Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Will this be made to work with TB 38.4 (latest)?
Right click a folder and Color Folders is greyed out in the drop-down menu.
Thanks

Doesn't change the color of the saved searchs Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I right click on a saved search folder it shows colored folders with a lens icon inside, so it's detecting the folder correctly, but when I click on a color nothing happens :(

I'm on TB 38.4 on Linux Mint.

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):

[UPDATED REVIEW] Nada. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I refused to give up on this extension so I disabled all of my extensions and re-enabled them one by one.

I found out which extension makes color folders stop working.


The extension that causes color folders to not work is [excuse me, this PC is taken. I'm writing a review online... go find your own PC, bud, k? ... holy sh!@$#!! is that a gun??!?! Wait! I won't sa... argh!!!!!!!! blech. splat. thud. ...... ...... .... .. . . . .

Previous review:

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

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

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.
