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 ;)

I Give Up - Sigh Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this theme, but just can't wait for updates anymore. Using FF 31, and it's not compatible. As I've said before, I'd be willing to pay a yearly fee to use this beautiful theme if it was updated regularly. I will miss it greatly, but security updates take precedent.

Great skin. It is broken in TB24 but I managed to find this workaround that allows it keep working... I used 7zip to open the xpi files.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this theme. It helped me after I upgraded to Win 7 & all the arrows next to the folders got so small I could barely click on them.

This theme also has other graphics that make using TB that much easier to use.

I highly recommend it.

PLEASE upgrade the theme so I can upgrade my TB. It's telling me it's not compatible.

Thank you
