A "must have"!

Compose with Inline Color options Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been looking for this from quite some time.
Thank you very much for the very useful software.
For the quick selection of colors, additonal color buttons in toolbar are very much useful.
These are very much useful for replying mails with inline responses.

question about colors Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am just using the five colors at this point. I'd like to select a color, and then respond after each paragraph, always in my selected color. But it keeps reverting to black, and I have to re-select the color each time I jump to a different place to write something.

Thanks in advance.

Highlight Text Background function? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon! Thank you.

How does the Highlight Text Background function? I had a text highlighter but this addon supplanted/removed it. It would be nice to have a highlighter again.

That's a great Add-On!!! Thanks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars


Thanks for providing this great handy and useful Add-on! It works fine and as expected!

But! I can't figure out how to - Highlight Text Background -, you write in the description? Does this mean to select one of predefined colors for the - Text Background Color - ? If it does without a help of any installed Add-On e.g. edit HTML, could you give me a tiny help how?
(Choosing one of colors change only the Text Foreground Color)

Thanks for your reply.

Awesome + request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an awesome addon. #appreciation to the author!
Like another user here, I too would like to have more specific customizing options regarding individual buttons/icons appearing in the toolbar. Or perhaps at least a "wrap" option?
One reason for me is that 3 other addons that i use also place buttons in this toolbar on the top row. With those and this addon's buttons, in order to view them all I have to have a impractically wide Compose window open. Narrowing the window results in some buttons being non-accessible. There's additional room in the second row at least, but it can't be accessed or customized etc (hence, a "wrap" option might help?).
Thanks again for an awesome addon & consideration of our requests!
[btw, fwiw i'm running Earlybird (Aurora) v35 & have found no issues--tho i've not used every one of the advanced options e.g. MathType]

Loves this add-on. An easy way to change text colors. I have needed something like this for a while. The other buttons are a plus.

The only request I would ask is the ability to toggle on/off ALL of the buttons, as I have no use for the math related ones, and some others are duplicative of ones I have by default. I know you can turn some on/off by groups but I rather select them individually.

Version 3.3 works on Thunderbird 24 and is excellent

Those having trouble with v2.3.0 can try the v3.3 which is waiting for approval and available via the "Version Information/See complete version history" below.
It works fine for me with TB31b1.

Love this add-on, but it stopped working after the latest update of Thunderbird (24.6.0). Can't wait till it is fixed. Thanks in advance!

wow, one of the best add-ons for thunderbird. i really congratulate, that somebody finally thought to it .but the 2.3.0 version does not work in thunderbird 24.5.0. where can i download older versions like 2.2.0?

A big improvement! Good job! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Somebody should have done this a LONG time ago!

Many times we were doing things like writing segments of our mails in other programs because things like strikethrough weren't available.

This is yet one more reason why rabid-release is such a disaster. TB has also had massive version # inflation and yet the simplest improvements aren't happening...

Lastly, I would request one feature modification: Please make the 5 text colors either changeable or removable through toolbar customization. For those of us who need fancy-schmancy color options the old color picker actually is easier.

Anyways, good job and thank you in advance if you consider my feature request.

Have a good weekend!

Whoa! I've been dreaming to have the time to make this myself! I don't know why Thunderbird didn't do this in the first place. Thanks for doing this! If you provided a way to allow users to customize the colours and customize which buttons they wanted, I'd give you all 5 stars.
