Quote Colors


The Quote Colors extension for Mozilla Thunderbird, the Mozilla Mail & Newsgroup client and SeaMonkey adds an user interface for configuring text and background colors for different quote levels when displaying messages (up to 5 levels currently).
The settings apply to mail and newsgroups messages, either in plain text or HTML. For graphical quoting (HTML style) you can adjust the appearance of the borders around the quoted paragraphs. Some other basic message options are available, too.

This extension and the default colors are based on a tip from the Thunderbird Help site where different quote level colors were realised via userContent.css.

Quote Colors is also listed at (AMO) where you can read what others think about it and leave your own comments.

Quote Colors 0.3 released
Besides code cleanup and many small fixes and internal improvements, Quote Colors 0.3 offers one new feature visible to users: quote level colors will now be repeated once after the fifth level. This allows visual distinction of quotes up to level 10 now.
Quote Colors 0.3 is compatible with Thunderbird 2.0 and 3.0, SeaMonkey 1.x and 2.0. The Mozilla suite is no longer supported since it's outdated by now and replaced by the SeaMonkey suite.

Quote Colors 0.3 (Beta 2) released
This new beta version features a lot internal changes for improving code quality. While it does not introduce new features, it now supports Thunderbird 2, Thunderbird 3 and SeaMonkey 2. If no bugs are found, it will be released as final version 0.3, so please try it out and report anything that may look strange or broken.

Quote Colors 0.3 (Beta 1) released
Unfortunately, the last two beta versions of Thunderbird 3 (Beta 3+4) introduced some internal changes which broke Quote Colors. All of you who are already using these latest versions are invited to try out Quote Colors 0.3 Beta 1. Thanks for your feedback!
Please note: this beta version only features compatibility fixes for Tb3 (no new features). Thus, it cannot be used with Thunderbird 2 or SeaMonkey 2.

Quote Colors 0.2.9 released
Quote Colors 0.2.9 was released to add support for the current development releases of Thunderbird 3 and SeaMonkey 2.
