Pane background colors

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

You can change the background colors in Thunderbird's (or Mozilla Suite's) preview pane, folders pane, and thread pane (message-list pane), etc. by modifying your prefs.js and userChrome.css files as described below.

For the preview pane, put this in your "prefs.js" file:

// Previewpane Background color
user_pref("browser.display.background_color", "#F1F1F1");

For the folders pane and thread pane, put this in your "userChrome.css" file:

/*  Folderpane & Messagepane */
treechildren {
background-color: #F1F1F1 !important; }

For other color codes, you can use this color blender.
