I wrote a review yesterday, where I said "Great product but needs better colour choice".

Last night developer replied pointing to how to change the colours, checked, did it, and it's great!

Not only a really useful add-on, but superb support too! - Thanks

Great extension, this should have been a native feature from the getgo!

Great Add-on, I have used previous versions.
For some reason however the Background Account colours are taking over, and I am almost unable to read the addresses etc, making it more unless unusable. I am now using Default (Awful) Mozilla theme is this why?

I appreciate what this add-on does. But the problem is that it conflicts with "Account Colors" [https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-GB/thunderbird/addon/account-colors/?src=userprofile]. Both add-ons try to alter the colors of the same fields, resulting in a bit of a mess.

I like a few of the features of both add-ons, and the fact that I can't use both together is really frustrating. I suppose this is the down-side of allowing independent developers to build extensions to the same core application.

I don't suppose there's a chance of you joining forces with the "Account Colors" team to create one coherent extension?

If I could, I would give it 6 stars!
But, the color themes, could it also be used if choosing an account in the list. Just the theme color as background for that line?

Very useful when you have a lot of accounts. I really appreciate the safeguards. Saved my life so many times!

A few things though:
- I somewhat disagree with the account coloring theme... :-) I know this can be changed from the add-on settings, but they seem to have disappeared with TB 68.3.1 (or is it me who can't seem to find them?).
- It would be very useful to have shortcuts to quickly select an account when prompted. Typing the first letter of the Sender name is not sufficient as they may be very close if not identical.

Without these 2 remarks, I'd give 5 stars.
Keep it up!

It would be great if this add-on gets compatible with Thunderbird 68.

Nice, but don't work with HTML "mailto-links". Is this possible?

Very nice, thanks!
Would be possible to implement this (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1518025) feature request in this addon?

Meaning, for selected accounts, hitting reply to a mail to
user+facebook@domain.org
would also default to the identity
user+facebook@domain.org
?

Would be a good extension if it didn't make style changes to the compose window. With this extension enabled it modifies the compose window to have a horrendously ugly yellow/orange border color and white text on white background for the to,from,subject fields, which makes it completely unusable. Please remove style changes and will use again and update review.

Colors can be easily disabled in Identity Chooser's settings.

Potentially good ... But, different to what the dev says, in the latest TB, I see no setting for Identity chooser under the addons setting..?

Thunderbird changed the location where users can access addon settings with version 60. Please check this support topic: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/new-thunderbird-60#w_new-menu-location-of-add-on-options

Die Auswahl beim weiterleiten einer Nachricht hat einen etwas verwirrenden Charakter - fälschlicherweise nahm ich an die Nachricht nur an eigene Adressen weiterleiten zu können.
Ansonsten top

Hallo,

das kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Bitte nimm Kontakt per Email auf. Die Adresse befindet sich hier auf der linken Seite im Bereich More information.

When using a dark theme, the hard coded colors make own address unreadable, recipients' addresses invisible and the mail subject unreadable...
With the default theme or a light one, there is no problem...

Currently, the font or text color of a new mail window, for the "To / Cc / Bcc" fields needs to be more readable, especially when many are color blind to red.

The "Subject" field box, please change the text color to black, the default color. It is very hard to read with a grey or light grey, which is a bad choice for accessibility - readability reasons.

Text Shadow for the toolbar add-on. Again light text color with white text shadow make it very hard to read. Lessen the spread of the text shadow, use darker shadow color with the light text color. You can also use Text shadow to create a text stroke (see here for the info: https://css-tricks.com/adding-stroke-to-web-text/ ).

Dark text color to light backgrounds and Light text color to dark backgrounds is the best for correct readability and contrast.

Basically make things easily readable in all cases, it will look far more professional.

This fix can either come as a feature so we can change the text color or you can reset it properly in your next update.

Thanks
3 stars because of this issue.

Are you using an alternative theme? Identity Chooser works very well with the default theme. If you need to change the color for an identity you can do this in Identity Chooser's setting which you'll find in Thunderbird's addon manager.

If you have further questions, please get in touch via email. You'll find the link to my email address on the right side of the page.
