Since the add-on I used to set my folder pane size doesn’t work anymore in the latest Thinderbird, are there any alternatives? I’ve not been able to find one so far. I understand that I can use Ctrl+croll but it will not stick after restarting. Anyone know that might help in Config settings?

You can change the font size in the folder pane using the userChrome.css file.

Code: Select all
/* Thunderbird userChrome.css */

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

#folderTree treechildren::-moz-tree-cell-text {
  color: orange !important; /* test */
  font-family: Arial !important;
  font-size: 12px !important;
}

http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css

Remember to set the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets preference to true, then restart.

BrowseInTab (also on ATN) implements numerous zoom options, including chrome zoom level, which is applied uniformly on trees, tabs, toolbars, icons, etc.

I’ve not been able to try your suggestion yet. I’ve created a Chrome folder in profiles, within there is userChrome.css. In there I pasted your code. Unfortunately, I can’t find the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets preference anywhere in profiles.
Can you please advise.

It is one of the entries in the Config Editor. That can be found - Menu/Edit/Preferences/Advanced/General/Config. Editor.

Many thanks, found it and set. Unfortunately, it didn't make any difference. My emails are still opening in the centre third of the message pane.
Looks like it's not possible to have emails to fill the whole pane, unless using ctrl+scroll wheel.
Best regards,

Have you tried selecting a message in the Thread pane, double click on it and have it open in a new tab?

You can also set the preference to have a message open in a new window.

Tools > Options > General and scroll down to the Reading & Display section.

But, I thought this was about the Folder Pane?

For that I set my Display setting in Windows settings to 125%. Applies to every application.
