stylesheet help with non-message view

Reported by Christian Hopps | March 7th, 2015 @ 03:01 AM

I've created a dark themed style sheet loosely based on solarized theme. I'd like to also apply this same theme to the message list view, but can't seem to figure it out. What do I need to do to change the colors and fonts used by the message-list view (and other views than the message viewer for that matter)?

    • State changed from “new” to “closed”

    You can change the font by switching focus to the view and use “Format ▸ Show Fonts”. This doesn't work for the headers view though, but there is a hidden preference for that.

    But that is the current limit of customizing those parts.

    I'd love to see your theme if it's something you are willing to share.

    Here is a Screenshot. I need to figure out how to change the background of the composition window as well. Here’s the relevant (trimmed) css:

    @media screen {
        body {
            font: Menlo;
            font-size: 13px;
            color: #eee8d5;
            background-color: #002b36;
        a:link { color: #6c71c4; }
        a:active { color: #dc322f; }
    /* General styling of quotation blocks (and colors for level 2 and upwards)*/
    blockquote {
            margin: 0 0 5px;
            padding-left: 5px;
            border-left: 2px solid #cb4b16;
            color: #cb4b16;
    /* Specific styling of level 1 quotation blocks */
    blockquote blockquote {
        border-left: 2px solid #859900;
        color: #859900;
    /* Discrete links in quoted text */
    blockquote a:link { color: #6c71c4; }
    blockquote a:active { color: #dc322f; }
    blockquote blockquote a:link { color: #6c71c4; }
    blockquote blockquote a:active { color: #dc322f; }
