Can't add edit chrome.css for Thunderbird

Postby mountainhick on Tue Oct 30, 2012 10:49 am

i want to mod T-bird to get rid of the tab bar. I am running mint xfce on a wee little netbook, and every extra toolbar takes up much needed space.

I found this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=7883365

I checked show hidden files but did not find a Chrome.css file, just the thunderbird file under etc folder with a syspref.js file.

I opened gedit and tried to save a new file in this folder as advised by Andy in the above thread

"How 'bout this in userChrome.css?

Code: Select all
.tabmail-tabs {
display: none !important;
}
"


Gedit would not let me save the file in that folder



Thoughts?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Anyone?

Is there a way to get permission from Linux Mint for Gedit to add a chrome css file to Thunderbird?

That URL you included is from 2009. And. In a few quick searches for config info for 'userChrome.css' etc. ... all the results are also circa 2008-2009.

While some users with 'old' Firefox / Thunderbird profiles that have been move from machine to machine over time may still have 'userChrome.css', 'userChrome-example.css', 'userContent-example.css' in their '../cache' directory, I don't think that current Firefox / Thunderbird use the userChrome.css config file(s) any longer?

In my case http://littlewebwagon.net/mint.html was good, but I had to name the file userContent.css instead of userChrome.css to make it work.
Thanks to the topic in https://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_mes ... erbird_3_0
fort that.

I use the setting:
body {
-moz-transform: scale(1.2);
-moz-transform-origin:left top;
}

Thanks!
