Sorry I missed this, the latest post, now it's working!
Thank you!November 23, 2017 at 11:46 pm #20098Anabella PellensParticipant
Rex Reed, I installed both FireFox 52.5 ESR and ColorfulTabs 31.2.3 as suggested by Shivanand and it is working perfectly.
You need to disable the automatic updates and stay put until it is safe to go back to Quantum.November 24, 2017 at 3:22 am #20099Jennifer MeniteParticipant
Thanks for all the work you've done on CT over the years. Just updated to FF57 and I see CT is broken. Just leaving a comment here so when it gets updated for 57+, I'll know (hopefully).November 28, 2017 at 1:18 pm #20103Shivanand SharmaParticipant
Version 32.2 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/colorfultabs/versions/32.2 has an options screen where you can customize the saturation, brightness or the colors as well as the theme colors (as long as ColorfulTabs doesn't work with other themes). Will add feature to have a header image also in a future version.

I tried the newest version, with FF 57, but, unless I'm doing something wrong, I still can't get it to work like before. So, I'll just wait patiently until there is one that works like before. But, still thanks.

As has been said time and again, ColorfulTabs wouldn’t work at all until this Firefox bug is fixed: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1320585December 1, 2017 at 1:58 pm #20108Andy KParticipant
I need ColorfulTabs more than I need FF Quantum. Since FF 57 doesn't support ColorfulTabs, then my solution is to remain on FF 56.0.2. This works fine, just like it did before FF 57 came along to ruin things.
To get the benefit of the Multi-process feature in FF 53-56, you need to revert to ColorfulTabs 31.2.0, but that is not a problem. Just remember to disable auto-updates to FF and to CT. If they ever fix FF57 to support this add-on, then I will consider upgrading to it.
In the meantime, I want to thank Shivanand for all his unpaid work to develop and support his wonderful add-on over the years. No other browser for Windows has anything like it.December 1, 2017 at 2:14 pm #20112
Thanks Andy. It's a privilege to have users like you.December 14, 2017 at 3:03 pm #20126Tony BarnhillParticipant
Thanks for your hard work! Very appreciated.
How do I open the options menu? Thanks.December 14, 2017 at 4:51 pm #20127
Just go to Tools > Addons > ColorfulTabs > PreferencesDecember 14, 2017 at 10:55 pm #20130Steve ShankerParticipant
Shivanand, thanks for all the hard work...it's getting better.
One thing, is it possible to make a color table rather than using the color codes? Gets a bit confusing trying to remember them...

Thanks. When I click on preferences, I just see an about page with some textboxes for manually designating hex color codes. Nothing like the options page I see in your screenshots. Thanks Again.January 14, 2018 at 4:47 am #20141SpringerParticipant
Me too! I don't know about anyone else, but for months I have been looking for a replacement - I thought I would be a steadfast Firefox user until the day I died, but I have absolutely had it. All of the changes wouldn't necessarily be bad in and of themselves, but when I first adopted Mozilla many years back, they really WERE all about the user and FAR and AWAY the single most user friendly browser I thought we'd ever see. Sadly, my Mozilla appears to have been swept away with the rest of the production line, cookie cutter browsers of the "We think One Size Fits All, and WE'LL let YOU know what that size is!" category.
I too had a moment of sheer exhilaration with the announcement of Quantum, and promptly downloaded it, praying it would somehow even remotely resemble the Firefox I knew and loved! All of us who were sucked in to this fantasy are now painfully aware, it was not to be. The Firefox, worse, the MOZILLA, that now exists behind the curtain is completely unrecognizable (and a complete and total disappointment) to me. Unless MY Mozilla returns, I personally, will NOT!

Hello all... I'm new here...
I've just found ColorfulTabs, and am currently running Firefox 58.0.2 with ColorTabs 32.2.4. I'm not sure what the expected behavior is, seeing that this thread is all about how it's not working.
What I'm seeing is one tab is colorized, and its color changes as I go to new pages. Is this what's expected at this point?

I am not a developer.
How can we ordinary users lobby Mozilla to get them to follow your suggestion and allow styling of individual tabs?
A few thousand people noisily saying "Hey Mozilla. I am switching to Chrome because the changes in Quantum that broke Colorful Tabs are totally unacceptable."
Is there anyone we can write to?
