MD. RAFSAN SHAHRIAR (FlameBreather)Apr 19, 2024

Great extension but it would be good if i was able to combo custom text color with a default theme of the extension like"sunset". and whenever i put on a custom theme, the scroll bar disapears .please respond if you can do something about it in a new version. and also it would be nice if there were more themes to choose from. some ideas: fire theme, water theme, nature theme, spooky theme etc. but overall the feature is useful and the extension is great. :) :D

Thanks! Yes setting a themes it should ask to replace or disable custom color or not. We continue, check: https://github.com/code-charity/youtube/pull/2161. Didnt hear of the scrollbar issue. (Please report in detail.) (the other way around: Recently hiding scrollbar (as a feature) has stopped for most people.)

thanks! :D while we are understaffed, it is more structured / motivating / productive to do so on Github. (And in turn of doing that right, the answers here will be just simple logical consequences ( could be automated) ). Let me know what you think.
