I was just going to write that, after 3 cups of coffee, I had found the=20
information in prefs.js .
There it has the format

Consider X and Z as not for human use.
Y is how SeaMonkey has coded the color.
I can copy that content to a file which I can manipulate for my needs.
[standard caveat - don't edit prefs.js directly ]
