    Hi there and thanks for this great tool!

    Is it possible to highlight incoming/outgoing sessions other than using bold?
    For example, I would like all requests with "error.gif" in them to have a yellow background color so I can easily spot them when they pop up.

    Ideally, I would like to simply right-click a session, mark it with a color and have all future similar sessions be highlighted with the same color.

    The problem with the interface you propose is how exactly Fiddler would identify a "similar" session-- there are an infinite number of criteria you could choose.

    Fortunately, you can specify such criteria yourself.

    E.g. Click Rules > Customize Rules. Scroll to OnBeforeRequest and add:

      if (oSession.uriContains("error.gif"))
        oSession["ui-backcolor"] = "yellow";
        oSession["ui-color"] = "#000000";

    Save the file and all future requests whose URL contains "error.gif" will show in black on yellow. You can obviously customize the colors and identification criteria to taste.
