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.

Kindly,
Stian

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.
