Is there a way to increase the width of the left-side label menu in Gmail? Maybe with the help of some Greasemonkey script?

Okay completely misread the question the first time. Let's try again!

This can be done using the stylish extension for firefox. Once installed (it's in the status bar) use it to write a new blank style. In the content area put:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("mail.google.com") {

    .Bs.nH > tr > td.Bu:first-child > .nH { width: 250px !important; }


Obviously you can change 250px to however wide you want the labels menu. Save that and you should be good to go.

This CSS selector works as expected: .no > .nH:first-child –  desolat Aug 12 '10 at 12:21
Perhaps we have a different gmail version. The selector you mention doesn't refer to the label menu for me. –  dannybolabo Aug 12 '10 at 12:24
Got the new version released yesterday. Anyway, got it working. –  desolat Aug 12 '10 at 12:30
@desolat Good to hear. Also: the new gmail contacts is great! –  dannybolabo Aug 12 '10 at 12:33
