I need to change the icmp color, first i tried to change the ICMP coloring rules to red with black text, then i applied the filter and it only works for ICMPv6 as you can see on the picture which should work for ICMP also.

Then i tried to create a new coloring rule for icmp filter only and it still didn't work, the text is always pink

Could someone tell me whats wrong please, thanks.

Select one of the ICMP packets then expand the Frame section in the Packet Details.
What coloring rule is being applied to the pink frames?
Example for default rules:

[Coloring Rule Name: ICMP]
[Coloring Rule String: icmp || icmpv6]

[Coloring Rule Name: ___conversation_color_filter___01]
[Coloring Rule String: ip.addr eq and ip.addr eq]

So clearly it's not the good one, how can i change that ? Thanks for reply.

On the View menu: Colorize Conversation → Reset coloring
Also clean up the coloring rules that were added as "New coloring rule"
(It sometimes helps to toggle colors (View->Colorize Packet List) after making changes to coloring rules)
