The new shade of red (and the other colours to a lesser extent) is way too dull/dark in my opinion - kind of like a UI element that's disabled.
IMHO if the old colours were too bright, maybe what we're looking for is a more subtle indicator that the tab needs our attention than colouring the title?

See bug 954234.
I could imagine making them a *little* brighter, but I think its already very much at the limit before it becomes glaring. I personally wouldn't change the colors.

#31E631 (green)
#E68231 (orange)
#3131E6 (blue)

If you are trying these colors, be sure to actually test them in instantbird or at least on a gray background, they feel much different that way.
