[OS X TeX] TeXShop 4.10 lost my editor color preferences

But how do I get back the syntax colors I had before?

I _may_ have started with your HSTeXShopSyntaxColors.sh script for those, but I may have also made changes.

Did TS 4.09/4.10 simply discard all my changes and replace them with new ones? (If so, that’s very bad!)

Click on `Save Edited Theme'. You can then choose that theme for you Lite and/or Dark Mode Theme from the popup menu near the top, left. Finally press OK and you'll have your syntax colors back.
