Well, seeing that you used the term "they" instead of "I", I kinda figured that out already. But without having both the "they" and the full context - all of which is in the link(s) - it's impossible to assess the info you're going from.

Happy New Year, JodyThornton. :)

Frank Lion has since sought clarification. That is not the same as chaging my stance.

I have sought clarification for a specific reason and it is not the reason some may think.

Again not seeking anything argumentative Frank Lion - change of stance OR clarification. And no I didn't estimate any reason.
All I'm saying is that the outlook for SeaMonkey looks grim. I just look out the window and call the sky "blue".

Nonetheless, and more importantly. Happy New Year Frank Lion.

I didn't say you were, but when someone assigns the wrong reasons to the things I write, then I always correct it. Otherwise, what they write would drift into mythical 'fact' over time.

Heads-up for OpenSUSE users: SeaMonkey 2.46 is now in the build service repositories and should appear in the regular update repositories soon. Note that since DOMi and ChatZilla are no longer distributed with the official releases due to the repack problems with the localized versions, you may receive a conflict warning with the seamonkey-dom-inspector-2.40 and/or seamonkey-irc-2.40 packages if installed. The only way to get the seamonkey-2.46 RPM installed is to accept their removal. As with the official releases, that doesn't matter for existing profiles which will retain their respective installed versions of those extensions. However. Lightning 5.1a1 has to be installed manually for here.

Does the "Seamonkey" internal updater (under help menu) no longer work?

Worked fine for me with a 2.40 release installation on Windows 7, which found the 2.46 update and applied it without any issues. If it doesn't find anything for you, download the full installer from http://www.seamonkey-project.org/ and run it instead. However, make sure that your processor supports SSE2 (since you have FF 51.0 running, apparently it does).

For the record, SM 2.46 has now been installed on my XP and 7 64-bit PCs and all is well.

Many thanks to the developers for their great work!

I don't suppose anyone knows how to make SeaMonkey use original UI fonts from the system menus (in Puppy Linux). I'll check there too.

New Forum member here. Signed up just to tell you how great the new 2.46 browser is running here and it's also running SeaTab X 2 add-on.

Using SeaMonkey 2.46 on 2 computers. Both running Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit and both are using the add-on SeaTab X 2 with no issues at all.

I love that add-on for closing out of tabs and it doesn't matter that the support page says it's not supported in this 2.46 release version of SeaMonkey. It's working just fine on both of my PC's.
One PC is a 1 year old that I built using an Asus mobo and an i5-4690K. The other is a 2008 Dell running with a SSD.

This browser has been running flawlessly since I made the upgrade right after the release.

Thank You.....Nice Work!!!

The "internal updater" finally "took", and updated me to 2.46. How does it choose when to do this?

Do you mean in the interface or the content? For interface, you can use a userChrome.css file to specify what font you want to use in whatever element(s). For content, you can set that from Preferences > Appearance > Fonts.

SM 2.46 should work on WinXP as long as the XP computer has a CPU that supports SSE2 (Intel Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64 [K8] or better). Otherwise SM 2.46 will refuse to install nor run on Windows based PCs that have old legacy CPUs that don't have SSE2 support.
