Hi - I finally am trying to switch from beloved, but aging Seamonkey to Thunderbird/Chrome. I'm just curious - did anyone ever make a theme to make TB appearance look more like Netscape/Mozilla/Seamonkey? (I couldn't find one, but the searching is a bit primitive) Also - The migration was easy when I figured out that what i needed to do was just swap a copy of my SM profile folder in for the one that TB initially created, but are there any surprised on my horizon? Thanks!

beloved, but aging Seamonkey

Not sure what you mean by that. SeaMonkey 2.49.5 was just released. https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/

I've been using 2.57 but it seems like too many websites these days are tailored to Chrome :-( I thought I'd give TB a whirl but I just don't love the look - wondering if anyone had done a traditional Theme - that's all

You can try changing the User Agent String in SeaMonkey to try to make those sites believe you are using, for instance, a current version of Firefox. viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3051786&p=14837315&hilit=user+agent#p14837315

Take a look at these topics for what can be done to TB appearance. Works with TB 60.9 and below. Many of the CSS items may well work in TB 68.0 userChrome.css.

I prefer the customized look of TB more than I want to upgrade to TB 68 once its in general realease. I plan on staying with TB 60.9 for now.
