Tonight (2/22/21) I tried to reconstruct what I did last Thursday (2/18/21) morning by using my SM History.
Somehow I managed to forget a 10:00 AM Zoom meeting.
I've not been happy with the changes to the History in SM recently. Somehow I serendipitously stumbled upon this format:

I would like to understand how to get back to it again. Can any of you experts tell me what to tell SM History so I can get back here if I chance to change it?

It helps me see that I booted my machine at 9:30 AM and saw something in my email that started me searching and I forgot the meeting entirely.

thanks,
baumgrenze

Yeah, me too. Unfortunately, it was forced by changes in Firefox 56 and later:

The Bookmarks Manager has switched its name to Library, and now also includes the History list. When invoking History, the Library will be shown with the History list selected. The extensive modifications were needed because of Mozilla Gecko platform API changes.


If you know good coder who wants to participate in SeaMonkey development then MAYBE there is some chance to get History's functionality like it was in 2.49.x (and previous) versions of SeaMonkey.

BTW You can update your SeaMonkey now to latest 2.53.6 version:

Are you looking for the meeting or want to know how to open the History dialog?

To open the dialog use Go > History or the Ctrl+H key combination.

To find the event.

Have you tried typing Zoom or some other term in the search bar of that History dialog?

Selected one of the other dates in the left pane and looked?

Suggestion, why not use the Calendar function in SeaMonkey Mail & Newsgroups to create an event with a reminder?
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
