I set SM to launch Browser and Email Client.
In a computer Browser start before Email Client.
In a other Browser start after Email Client.
Do it is possible to set priority of start?

I set SM to launch Browser and Email

How?
Through; Edit | Preferences -> Appearance - When SeaMonkey starts ?
Or from a command-line?

On my end, Mail looks to load before Browser.
But I suppose something like this should work?
Code: Select all
start seamonkey.exe
wait 1
seamonkey.exe -mail
Fire 750, bring back 250.

Yes it does. Do Mail startup first (via Edit | Preferences -> Appearance - When SeaMonkey start) then restart and then do Browser startup as well. Upon restarts they will maintain the order of Mail starting before Browser.

Quite why anyone is bothered by the order, considering they both open within 0.25 of a second of each other, is beyond me. But sometimes it's better just to answer stuff like this, rather than it dragging on for 3 pages.

Under Linux? IMHO SeaMonkey sometimes behaves different under Linux than under Windows. Some things can be changed in SM config but some depends on OS.

AFAIK some Linux distros UI offer advanced shortcut management. Maybe therube's idea with command will work there.

Yeah, I know. But feel free to grab a Linux LiveCD and test it for yourself. I only tested on M$.

Btw I was using Linux up until 2018 and also ran this sticky here for 2 years -

Maybe so, but the guy states they don't want to do that route.

Btw how many multiples of 0.25 seconds did it take you to write your post?

I'm afraid you need to "touch command line" to star e-mail and then browser. Tested it under Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon with Polish language so I'm not sure if English names are correct.

1) in e.g. you Home directory/folder create a new "empty document" and name it e.g. "SeaMonkey_startup.sh"
2) edit this new SH file with simplest text editor (to avoid extra formatting)
3) paste this:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash

seamonkey& -mail
sleep 5
seamonkey -browser

.. and save file (Ctrl+s); ampersand "&" must be after first "seamonkey" only so if you want to change just don't move entire line.
4) click RMB on this file and choose "Properties"
5) in tab "Permissions" check/mark something that means "Allow to execute this file as program" and close this window.
6) create shortcut for SeaMonkey
7) click RMB (Right Mouse Button) on it and then LMB on Edit,
8) in middle field (Command) click "Browse" button and search for above SH file, choose, click OK and OK.
9) click on shortcut to execute/run SeaMonkey and it should start e-mail client first and then Browser.

Works?

Sorry but I don't get it. But if you're referring to my poor English language knowledge then I know it suck so hard it could work as water pump in coal mine... :-"

Don't overthink it, your English is fine. I was making a rhetorical point about the requested non-command route -

Well... I'm starting e-mail client first and then Ctrl+1 for Browser. Definitely "non-command route"... :wink:

Yeah. It happens when I've got a lot of work to do IRL... #-o
