Lightning is a binary extension, you should use only the Lightning version built from the exact same Gecko (and XPCOM) version as the mailer. If you can lay hands on a SeaMonkey built "with Calendar" (as the current trunk builds are), you should use it together with the Lightning that came with it (and which installs as APPDIR/extensions/{e2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103}/, next to the built-in themes), not with any older — or newer — Lightning version in your profile.



Wait, isn't Lightning automatically installed in Seamonkey now?

I didn't check the tracking flags. I know it is fixed for 2.50 a1/a2 and the new 2.51a1 (the latter not yet available for other than Windows as of this writing AFAICT). I didn't know the fix had been backported to other branches.
Best regards,
Tony

In theory yes and it is in the nightly and aurora versions. But because of a different bug with l10n building and add-ons we were unable to do so for 2.46. The bug will likely also not be fixed for the upcoming 2.48.

Wait, try reading what people write in reply to you. Wait -

But because of a different bug with l10n building and add-ons we were unable to do so for 2.46.

So, shouldn't they have taken that out of the bug then? What am I missing?

You're missing that the reason Lightning isn't included is because of a DIFFERENT bug.

The bug you linked is fixed in 2.46. I do my own SeaMonkey builds, and I now use a special build time switch to not build Lightning.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

So, you are saying Lightning is included and installed as default for 2.46, but that is actually broken because of a different bug? Should Bug 516026 be reopened then, with a dependency on fixing your bug? What is that bug number?

Lightning was supposed to be included, but they had to leave it out, along with DOM Inspector and Chatzilla. But all 3 can be installed from AMO, I think.
