I'll take a look, but I warn you if I see the word 'grippy' in it, I'm pressing the #back-button. :)

It is only a gripping tale without a grippy

This isn't in your Compatibility Table, but I sucessfully converted Tab to Window. So if you are still maintaining that table, it would be a good thing to add. :)

Cheers! :turn-l:

Although Self-Destruction Cookies will not convert well (according to the official table), there is an alternative that is built for SeaMonkey: Cookies Exterminator. (No need to convert!) It has the same functionality, maybe even a little more as it allows import/export of your whitelist & blacklist. There is a support thread, too, which is worth a look, especially at some recent posts regarding privacy, even if you don't end up installing the extension.

BTW, the author is committed to developing "legacy" extensions (though mainly for PM). Although I cannot speak for him, my impression is he might be persuaded to fork a specific extension that you want for SeaMonkey but cannot successfully convert from FF. He is a pretty nice guy and responsive to user feedback.

Hope this helps! :)

I tried running the converter on the Video DownloadHelper 6.3.1 plugin. I used the default converter settings.

The converter ran fine, and the install on SeaMonkey 2.40 ran fine.
However, the Video DownloadHelper icon never appeared (I tried restarting SeaMonkey twice), so there's nothing you can do with it.

I dumped VHD a while ago and never looked back. I'm now using NetVideoHunter on SM 2.46 and it's working well.
