It works! Thank you. "Cookie Monster" extension is not perfect replacement for removed "ask every time" function but it's better than nothing. I'll test it a little more with Adrian's unofficial 2.46 before next official SeaMonkey release will be available.

Windows 7
SeaMonkey 2.40
Expire History by Date 1.2.1

The latest version of the Expire History by Date (1.2.1) does not work after conversion for installation in SeaMonkey. It installs, but history entries older than the user-set number of days are not removed.

Reversion to Expire History by Date 1.2.0 after conversion for installation in SeaMonkey does work.

Zoomr, 7 KB, compressed.
Smart Zoom, 949 KB, uncompressed (on AMO), 287 KB compressed (after converting).

"Options" (about:smartzoom) does not work.
Page opens, but nothing displays.

Hold time before zooming.
Zoomr was a set, fixed time.
I long ago hacked the .xpi, modifying it to 900ms - which works for me.
SZ has a UI (about:smartzoom) to make that change - if you can see it ;-).
Not sure offhand where it stores its Prefs to make the change "manually"?

SZ "animates" as it zooms.
I don't care for that. Rather it would just do its thing & be done.

While zoomed in, if you move your cursor to the edges, it will scroll for you.

Ah, so that is what was happening.
I thought something in there was affecting general.autoScroll, but even setting general.autoScroll to 'false', things were still scrolling.
I definitely don't care for that.
I do NOT care for that.
Not sure if there's an option to disable that or not?

(I going to say this wrong, but...)
Zoomr works on "frame" areas, where SZ can also work on "elements".
Such that hightlighting (& holding) on "Zoom" in Zoomr, fits that "frame" to screen width.
Highlighting (& holding) on "Zoom" in SZ, fits the text element "Smart Zoom" to screen width.

Image

Anyhow, for my needs, Zoomr, which I've been using for some time now, suffices.


I can't find Zoomr--the above link does not work.
Can anyone help me, please.

Just the other day I happened to notice it was pulled from AMO.
Here's my mod'd version:

zoomr-1.1-fx+SM MOD+900ms.xpi
SHA1: 45ce7e58f79a1e75d35c8c23a99d80bd45b30495
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3rgcO ... sp=sharing

Pretty sure the only change I made was in the delay, bootstrap.js, line 226: var holdTime = 900;
(Oh, & I guess it was run through the Converter.)
(I must have the original, somewhere ?, but not on my current computer.)

I can't convert Blue Hell Firewall to work with SM 2.46 64bit.

I had thought, or at least it shows, that Bluhell 2.6.1 is compatible with SeaMonkey "2.48 and later".

The older Version 2.5.3 works (for me) with SeaMonkey 2.40. See if it works for you & 2.46.

Isn't it enough to have https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/a ... atibility/ on seamonkey ?
BTW can I somehow transfer the firefox default theme?

Well, that's succinct. I would have expected the compatibility override to work at least.

You should be OK with it now!

Recently the SM max was changed to - em:maxVersion="2.7a1", so it will now install and will very likely work OK as it doesn't need any conversion as it was always coded to work for SM anyway.

As an user point me it a time ago, I'm mentioning it here too: XML Search Engines Exporter/Importer will not work in SM via the converter, as the add-on uses the search pane of about:preferences as unique entry point to its functions, a page non-existent in SeaMonkey.

I think that I will add official compatibility, but it will take some time.

Pale Moon Commander seems to convert OK.

When clicking the link to download that converted XPI, it gets displayed like text. The add-on converter is serving it with Content-Type: text/html instead of the typical Content-Type: application/x-xpinstall. Right-click > Save Link Target works fine.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Hello,

I just converted and installed Disconnect,
http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/?url=https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/

to SeaMonkey 2.40 running on OpenSuse 13.2 64-bit. Everything seemed to go ok with the conversion and install. Disconnect appears in the list of extensions, but I don't see its presence anywhere in the browser. There is no icon or button anywhere and it is not on the tools menu.

I have been looking for a replacement for Ghostery for a while and was hoping this would be it. How can I figure out what went wrong here?
