Btw, another suggestion would be start a new member with a name fitting the converter. The password could be shared with the folks who are the helpers. Everyone with the password would be able to respond to PMs.

Thanks. I imagine this thread could be both for reporting problems and reporting working extensions, open for everyone. If it doesn't attact too much spam it could work, I suppose.

But how would a new member help? Users would still need to set up accounts here in order to write, I think it's important to make it as easy as possible. Many people use the converter every day but most of them don't post their results here. Besides, an open discussion has the advantage that anyone can respond and help (not only the editor group) and I'm sure in some cases that will be enough, for example someone may incorrectly report a problem due to their specific configuration.

2 Pane
Bookmarks 0.6.2013040601.1-signed

also works after conversion, but probably I'm going to disable it: this extension
put a delete (bookmark) button at the bottom of the panel, and I have already deleted
a bookmark by mistake... :oops:

After that, you always can open the Bookmarks Manager ('Library'), go to the original container folder of the deleted bookmark and press Ctrl+Z ... :wink:

Yes, you are right! :shock: :)

But there is another problem: the right click menu don't work.
I noticed it only now, because normally I don't use the right click menu on the side panel.

We would have to convince Kerz to open SeaMonkey Support for guest posting. While the thread isn't likely to attract much spam SeaMonkey Support would. Your moderators have seen many more shemale gallery posts in Site discussion than the users have. :)

Bringing it up in the mod shack didn't excite much comment. My best suggestion would be to edit the first post ( or start a new post in SeaMonkey Support) for these reports. If the folks don't want to register here you could include a gmail (or its ilk) address that could be read by everyone involved with these problems.

The problem here is that we are set up for general support and discussion. While discussion about the converter is great here most of the nitty gritty now needs a home that can offer basic backbone support. Did you ever contact OSU/OSL?

This might be a good (currently unused) resource for providing information and links to the converter:
Code: Select all
12:37   Ratty   According to John-Galt the reason we have a blank space in the discovery pane is that our carousel is empty. So we can fill it with links to the addon converter etc
12:38   Ratty   we may need admin access
12:38   IanN   ooo, that sounds interesting
12:38   rsx11m   Ratty: yes, would be good to have
12:39   Ratty   need to ask Mossop who in Firefox land is responsible for updating their Carousel and what the procedure is
12:40   Ratty   I'd do it but I have too much other things to do
12:42   IanN   well if we know the procedure, just need to find someone to carry it out

ScrapBook 1.5.13.1-signed
It appears this extension works normally after conversion -- create notes and catalogs, stores Web pages and selection.

Navigational Sounds 1.2.4.1-signed

Seems to be working just fine after conversion. Tested on Windows XP with SeaMonkey 2.33.1. Windows 8+ users will need to assign the "Start Navigation" sound to test.

Tints browser tabs with a color specific to the website loaded. This helps you identify tab contents based on a distinct visual cue.

Ha! Two things: compatibility likely depends on the theme you are using, and as that is one ancient extension which I doubt it will be around on AMO much longer... I'm actually surprised it's still there.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

CanvasBlocker 0.1.6-Release
Working after conversion, pass the "canvas" test on browserleaks.
Notifications, whitelist /blacklist domains, block/fake the readout: seems all ok.

QuickImage 1.4.1.1-signed
Also is working fine after conversion.

EDIT: added release numbers.
