Those extensions would have to be made explicitly compatible with each other, not really an addon-converter issue.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Mailmindr does not appear anywhere after conversion and installation in SM2.38, is it broken?

Indeed, I can only access the options through the add-ons manager but I don't see them do anything. Does the extension work at all? I suspect the newer versions of Mailmindir are not compatible with SM.

There's no version number for mailmindr in your list, do you happen to know which one was the last working one? :-)

Good Work, thank you!

I have no idea, but it must have been older than one year...

Link Gopher 1.3.3.1-signed works fine after conversion.
I know, I can extract all the links in a webpage through the page info menu, nevertheless I think this extension is useful.

Thanks! :)

Passwords Button 1.1.1 -- a custom button from https://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/t ... ton_maker/ -- converted okay. The file is toolbar-button-f2d93a823a-1.1.1.xpi.

========================================================================================

Never mind. Apparently, a new version of the .xpi file was posted on the Code Fisher site today. Without conversion, it includes SeaMonkey compatibility.

My comment above the ========== was based on what I did two days ago. At that time, I examined the install.rdf file and could not find a reference to SeaMonkey.

Browsec 2.0.2 doesn't seem to work, no toolbar button appears and no IP change.

I had to patch Cookie Monster 1.2.5.1 to get it to work to display the cookies with SM 2.39. It is definitely not working perfectly any more.

Since the permissions manager is broken now, I had to substitute the path to the data manager in content/overlay.js for it to see anything in the "Show Cookie Exceptions" display. Would it have worked better if I had used the path to cookieViewer.xul instead? That one seems to be a bit wonky these days as well.

To avoid getting an XML error with "Show Cookies for All Sites", I had to move the comment markers in content/siteCookies.xul from "<deck ..." to after "</deck>" to the next two items below that to comment out those. I also set the "remove cookie" disable to false instead of true so that I can remove unwanted cookies.

Display Mail User Agent was intended to work with SeaMonkey anyway. All that was necessary was to bump up the max version for SM.

I got a little carried away here. I've now added Glassmyfox as well Glassmybird. Nothing's blown up yet. This way I have more direct control over the mail and browser windows. Seems to work fine. :D

There are a few extensions I wanted to help make compatible with SeaMonkey, but I'm a bit lost at hacking extensions. The converter didn't work for these:

https://www.eff.org/files/privacy-badger-latest.xpi
- Doesn't work when converted. They have a "help wanted" for SeaMonkey.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/reddit-enhancement-suite/
- Doesn't work when converted.

https://ponymotes.net/bpm/betterponymotes.xpi
- Used to work after adding SeaMonkey ID, but stopped after last SeaMonkey update

I'd appreciate any help with these. I'll willing to dig through the code as long as someone can start me off with troubleshooting an extension.

Thanks.

@dmellem

Those are all jetpack extensions, so AFAIK no easy fix.

@morat

Thanks for looking at them. Is there a way to see why they're failing? At least one used to work until recently. Is it something that needs to be updated in the Jetpack library that the converter could patch?
