User Help for Seamonkey and Mozilla Suite
Here's a few more TB extensions which work fine after conversion.

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.
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:
- Doesn't work when converted. They have a "help wanted" for SeaMonkey.
- Doesn't work when converted.
- 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.
Those are all jetpack extensions, so AFAIK no easy fix.
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?
I thought SeaMonkey was capable of running Jetpack add-ons per se since v 2.32 ?
Anyway you can check the Error Console (Ctrl-Shift-J) and look for related message(s) (probably will be error, rather than warning or message).
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
One of them did work fine, but broke when I upgraded from SM2.32 to 2.38. I can try to isolate which version broke it if that helps.
OK, I installed SM2.35 and one add-on (BPM) works again, though the other two do not even after being converted. I don't see any related messages on the error console (at any level).
The Firefox Add-on GrabMyBooks (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo ... src=search) is full compatible to Seamonkey, when using the converter.
Config Descriptions 1.0 is described as "Not available for SeaMonkey 2.39". It does work if the SeaMonkey version in the extension's install.rdf file is changed to 2.*.
If your AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey https://unofficialseamonkeynews.wordpress.com/2016/03/19/amo-browsing-add-on-eases-conversion-and-installation-of-ff-and-tb-add-ons/does no longer work after AMO has changed to new Style https://unofficialseamonkeynews.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/new-style-at-amo/ you sould try this solution https://unofficialseamonkeynews.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/new-style-at-amo/#comment-22.
I have converted policeman https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... policeman/ and popup controller https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... p-control/ - they both work, but there are no icons in the toolbar - so they can only be disabled in the addons, not controlled with full function. Is there a way to get the icons from the xpi - has anyone had this occur with other conversions?
I used 7-zip and toolbarbutton.js is in lib\ui - it is the same in both the seamonkey converted and the firefox original xpi. I dragged and dropped toolbarbutton.js into the seamonkey addons page, it seamonkey said it is from an unknown host and appears to be corrupt - is there a way to get the toolbarbutton.js to show and work in the seamonkey toolbar?
