Hi,

I tried Seamonkey 2.46 recently, liked it, but couldn't configure x's to close tabs or how to open links in new tabs with left click only .

Changing values in about:config didn't take.

For x's to close tabs, SeaTab X 2.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

Thanks for your help. That works. Anyone have a complete list of working SM extensions, I found before posting here that so many are for FF only.

A drag and go extension would solve the "open links in a new tab" issue.


Not used Seamonkey in a long time, is the old configurability still present somewhere? I used to edit files in SM and FF to change settings. I forget their names and locations.

I see that searches open in a new tab with ctrl & enter, any way to change this to Enter alone like in some versions of K-Meleon?

Thanks, tried the converted "links open in new tab" addon, it didn't work in Seamonkey, did in Firefox

What are you Seamonkey guys doing? Opening links in new tab from left click or drag and go is browser stone age stuff.

When I want to open a link in a new tab, I just middle-click the link.

BTW that also works on the Back, Forward, and Reload buttons.
