Hey,

I'm trying to figure out how to have a vim-like (or some other sensible system) keyboard navigation to SeaMonkey. However all the major add-ons seem to be Firefox-only or web-extensions.

Is there a way to somehow add more keyboard shortcuts to SeaMonkey, and possibly even have hints over elements such as links and buttons? Extensions or other hacks welcomed.

You might check here to see if there's a Firefox extension available that can be converted for use in SeaMonkey.

Forum thread about the converter is here: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=2834855

Vimperator

Quick look say, Find, is broken, TypeError: findbar is undefined, which kind of sucks.

Other parts do work, like; g, G, ma (mark a) ...

So thinking its not going to be of much value, like this.

I did, however there is none reported (neither vim or keyboard-navigation focused extension).

Tried to use the converter on that, and at least the options won't open so not really calling it a working version.
