I am a frequent user of SeaMonkey. I love it’s functionality. However, lately there is a compatibility issue when using SeaMonkey to visit Linkedin.com. The primary profile images aren’t loading as they do when using other browsers such as Safari, Chrome or FireFox. I assume that Linkedin has made some technical updates that are not comparable with SeaMonkey.

Please advise how I might correct for this issue.

Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

Ok, I just restarted my Mac in safe mode with no change. Safe Mode has done nothing to improve the situation.

FYI:
SeaMonkey v2.49.2
MAC OSX 10.10

    :-k It's probably a typical page with bad browsing sniffing.

    Try changing the SeaMonkey user agent to the Firefox one:

  • Type about:config in the Address Bar and press Enter to display the list of preferences.
  • Ignore the warning message.
  • Right click >> New >> String >> general.useragent.override.linkedin.com
    >>> Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0
  • Restart SeaMonkey.
  • Done!

That preference, useragent override for Linkedin.com that you are noting does not exist.

Ok, I've added a new useragent override for Linkedin, restarted the browser... but no improvement.

Not Boolean ("true" or "false") but "string":

Code: Select all
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0


Copy and paste above "alphanumerical string"...
