In the last few days when I click on a link it goes nowhere. But if I right click and open in NEW WINDOW I can open it. How can I fix this?

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

    :-k It may be related to this:

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.14; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.3

    I tested a local 2.49.4 and didn't encounter it but to be on the safe side do not upgrade your OS yet. If it is too late and SeaMonkey becomes unusable shoot me a pm. I can provide a private 2.49.5 prerelease x64 only build if needed. Our new infrastructure is not yet ready.

    If you think it's related to the Mojave 10.14 update.
    Send to frg (SeaMonkey Lead Developer) a private message. So, he can provide, a solution with SeaMonkey 2.49.5 download. Image

I just did a fresh build and Bill hosts it now. It works for me in 10.14 but keep in mind that it is unofficial. If you find a bug please report it.

Where?


The Mac bug does not sound related to the OP's issue?
(That said, can't hurt to have 2.49.5 running.)

    I did try what you suggested but no luck. Actually I've just discovered I only have this problem when I go to GOOGLE and look for something. When it shows me all the choices those are the links I can't get to open! But if I go yo SAFARI or another browser I don't have this problem just when I do it on SM!
