OK, I moved on from 2.94.4 some time ago and went with WG9's unofficial version. it has worked well for some time now, but recently, it is failing with multiple financial sites. I can log in to some of them, but can't do anything there, most options are greyed out. I tried his 2.53 version which can login, however, some (not all) of the extensions that worked with 2.49.5 no longer work with 2.53. I can work around that, but think it is time to figure out what to do, going down the road.

I do not like Firefox, nor the newer iterations of Thunderbird, so am invested in having a SeaMonkey that can handle the web, and in particular, financial sites.

Thanks for listening.

The sites are probably doing incorrect user agent sniffing and / or deliberatly shut browsers they don't want to support out. Nothing SeaMonkey can do here. You can set a user agent override and see if it works. 2.49.5 is planned to be the last 2.49 version.

Hi FRG,

Yup.... tried that. I have moved on to 2.53 and have managed to kludge my way through all the extensions that I desire to use. Will see. So far so good with my financial sites.

note that WG9s SM 2.49.5 unofficial has not been updated for a while (the Windows ports have not been updated since mid-Jan 2019 and the Linux/Mac ports were last updated early Feb. 2019)

in July 2019 I will permanently stop using any SM 2.49.x version (that's around the time Firefox will release a v68.0 ESR) and will run SM 2.53 and perhaps beta test the 2.57 version from WG9S

What sites?

some (not all) of the extensions that worked with 2.49.5 no longer work with 2.53

Which?
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.19) Gecko/20110420 SeaMonkey/2.0.14 Pinball CopyURL+ FetchTextURL FlashGot NoScript

I can take this back since wg9s is recently providing new unofficial SM 2.49.5 builds this May 2019

latest wg9s build for 2.49.5 on his web site was dated 5/16/2019

Technically OT, but probably of interest: looks like Seamonkey 2.49.5 official candidate binaries are starting to appear. So far just linux-i686-it. Using it now. :)
