I am having issues with the current version 2.49.4, so I checked and sure enough there is a later version.
I tried it and the new beta version but as soon as it installs, Seamonkey stops responding.

Any help appreciated

Crystal ball is in the attic so you need to provide more information.

Operating system; antivirus; which version; which language; which hardware; tested with new profile? and so on

So I finally contacted the people on the Seamonkey support list, since I thought everyone was gone from this forum. *sniffs*
They said I had downloaded the x64 version and in order to install that I'd need to uninstall the x86 version.
So I just installed the x86 version and all is well.

It isn't. Even side by side x86 and x64 generally work. Only specific tasks like mailing from the explorer under Windows might fail. I have yet to see a failed x64 when the OS supports it and x86 runs. All points to external factors bad antivirus or something else.

This is the message that I got from the Overlords of Seamonkey: (which makes perfect sense to me)

We have been advised that, if you are trying to install the x64 version
of 2.49.5, you must first remove the x32 version (only version) of 2.49.4.

P.S. I have no antivirus
