I just downloaded SeaMonkey composer to edit my web page and my MacBook Pro running Catalina says it cannot be allowed to run because it does not recognize the developer.
How can I fix this?
Thanks.

Does Catalina need a signed binary?
(Not knowing anything Mac) I'd suspect that is the issue?
Does it offer a way to bypass that requirement?



Open a Mac app from an unidentified developer

Now that assumes that you downloaded SeaMonkey (2.53.2) from SeaMonkey & that its' hash agrees with what they've posted, SHA1SUMS.txt.

Composer is part of SeaMonkey. Since when do you download it separately?

That technique for opening the app from within the apps folder (instead of LaunchPad) works perfectly!
Thanks for you help!
