I just installed Big Sur OS on my iMac and when I launched the latest version of SeaMonkey for the Mac, my folder pane is blank and the hundreds of folders I had on the sidebar are gone. And, the bold header that says Website or Inbox, or Addresses is distorted. Any assistance that anyone has that can help restore my folders, especially would be very much appreciated. Is it that SeaMonkey is not quite fully compatible with Big Sur yet? If so, is there a new version in the works that will allow for full compatibility?

Thanks,


Jim

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

Don't upgrade to Apple Big Sur

It is untested and based on some of the Firefox bugs I saw need more fixes to work fine. I don't have a timeframe for supporting it.

I honestly don't know what that means? Is that like opening SeaMonkey in a webmail type thing?

Big Sur is not supported yet. You can try the unofficial SeaMonkey version:

James,

I saw your post after Dan's. I actually work for Apple and there are many reasons for me needing to upgrade to Big Sur and I already did. SeaMonkey gets my mail OK, but the problems I mentioned with the folders and some other right click options lost, etc. are gone and inconvenient, but I've been using SeaMonkey for many, many years and I just, I guess would have to live with it until an upgrade to SeaMonkey is available. Is there another Mozilla mail program with the same features as SeaMonkey that might be immediately compatible with Big Sur?

What is the "unofficial SeaMonkey version" mean that frg spoke about?
