I rarely use this command, but I recently tried to manually open a .xpi add-on file and discovered that the command didn't work on SeaMonkey v2.46 Candidate Build 9 installed on my Windows 7 Pro work laptop. Executing the command either by selecting File --> Open File... or by hitting Ctrl+O appears to do nothing. Then I came home and tried the same command on v2.46 Candidate Build 6 on my old Windows Vista Ultimate laptop and got the same (lack of) result.

I haven't tested this on previous official versions of SeaMonkey, so I can't tell if this is a new bug or not. I ended up solving my problem by dragging the .xpi file I was trying to install into the open SeaMonkey window and that allowed me to install the downloaded extension.

Thanks! You pointed me in the right direction. In Safe Mode the Open File... dialog started working. I then went through each extension, disabled it, restarted, and tested again each time. It turns out the Mozilla Archive Format extension caused this bug. I will let the developer(s) know tomorrow.

I found the issue reported in the MozDev BugZilla: https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=25256.

>> Lightning/.4.46

You are still having Lightning from an earlier candidate build in your profile. The version # was wrong then. If you are having problems with it install 5.1b1 from the website:

Thanks, that user agent string was from v2.46 Candidate Build 6 on my Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. I'll check it out. I don't really use Lightning that much, but did play around with it a little bit two nights ago. No issues that I could tell.
