I would like to be able to use Firefox on my blogs, but two features in SeaMonkey always send me back.

Images:
Firefox has two separate links, Image Location to get the image, and Image to copy the image.
SeaMonkey achieves this with one link: Copy image. I can get the link once and use the same click to copy the image for my files and also to insert the image in my blog post.

New tabs:
In Firefox if I move a blog page to be next to an article, that's it, it is moved. So if I want it a second time I have to get it from bookmarks.
In SeaMonkey once I launch the folder, if I move it, I still retain the original tab in place to use again.

These two sets of features should be able to be included in Firefox.

I only referenced these two items. Clearly SM does a better job with these two items.

If I remember correctly, the developers change the copy image feature because too many users were confused.

Interesting on the image. It is so simple in SM.

Can I do anything in about:config to change the copy image feature and the need to keep getting a new tab for my blog default?

You can't change the copy image feature by toggling a preference.

I don't know about the new tabs feature.

I just re-read my first post in this thread. Nowhere did I say the SeaMonkey browser was in general superior to Firefox. I only asked about these two features which make SM much better for me for my blog work.

SeaMonkey Suite has a great history, the current iteration of the original Netscape Suite. Why Mozilla cut it and Thunderbird loose is beyond me. I do not use Thunderbird, I use Outlook. And From SeaMonkey all I use is the browser. But I cannot make Firefox my default as so much stuff that I do is blog related.

Tell me where to contact Mozilla to start a conversation about these two features.

Thanks.

You can file an enhancement bug in bugzilla which will either be wontfixed or rot as unconfirmed.
