Got me on that?

Actually I don't understand it at all, but then I'm a feeble old man who's lucky to accomplish anything on a computer.

I appreciate the link to the copy url etc. extension, but it doesn't do what I want. I'll just do it the "hard way".


What therube quoted means that at line 159 of link_maker.js in the makelink extension code there is a call to a function which doesn't exist in the current version of SeaMonkey. Presumably it has been removed (maybe after having been “deprecated” for some time) by the NSS/NSPR/Gecko developers. So in order to make that extension work with current SeaMonkey versions, someone (not you) will have to find out by what (if anything) that removed function has been replaced, and make the necessary changes in link_maker.js
Best regards,
Tony

This was axed over a year ago. It is recommended to use other methods for storing data:

If this extension wasn't already abandoned ages ago, it's likely that this change killed it.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Yet it does work in FF? (Had been meaning to actually check that out & see.)

One thing that keeps me from Seamonkey beyond curiosity (I have it installed) is the lack of a mouse gestures extension. I'm undecided about whether to go with Seamonkey after Firefox goes all Australis or whether to just weather the storm, but one thing that would make it easier for me would be something like Firegestures for Seamonkey. I know that there was a gestures extension some years ago that worked with Seamonkey (Mozgests I think), but that's discontinued. Oh well, one can hope. :)

Click-to-play per element, as posted at AMO, supports only Firefox. I have modified the install.rdf to produce this XPI but I haven't yet had time to test it. Exercise all due care when testing it on SeaMonkey.

Edit: Apparently not yet needed with SeaMonkey; but if the "new" Fx24+ CTP code makes it into Core it might be needed in the future, who knows?

Tony

Yeah, SM is still click-to-play per element or domain... your choice every time.

Hi, is there any requirement to be able to post request here?

I want this addon to be modded https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... -uploader/
There're 3 authors and I'm confused which one to contact for my request, the last update is also a year ago.

Last, I want to ask about the modded FEBE addon, has anyone tried it yet? Can I use it to migrate to SeaMonkey from Firefox?
I tried to use the Firefox and SeaMonkey sync option but only the bookmarks got imported..

> imgur_uploader-1.0.6-fx.xpi

Add the following to the respective files in the xpi:

install.rdf:
Code: Select all
   <!-- SeaMonkey -->
   <em:targetApplication>
      <Description>
        <em:id>{92650c4d-4b8e-4d2a-b7eb-24ecf4f6b63a}</em:id>
        <em:minVersion>2.0</em:minVersion>
        <em:maxVersion>2.26</em:maxVersion>
      </Description>
   </em:targetApplication>


chrome.manifest:
Code: Select all
overlay   chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul  chrome://imgurfox/content/firefoxOverlay.xul


With the brief look I gave it, looks to work.

Not so quick.

Like I said, brief. But I think it messed up the context menu :cry: ?

Any chance the Media Hint add-on can be modded to work with SM? I previously had this add-on
working myself, by hacking the install.rdf file in the xpi, but it doesn't want to work anymore.

What the heck does that do? "enjoy the fun stuff" isn't exactly a description, and the website is even more vague... I don't think I'd ever install anything that was so incredibly vague about what it's purpose is!

"Media Hint by Media Hint"

All my alarm bells are HINTING something to me.

Essentially, if someone here in the UK (or anywhere else outside the US) wants to watch, say a US late
night chat show such as Letterman or Conan on CBS.com or Teamcoco.com respectively, they can't.
If someone in the US wants to watch a BBC TV show via BBC iPlayer, they can't. They have to go
via a slow VPN or download via torrent. Media Hint is a workaround for all of that.
