I have no idea how much money goes to SeaMonkey from donations but considering the project's popularity I suppose the developers can be happy if they can have one good pizza each month for the money they get :mrgreen: But I share your sentiment - having two full-time paid SM developers would be fantastic, indeed!

The PayPal donation page still doesn't work for those of us not in the UK. The form REQUIRES entry of a British county, which seems kind of superfluous to begin with but is irrelevant for US and other donors (yes, I did change the country to US first). It appears to also require creating a PP account, which I won't do. I understand wire transfers are also accepted but that's an expensive option in the US.

You don't want my money? :-(

is there any feature-donation poll page ?

you know, you name a feature you'd like to have in seamonkey and propose a donation (to pay) then other people can vote (and pay too)
Zimbra community did that in 2006.
it was a powerful way to improve the software and bring new features.

best regards

What features did you have in mind? I had a think and couldn't think of anything that cannot already be done by using existing extensions and Complete Themes.

seamonkey already have a "block image from domain" feature in its contecxtual menu.
i would like "a block everything from this domain" or even better "block everything for domain with that extension".

Starting with 2.39 I am sure domain based blocking is no longer possible. Mozilla (Firefox) switched the permissions model to origins and these are not domain based.

What Seamonkey had and has is to block images, cookies and popups from a website.

I am currently cleaning up the popup blocker menu in Bug 1055954.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1055954

It would be rather trivial to add another menu option to block images, cookies and popups from the current website but not sure if this is a good idea as it might clutter up the menu and can only be done to block because of different other permission enable options eg. for cookies. Might be implemented as a new feature in Data Manager.

Best to file a bug and clearly state what you want / prefer.

at least, seamonkey should upgrade the block image from website feature by block content from this website where the user would decide (a simple field to enter extension file with separate comma) and seamonkey should use this field content to filter.

Not easily possible. Images are loaded by core code which is owned my Mozilla. Good luck trying to implement it there... Sorry. Could maybe done in an extension.

I'm curious if Seamonkey Development is registered as a Non-Profit organization. If it is, then my donations would be tax free. That is, I would get a tax consideration for the donation. But I would probably need a paper or printable letterhead recipe indicating the Non-Profits tax ID.

Since the SeaMonkey Association is technically registered in Europe, you'd probably have to live in (or pay taxes to) a country of the European Union.

Might make sense to supply a series of P.O.Boxes/addresses for use globally.
US and most foreign banks can provide money orders/bank drafts in any form of tender.
I'd much rather mail something then do a wire transfer, credit /debit card or have something connected through a third party.
I have yet to understand the reticence to use only digital pay policies, it cuts out possible funding.
