You mean, getting the icons next to your bookmarks? Applying the other setting already takes care of that.

Eventually the plan is that SeaMonkey 1.5 will be a toolkit application so we have some ways to go (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 .... 1.5).

I don't think there will be a 1.2, 1.3, or 1.4. I interpret 1.5 as "half way to 2.0" rather than the 5th version upgrade.

My wishlist for Seamonkey is to add a fully working Calendar/Contact Manager and to add an update installer for all new versions of Seamonkey, rather than replacing the whole application each and every time I update!

For some ill-conceived notion, I have many, many email accounts. None-the-less, I have recently needed to install SeaMonkey (mostly due to Microsoft declaring my legal software non-legal - another story!).

Can any one direct me to the secret chamber where I might find the procedure to enter many email accounts into SeaMonkey's email program at the same time? If not, I shall begin the arduous process of entering email accounts one-by-one-by-one.....

Anyway, it would be great if a "table" would open and I could enter all my email acounts line by line instead of following the email account process then restarting the process, etc. It would be expeditious to add the emails into the "table" then press an "UPDATE" button and all my email addresses would appear in the Mail and Newgroup Accounts.

Sine I'm new to the Mozilla family, I have not sorted out how to write the code to perform this task. I'm slowly sorting through the information.

Thanks

I just got the Calendar extension working with my Seamonkey build again. Took a bit of cutting/pasting thru CVS to get things right.

Contact Manager - what's wrong with the address book? (Not that I actually use it for much of anything...)

Can you post your diffs somewhere? Thanks.

I would like session restore in seamonkey even though I have not had to use this feature it's a handy little thing to have just in case and a good extensions & Update manager would be good.

The "Tab Session Management Module" of <a href="http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/xul/tabextensions/index.html.en">Tabbed Browser Extension</a> (Management module is an optional install when installing this extension) provides this functionality.

Sorry for disappearing. After I got things working I kinda stopped browsing this forum for a while. My current set of patches in Bug 371830 builds the trunk with suiterunner. I'll have to regenerate the build for regular seamonkey and see what happens.

My current build works with the trunk for both Seamonkey and Suiterunner (well - I built it twice. I don't expect the same Calendar binary to work in both. Should it? I guess I can try it later.) The patchset in bugzilla is incomplete though; I had left the *.rdf files commented out before because they weren't needed to run with Suiterunner. I had to add them back in to get Calendar to load in Seamonkey.

The calendar.xpi that I built from the trunk crashes Seamonkey 1.1, so I'm in the midst of rebuilding against SM1.1 source with debug enabled to see what went wrong. Hopefully it won't be a huge version dependency issue.

Turns out the crash was because the SM1.1 build was made with gcc3 and I was building with gcc4. That brings in two different versions of libstdc++.so. Annoying. I had to go hunt down an rpm of gcc3 and set up a new build environment, but it's chugging along now.

The patches have grown, no big surprise. But it's working.

Nope. I'm afraid that wasn't it. It seems there's more mismatched in my environment than I can chase down right now. The official builds are done on SuSE 9.0, which was discontinued a while ago. I don't have time to try to hunt down a copy, and it seems that just picking up the compiler isn't enough to match that build.

So it looks like I'm only going to be providing source patches, no usable binaries.

Perhaps you could ask in #seamonkey if somebody (e.g. hendikins) doing regular linux builds would test your patches for you.
