There seems to be a mistake. I have generated… well, not *I* per se, but the automation (*lol… yeah.. *right*) or semi-automation seemed to have sent some of the tarballs/binaries elsewhere (or ignored them…). This will be fixed.
Seriously.. when will my incompetence end?
It happens. 🙁
Well, nobody is charging us for storing thing in their space, do they? 🙂
Seriously, these posts smell to a new release being really close. Thanks a lot for your work, ewong!
Step by step 😉
Any chance we can also see a source for the build 1 in here?
Thanks a lot for all of your hard work!
“when will my incompetence end?”
maybe never 🙂
Thanks a lot man for seamonkey, my favourite browser. Love from India.
hopefully an official sm 2.49.5 release would be available towards the end of july 2019 🙂
KUDOS to you and the SeaMonkey council to keep our beloved browser going. 😀
Looking forward to the next official release. 🙂
I would just like to place on record my very sincere gratitude to “:ewong” (I wish I knew his/her full name) and his/her colleagues for their unceasing commitment to Seamonkey despite the manifold difficulties that have clearly beset the project of late. Seamonkey (and before that, the Mozilla suite, and before that, Netscape Communicator) have been my web browser / e-mail client of choice for longer than I care to remember, and I continue to install Seamonkey on, and recommend, every system that I build or even just fix for others. Life without Seamonkey would be unimaginable, so to “:ewong” and every one else concerned, a very sincere “thank you” indeed.
“Seamonkey — there IS no alternative”.
I’ll 2nd what Philip Taylor said.. I, and I feel like Many of my clients also, since we all use SeaMonkey as the latest in the long line of advances since the world’s first browser, .. Well, we all appreciate the fact that you all are here and keeping our favorite software alive.! There really isn’t anything that could replace it.
Thank you deeply to :ewong and everyone else who is helping to keep this marvel relevant & such a joy to use.!!!
KUDOS to you ewong.
KEEP UP THE HARD WORK.
And also KUDOS to ALL at the SeaMonkey council. 🙂
THANK YOU 😀
I sure hope you guys get an updated version out soon. It’s getting hard to use SeaMonkey due to websites blocking it due to security issues. I love Seamonkey but find that I have to use other browsers to access some websites. Please get the update out.
> It’s getting hard to use SeaMonkey due to websites blocking it due to security issues.
In general Websites do not block it due to security issues. They do block it because of bad code, bad useragent sniffing or just not wanting to support other browsers than Chrome. 2.49.5 won’t probably work on them. You can try the unofficial 2.53 http://www.wg9s.com/comm-253/ which has newer features backported.
I know certain sites are having “supposed” issues with SeaMonkey. I’ve found that it’s not that SeaMonkey isn’t capable, it’s their code not realizing it should be fine. I’ve been using a solution that has worked great so far.
You do have to add an entry in the config. Accessed by typing in about:config at a blank tab as the address & enter. Once you’re at the config page, you can right-click on an item and select New / String
The name of the string depends upon what site you’re wanting to give new info to. My following example would be for Amazon;
Then put this in the Value blank that comes up next
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/70.0
and hit enter to have it saved. Then, whatever site, will be given this user agent string when you visit it.. Just change what comes after override. to whatever site you need to get into. Chase.com was my 1st use of it and now it works like there’s never been any problem at all.
Just be very careful not to change other settings in the config, it could make your SeaMonkey completely unusable .. But, if you’re careful about adding new strings to make sites happy, it should be fine. Hope this helps. There are very few sites that I’d actually have to use another browser to function now. And, most of those want flash or something I’m not going to let my system use anyway.
Websites blocking seamonkey? Try a fake user agent string. Works for me with all bad WWW servers (as for now).
An example, from my prefs.js (set with about:config), is as follows:
user_pref(“general.useragent.override.mc04.manuscriptcentral.com”, “Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.4”);
General “firefox compatibilibity advertisement” has been disabled because of google search engine not working correctly.
