Build3 has been “candidatized”…

Hi everyone!

Build 3 has been pushed to the regular candidates path.ย  I’ve coined a ‘new’ term “candidatized”, meaning it’s been sent to the candidates path on

That said, there’s a chance it’ll be dubbed 2.49.5 instead of rc3.

Also, that said, there’s a few changes from the previous automation-based releases/candidates; that being, a lot of the files that are supposed to be there, aren’t and files that shouldn’t be there, are.ย  The automation is still not working.ย  The automation that’s in place is manual…ย  ๐Ÿ˜›

Yes, we’re missing a README file.ย ย  No fear…ย  that’s coming next.ย  So if you refresh that main build3/ page, it should appear within 24 hrs provided it’s there.ย  [motif being “it’s there when it’s there.”]

Again, I cannot stress this out.ย  Both IanN and frg were the mainstays of this release.ย  So all round applause to them!

    Thanks again for the enduring support of Seamonkey, I really hope we will be one time, some time on a refurbished browser.

    I know that it is off-topic, but I read in the Status Meetings that on the newest builds the Modern Theme is RIP.

    Accidently I started using the Debian Iceweasel port for Windows (a privacy-orientated, saner build of Firefox 68) and was looking to make it more homely (ie more like Seamonkey) where I stumbled on the “Seamonkey Modern LW” which is quite a matching theme.

    Perhaps you are looking in to this theme as a base for a rebuild for Seamonkey 2.57+?

    PS: the tabs were moved down with this userChrome.js:
    /* TABS: on bottom */
    #navigator-toolbox toolbar:not(#nav-bar):not(#toolbar-menubar) {-moz-box-ordinal-group:10}
    #TabsToolbar {-moz-box-ordinal-group:1000!important}

    #TabsToolbar {
    position: absolute !important;
    bottom: 0 !important;
    width: 100vw !important;

    #tabbrowser-tabs {
    width: 100vw !important;
    #main-window:not([chromehidden*=”toolbar”]) #navigator-toolbox {padding-bottom: var(–tab-min-height) !important;}

    /* TABS: height */
    :root {
    –tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important;
    –tab-min-height: 28px !important; /* adjust to suit your needs */
    :root #tabbrowser-tabs {
    –tab-min-height: 24px !important; /* needs to be the same as above under :root */
    –tab-min-width: 80px !important;

    Thank you very much, for all the effort and work on SeaMonkey 2.49.5 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cheers!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Full theme support is only dead after 2.57 (ESR60) There are currently no plans and no manpower to tackle post 60 releases. We will first do 2.53 and 2.57 (including at least security backports) and then see what the future brings.
    And no that does not mean that SeaMonkey is dead! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks a lot for your great work!
    I managed to pull the build3 source and build a perfectly working version for both Debian/Devuan and Arch out of it. Looking smoother than 2.49.4

  8. LuvKomputrs says:

    KUDOS to ALL the SeaMonkey council! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thank You All for keeping our beloved browser alive! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. EP says:

    AHHH a build numero trois for 2.49.5.

    getting REAL close to a final release! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. devil says:

    not dead but already dying

    • LuvKomputrs says:

      Respectfully disagree with you on that.
      The SeaMonkey browser is still going strong!
      And THANK YOU to the SeaMonkey council to keep our beloved browser still going strong! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • EP says:

      well haters gonna hate but Seamonkey is FAR from dying
      it’s STILL alive and well!

  11. Thanks a lot!
    Waiting also for the final release!

  12. George says:

    Thank you IanN, frg, and all those who contribute code to SeaMonkey to keep it going. Hope 2.49.5 gets released soon. You’ve all had a lot of Herculean tasks to get this out over the past year. Appreciate your efforts! :)!

    I have been a Seamonkey user for many years now, I just love it, especially for the e-mail client. But I use FreeBSD as OS and unfortunately, the seamonkey port has been removed now due to security issues. So if I want to keep on using seamonkey, it looks I cannot update my system anymore. Installing Thunderbird would also result in removing the seamonkey package from my system, so I feel really screwed right now, as seamonkey is a main component of my desktop. Also, I have a lot of passwords stored for many websites, which I might not even know about. Is there a function in seamonkey to export passwords and import them into firefox?

    I just would like to ask you please, to keep seamonkey alive and to care more about security issues rather than themes, so that it will be included in the FreeBSD ports again.

    Bravo ! Nous attendons avec impatience la version finale 49.5 ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Ronnie says:

    This is great news… long live Seamonkey! I am regularly encouraging users of the lxle distribution to support seamonkey however they can and frequently showcase the benefits of Seamonkey’s low resource usage on aging computers. It’s a great fit for the distro and would like to see it continue for years to come.

    Thanks again for all the hard work… you guys are awesome.

  16. Al says:

    So many Thank You’s please keep Seamonkey alive. It is the best browser I know and i love to use it since the first days. And also me have to agree it is awesome, how much hard work you done.

  17. krzysztof says:

    2.49.5 is already in, but nearly empty (since August 30). More release candidates needed?
    Anyway, thank you for keeping Seamonkey alive. IMHO SM is the last sane browser in the heavy-weight category.

    > More release candidates needed?

    is the final. Just copying it takes a little bit longer.
