Add-On “PrefBar” crashes SeaMonkey 2.52 ⚠️️

One of my favorite add-ons crashes latest SeaMonkey Trunk-Builds like

UNofficial (by FRG) en-US SeaMonkey 2.52a1 (NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0 Build 20170513191754 (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit

When I launch SeaMonkey it crashes immediately if PrefBar add-on is active.

The problem is not Win64; x64 related.

Bugs:

Can someone confirm the problem❔

Any theory concerning the roots of the problem❔

New add-on: “Sidebar Add Custom Tab”

Blogpost Version 2017-02-04 15:41 UTC
This blog post in German languageAnother great tool has been added to AMO Isaac Schemm: “Sidebar Add Custom Tab“. This add-on allows to add new Sidebar Panels for showing Web Pages contents easily with few clicks.

What for?

In few moments the kitchen clock will remind me to close the toilet window.

In few moments the kitchen clock will remind me to close the toilet window.

Most web pages are not very likely for being shown in the sidebar – available width of the sidebar is too small. But some others can be really useful there. Examples:

  • You need a dictionary German Romanian for writing Email? It would be great to have a dictionary-webpage for these languages in the sidebar while you are composing an email.
  • You would like to see whether there is something new in Heise News? It would be great to have …
  • and so on

If you want to show a Web page in the sidebar until now we were reliant to Sidebar Panel repositories with “Add Panel to Sidebar”- scripts, or we had to do some sophisicated proceeding to add a sidebar panel.

Using the new add-on that can be done with few mouse clicks.

Problems

(only few trivial ones)

  • WINDOWS Focus-Loss in the moment when a new Panel becomes added.
  • Some pages (for example my WORDPRESS Reader) do not work, but that probably is a general (Sidebar-) Problem and has nothing to do with the add-on.

Misc

Did we ever have Sidebar-TABs?  I prefer to call them Panels.

Web Pages suitable for Sidebar TABs

SeaMonkey project blog
This unofficial SeaMonkey Blog
German unofficial SeaMonkey Blog
Tagesschau.de
Youtube: not optimum, but if you want to see/listen some music while you are working, it’s fine.
An egg timer like online-stopwatch.com, wich announces end of countdown with a ring tone  (may be there are better ones needing less width?)
Probably several others …

If you know additional suitable web pages or if you know additional information concerning useful sidebar contents, please leave a comment!

Websites not suitable …

Google-Calendar, Facebook,


Other useful sidebar contents:

Additional Sidebar information: I only know Ed Mullens page. Long ago there was a lot of (Netscape-) Sidebars information on DMOZ, nearby all has vanished.

If you know other useful web pages concerning SeaMonkey sidebar please leave a comment.

Emails get lost when time shift sending with Send Later add-on

upsetrobotThis blog post in German languageWith my Server-Installation of unofficial (by FRG) en-US SeaMonkey 2.50a1 (NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0 Build 20161211141438 (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit I observe some problems with Send-Later-Addon. First my suspect was that there only is a problem that time shift sent emails will not become copied into Sent Folder; works fine if I use [Send Now] for sending immediately. But the problem seems to be more serious, today all my time shift test emails did not reach sender, they are lost. Currently I can’t tell whether the problem only affects time shift sending or whether there is a deeper problem in the send process.

I did my tests only with a POP3 email account.

As long as there is no real knowledge concerning the circumstances I recommend not to use those latest Trunk builds for sending (important) Emails.
