AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey: New Version 0.9.17rc1 with enhancements tested successfully

compat1After repair version 0.9.16 Isaac Schemm now created a new  version 0.9.17 with some enhancements. RC is available for testing on github, release will be available on AMO, soon,

I did several tests with unzipped installer of official en-US SeaMonkey 2.53a1 (NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 Build 20170706013410 (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit and checked various functions, which were broken before. For these tests I used some Add-Ons from compatibility list. If you want to do tests directly from AMO, you will have to select an Other Application like Firefox; from the AMO SeaMonkey Area search will only show add-ons which are compatible with SeaMonkey. The FF-AMO-Area already show the new AMO design.

I did my tests from AMO FF Area.

  • 👍 Suppress”FF-Only” button, tested with BlockSite from Search Results list.
    • ✅ [+ Add To FF] or similar button  will be suppressed in search result list (which shows old AMO design) an replaced by “Convert this add-on here” – links.
    • ✅ On add-on download page [+ Add To FF] button is replaced by Convert Add-on link.
    • ✅ Conversion link in added explication text works fine
  • 👍 Useful Text for add-ons built with WebExtensions, which can’t be used with SeaMonkey and which can’t be converted with Add-On-Converter — tested with LEO Dictionaries 3.0 (and YouTube a MP3 1.0.6)
    • ✅ Adds explication to AMO web page for add-on
      • ✅ check previous versions – link works fine

        Convert Previous Version

        • ✅ Conversion link on previous versions page (replaces [+ Add to Firefox]) works fine
  • 👍 Find SeaMonkey Version of add-on — Tested with Lightning 5.4
    • SeaMonkey version of this add-on exists!– link is available and works fine, finds SM version

 

Did I forget something? All functions I tested worked fine

@Isaac: Thank you for great work.

SeaMonkey Project – calling for volunteers

Blogpost in englischer SpracheThe SeaMonkey project is entirely driven by volunteers, and we will need some  more of them, as FRG (Frank-Rainer Grahl)  told on mozillazine.

With some HTML and XHTML knowledge (and some endurance, of course)  for example you can do substantial contribution to SeaMonkey Help. Also required: Translation to other languages than English for Help-chapters, Add-Ons, Wiki-pages

Don’t be shy, leave a comment how we can reach you and where you see your skills for contribution.

AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey — Add-On information updated on AMO

This blog post in German languageSome of you might have observed that the add-on-page on AMO showed a message “not available for SeaMonkey 2.51” for a while. Actually the add-on installs and works fine, so I updated information, the add-on works fine also for latest Trunk version SeaMonkey 2.51a1.

If you observe a problem please use the support link on the add-on page.
