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.

Sidebar-Panel: 3D Gamers – Latest game related file releases ♰

This blog post in German languageOn Ed Mullenʼs Home Page you find (besides much other interesting stuff) a list of   Sidebar-Panels which are suitable for SeaMonkey. I will write some reports on experience within the next weeks, alternating between German and English Unofficial SeaMonky Blog

First one:

3D Gamers – Latest game related file releases

That can be done quickly. The panel installs without problems, but instead of useful contents it only shows an error message. The panel should show contents of  3dgamers.com/feeds/netscape/3dgamers.html. But it seems 3dgamers.com does no longer exist, if you open it in Browser you will become forwarded to  fileplanet.com.

Contents from the web is no longer available, the Sidebar Panel has become useless.


Hi all, please feel invited to publish your own reports (not only for sidebar panels from Ed Mullen’s page) here in the blog!
