SeaMonkey Add-on Compatibility Tracking

Starting with SeaMonkey 2.7, all add-ons that are declared compatible with at least SeaMonkey 2.1 will work out of the box ("compatible-by-default"), i.e. you do not need to install additional add-ons or change preferences to make these work. Add-ons with binary components (like Lightning and Enigmail) and special add-ons (themes, dictionaries etc.) are exceptions to the rule.

Please list any major changes here (latest first, max. three visible entries, max. one entry per day and contributor)

General Notes

  • This Wiki replaces SeaMonkey/2.1/AddonCompat in an attempt to make the information relevant without being tied to a specific SeaMonkey version.
  • Since this is a Wiki page, anyone with an account can modify it. If you have need an add-on being checked, please add it to the Discussion page instead of this one. Thanks!
  • For each add-on, only the basic functionality has been checked.
  • Please don't make the below a table. The goal is to have this as short and easily editable as possible.
  • "AMO" means addons.mozilla.org. "xsidebar site" includes: modified / modifiedmisc / modifiedmailnews
  • Please do not add very seldom-used add-ons, themes, dictionaries etc.
  • Please double-check your findings before adding to any of the below lists.
  • When adding add-ons, please check for versions in this order:
    1. AMO (including experimental ones)
    2. external sources (versions that work without modifications)
    3. AMO versions that only need a compatibility override
    4. other versions that only need a compatibility override
    5. any versions that need SeaMonkey added to install.rdf
  • Some add-ons might be listed as compatible at AMO but not feature compatibility in the install.rdf of the XPI file. For such add-ons, AMO sends a compatibility override signal to SeaMonkey's add-ons back-end. Affected add-ons can only be installed if either an Internet connection exists or the Add-on Compatibility Reporter add-on is installed and enabled. However, add-ons that include neither SeaMonkey nor Toolkit in their install.rdf at all cannot be installed either way (bug 680845) and need to be listed under "Needs Addition to install.rdf".

Add-ons available from AMO, by SeaMonkey release version

Notes:

  1. Please list the highest supported full release. Examples: 2.6a2 → 2.5, 2.8a1 → 2.7.
  2. Please list only names (except experimental versions), since versions may change.
  3. If an add-on listed in this section is compatible with a previous version of SeaMonkey, you can enable it after installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter (ACR) add-on. (Then be sure to check that it actually works!)

2.33 (and later)

A Click on the will lead you to the Mozilla Add-on Compatibility Data Base. A Click on ► will directly lead to conversion of the add-on.

Compatible

Even if an Add-on from AMO can be installed and works, although it has been tagged Not available for SeaMonkey on AMO, it might be advisable to use a Converted version, because Add-On-converter adds some additional changes.

  • Fireshot 0.98.75  ⓘ (Screenshot Creator with PDF-Export, send by e-mail and other useful features) updates fine on SeaMonkey 2.39a1, for new installation it might be necessary to extend SeaMonkey range in install.rdf in webpage_screenshot_in_firefox-0.98.75-sm+tb+fx.xpi
  • Ghostery 5.4.3  ⓘ (Shows information concerning tracking tools (Cookies) on visited page) But: bug 1154608 Websites not loaded when Ghostery-add-on and private window active
  • Go Parent Folder 2.9.1.1-signed  ⓘ (Allows to find parent folder of a bookmarks search hit, so this one is a solution for bug 56418 - add folder column so bookmark search results shows where bookmark is in folder hierarchy and bug 527225 - bookmarks sidebar search just shows the hits, but not the tree-structure and bug 469441 - Add "Open Enclosing Folder" context menu to search results of bookmarks in the Library window (link to view/open containing folder, parent folder button) .
  • IE View 1.5.6 (Lets you load pages in IE with a single right-click, Version shown as "Not available for SeaMonkey 2.33.1", Ambox warning pn.png compatibility controversial)
  • NetVideoHunter 1.17 (Allows to download videos (YouTube ...) with very few clicks)
  • PrefBar 6.5.0 ("The" preferences toolbar, Version shown as "Not available for SeaMonkey 2.33.1")
  • RedirectCleaner 1.0.0 (cleans Redirects from Links)    ⓘ 
  • Remote XUL Manager 1.2.4 (Allows to show pages with depricated Remote XUL). Shown with "Not available for Seamonkey", but will work fine.
  • Screengrab (fix version) 0.98.05c (creates screenshot of browser TAB contents)
  • Send Later (Später Senden) 4.4 (sends e-mails at user defined time) Ambox warning pn.png Seems not to work with SeaMonkey 2.35. Send Later (Später Senden) 4.4.1 heals that problem. -- Rrbd (talk) 04:12, 23 June 2015 (PDT)
