In a little more detail...

Using SeaMonkey (and Mozilla, and even Netscape) for years, occasionally play with FF. I'm used to modifying themes and extensions files, mostly so they will install when they work perfectly well but are not approved to install by the gods of AMO or devs who just can't add a line to the install.rdf. Also lightly hack the browser to get what I want. Because as great as SM is, sometimes it just needs to be disciplined.

This does what, exactly? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Preserve alignment or something?

When converted, actually works in SeaMonkey Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nothing else does, for my usage cases, not even those for which you can adjust auto-detect settings.Or those which had been labeled to work with SM even when they were version-compatible.

Auto-detect would be nice, seems to work in most other extension/browser combinations, but this is just fine. Not big on the colors (kind of painful for me, even though they are pale) and I would do something to tweak font and layout even though i can respect the overall style choices - they just don't work best for me. Collapsible, and copy works - very nice.

Fantastic, thank you. Hope to see this remain "compatible" with SM.

re: mark as read Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Manual Mark As Read seems to work just fine (or as well as it ever did before using the extension). Mark as one would normally.

Dog Ears

sigh Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Again, yet more people who apparently can't read.

Don't report your suspected bugs here, but directly to the author.

As to the dog ears "standing out more", they aren't intended to be found visually. Jump to the mark.

Nightly Tester Tools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yeh, I can't understand what sort of testers you are if you can't make the extension compatible yourself.

Come on, now. really. What happens when you compile the next build..?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).

Tab Clicking Options

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Folks - if you have compatibility problems, either edit the file or disable compatibility checking. Internet search is your friend.

Or take over development if it is really dead, after checking with the author if necessary. I can't understand everyone whining about free code .

MR Tech Toolkit (local install) is the answer.

You can try installing locally without MR Tech, right click download link and save target. Drag onto a browser window. MR Tech will provide support and an Install Extension option in the File menu.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.1). 

EarlyBlue

Thanks for EarlyBlue Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is one of my favorite themes. Venerable Modern is nice, if you can find it, but it will soon probably be rendered non-functional as SeaMonkey evolves. I just like the blueness.

Also, thumbs up for any developer of SeaMonkey themes. There are so very few.

Installation issues? Yeah, install is sometimes broken. This is what you do:

1) Right click the "add to seamonkey" button, and save the target file where you can find it.

2) Install MR Tech Toolkit (formerly of Local Install fame. See where this is going?)

2.1) (edit) Or the newer Theme Installer extension. That should work well. ;)

3) With MR Tech installed (you can try without installing it first if you like), drag the theme file onto an open browser window. You'll be prompted further to allow installation. You can also use Install Extension from the File menu and browse to the theme file as well.
