2.7b1 broken (over and over again and again) on Seamonkey-2.22 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't know how someone managed to have L-2.7b1 working on SM-2.22. For me (Gentoo build), it's utterly broken.

The <sarcasm>funny</sarcasm> thing is that, first, the add-on manager happily upgraded to L-2.6.2 which is marked as "Not available" for SM on the add-on page, so breakage #1. Then, having realized the trick, went on Developer Channel and tried L-2.7b1, breakage #2. So 200% failure, already 2 hours spent (user's voluntary free time, like in free hassle) and no other solution than resorting to Downgrade-It-All (TM) :-(

Sorry for being harsh, but getting Lightning to work stable on Seamonkey has become a nightmare.

2.6.1 is broken on SeaMonkey too :-( Please, make more tests before delivering new releases! This is unprofessional policy that makes us wasting a lot of time.

Scroogle SSL search

Fix for SeaMonkey-2.2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

To be able to use this plug-in with SeaMonkey-2.2, the URL node must be extended with two parameters as it follows:

<os:Url type="text/html" method="POST" template="https://ssl.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/nbbwssl.cgi">
<os:Param name="Gw" value="{searchTerms}"/>
<!-- START Fix for SeaMonkey-2.2 -->
<os:Param name="ie" value="utf-8"/>
<os:Param name="oe" value="utf-8"/>
<!-- END Fix for SeaMonkey-2.2 -->
</os:Url>

Either 'GET' or 'POST' method works fine.

Enjoy!

Scroogle SSL search

Please port to SeaMonkey2.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Just rating the (nice) idea for now. Please port it to SeaMonkey2.0,^m'e

[2011-08-11] Edit: I actually was able to use scroogle via a .src (pseudo) plug-in I wrote and pointing 'browser.search.defaulturl' to it, until I updated to SeaMonkey 2.2... and it doesn't work any more :-( AFAIK SM-2.2 now uses the same FF's search engine configuration mechanism, indeed installing/configuration now works. Though searching from the address bar seems broken -- I got the error "Sorry, but right now this server cannot connect to Google.", which is weird 'cause searching from Scroogle's SSL web form works. CGI parameter problem?

What about pc-select mode? C- doesn't work though C-Shift- does, weird. And also C-_ (undo) doesn't work -- can't see any option in the configuration pop-up.
All in all, it's a bit difficult to interact with a mix of key bindings.
IMHO, the best of the two worlds would be to look at an init.el and honour basic options found there, plus scope-based enable/disable option, i.e. "textbox yes|no", "forms yes|no", "menus yes|no", "address-bar ..." etc.
Cheers, ^m'e

Hi there. Very useful tool! Anyway, the bare arrow keys don't work in the address bar, when trying to select a proposed URL completion, nor in the [context] menus, on pages with a text box. C-x-up/down work as expected, but that's a bit uncomfortable. It would be nice to have an option to preserve the standard arrow keys functionality in these contexts. The 'Esc' key suffers from the same problem...
