About this Add-on
This is for fans of Firefox who are dismayed with current Firefox UI direction. Because it disables and changes some features, people accustomed to SeaMonkey may not enjoy it. If you only want tab closers, please use SeaTab-X-2: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/seatab-x-2/
When you first install Sea Fox, there will be a First Run panel listing Opt Ins and Opt Outs for preference changes. This is not a live "Options" panel, but the settings can be changed at any time using the following listings in about:config:

Addons Sea Fox replaces:
- Sea Tab X: code borrowed with the Sea Tab X developer's permission and blessing.
- Old Default Image Style: Sea Fox uses a different method to restore the old top level images look.
- Combined Stop/Reload CSS hacks or extensions. This is built-in as of version 0.2.2.
Questions, bug reports and support here:
This extension will convert the Seamonkey browser to be similar to Firefox 3.x. It is not meant to be an exact duplicate of any specific version of Firefox, as I don't think any version was ever "perfect" to be worth exactly duplicating. This is for fans of Firefox who are dismayed with current Firefox UI direction. Because it disables and changes some features, people accustomed to SeaMonkey may not enjoy it.
- Removed extra menubar autohide toggles.
- Removed unified-back-forward-buttons due to various problems I don't have time to solve.
