Any Seamonkey users here? Do add-ons still work?


Hi all,

I like that Slackware still includes Seamonkey, and still provides updates. However, I'm reluctant to browse without Ghostery and/or an adblocker, and it seems that most add-ons don't work with Seamonkey anymore.

Do any of you use Seamonkey? What add-ons are you finding that work?

Thanks,
-Drew

I do. I use RequestPolicy. Its not really designed as an ad blocker specifically but its pretty effective as one.

Awesome. I'll give that a shot. Any tips for setting it up?

I also plan to use the hosts file to help block ads.

I have Adblock Plus, NoScript, Privacy Badger and Redirect Bypasser. Quite a few websites don't work for me, so I either ignore that site, or if I really need to go there, log on as a different (burner) user and use an open browser.

To install and set up just go to Tools > Add-ons Manager.

Click&Clean no longer works with SeaMonkey.
