SeaMonkey 2.53.2 is broken

May 09, 2020 — BarryK

SeaMonkey 2.53.2 has been released. I compiled it in EasyOS, which is of course based on Debian Buster 10.3 DEB packages. It compiles, but I get a mostly-empty window:


I tried configuring with mostly-builtin libraries, such as icu, cairo, but still get same as above.

OK, found the fix, have to delete the /root/.mozilla profile:

That is bad news. It means when update and Easy installation to a new version, will lose everything -- email setup, bookmarks, history -- everything.

I tried that fix, and it works. But, if we could find whatever it is specifically inside /root/.mozilla that is causing the problem, and only delete that...
