Seamonkey Mail Color offset

With version 2.25 of Seamonkey, I did not like how email looked when I brought it up. The text with the light gray background turned white when it was selected and it's hard to read. It only happens on the skip lines with the light gray background. The white background lines were fine. The following code keeps the background blue when it is not in focus.

Create the file .mozilla/seamonkey/XXXXXX/chrome/userChrome.css where XXXXXX is your profile directory.

Put the following in the file:

/*border around selected tree rows in all trees*/
treechildren::-moz-tree-row(selected) {
	border: 1px solid black !important;
	background-color: #0066FF !important;


Seamonkey Download Dialog

It has happened a couple times where I lost the ability to see the download dialog. I recreated my profile and that fixed the problem. The easier was seems to be remove the downloads.rdf file in the profile directory that is causing the problem. For example,

cd ~/.mozilla/Default/a737728.slt
rm downloads.rdf

I've only see this a couple times.

Googlebar for Seamonkey 2.0

Googlebar for Seamonkey 2.0 has been updated and works great. You can find googlebar on the Mozilla plugin site

Files set to read only when Opened

There was a change put in 2008 that would cause files opened through email or from a web page to have the read-only permissions set. I understand the logic, but sometime you just need to move the data around before printing. Adding the following new key in about:config will create the file with write access. Note: files are created in the /tmp directory and may not be retained, so if you want a copy be sure to use the Save As option of the app you are viewing it with.

In browser URL Enter: about:config
Add new boolean key:  browser.helperApps.deleteTempFileOnExit to false
