Hello, I'm having problems when adding French and English UK language packs. When I enable either one of them in preferences, on reloading Seamonkey the interface is empty, no buttons, menus, messages etc. I have been able to return to the normal state of Seamonkey by changing the name of the language packs in my profile > extensions so that they don't load when I reload Seamonkey. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way around it so that I can use the interface of my choice? Or is this a bug?
For info, I am using Seamonkey 25.3.5 with Arch linux and also PCLOS.
Thanking you in advance for your help,

Where are you getting those language packs/dictionaries from?

Dictionaries in WebExtension formats do not work, even though they appear to install correctly. Support for them will be added at a later date. Please install the latest classic version from the dictionary history.

Hello Frank,
Thanks for your reply.
They aren't dictionaries but language packs.
My PC running PCLOS is still running Seamonkey 25.3.2 and the French language pack version 25.3.2 was downloaded from the Seamonkey website in October. I've just tried installing this French language pack again and now it works. So that's solved. Hurray!

On the other hand Seamonkey on my Arch machine is at version 25.3.5 and the language pack English UK at version 25.3.5.1 won't install. I've tried to install the downloaded pack via "Add-ons manager>Install add-on from file ..." but get the message that it's not compatible with Seamonkey 25.3.5.
Any ideas?

You need the install the right language pack for the SM version you have.

In your case, you need the pack/s on this 2.53.5 page - https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/2.53.5
