Unable to access the yahoo.com website as Seamonkey is not recognized with the proper extensions. It does have an extension for Firefox but not Seamonkey.
I seem to not be able to add the Firefox extension to Seamonkey...
Any solution??

Moving to SeaMonkey Support.

You don't need an extension to access Yahoo using SeaMonkey. At a guess, Yahoo is telling you that your browser is too old and obsolete. That's poor programming on their part. See this article to spoof your User Agent String so Yahoo will think you are visiting using Firefox. viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3028985

Yes you do not need any Yahoo extensions in Firefox or SeaMonkey in order to use any yahoo.com pages.
