I have SM 2.46. In he past I always was able to upgrade SM when I got a notice. Lately I am getting a message that something is preventing SM from updating securely. Check if you have the latest SM from http://www.seamonkey.org. Nothing has changed in Avast or Malwarebytes.

What is the problem? Does SM 2.49 do anything to corrupt my old profile (mail, bookmarks, passwords, etc). I have seen messages that it does.

Bob.

https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/seamonkey2.49.1/
https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/seamonkey2.48/

Automatic upgrades from previous versions are, for most configurations, disabled for this release. Please download the full installer from the downloads section and install SeaMonkey 2.49.1 manually over the previous version.

In my case it was Avast Anti Virus preventing the update. Suspending Avast for the period of time to run the update would make it update automatically. There is a way to allow the anti virus software to allow the update but I couldn't figure it out so I just turn off the anti virus briefly.
