The latest SeaMonkey, 2.57a1, now works again, mostly. It still has issues, but it's functional!
One thing I notice is that the Modern theme is broken, obviously because the properties -moz-border-top-colors, -moz-border-right-colors, -moz-border-bottom-colors and -moz-border-left-colors no longer work. All the UI elements have thick black borders now.

In https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/59 I read that these properties have been disabled, which would account for the problem. Now someone needs to redesign this theme; so far so good.
However, the same page also says that these properties "have been limited to usage in chrome code only".
That's where I get confused. Has something gone wrong? I mean, a theme is chrome code, right? Doesn't that mean it should still work?
Groetjes, Pim

Known problem but I think there is no bug yet. All the breakage is a bit overwhelming. The moz-border colors are gone in 2.57 / 60 and need to be replaced with border derivates. Unfortunately not 1:1 in all cases.

Thanks. That's what I gather, yes, but what got me confused is that the linked page specifically says

The proprietary -moz-border-top-colors, -moz-border-right-colors, -moz-border-bottom-colors, and -moz-border-left-colors properties have been limited to usage in chrome code only

which sounds like it should keep working for themes. That's why I asked.
Groetjes, Pim

I believe the syntax is now border-inline-right, etc.

Unfortunately not that easy or it would have been fixed by now.

Tracked in bug 1444740 which has a wip fix.

If someone who knows css wants to take it over be my guest. The assigned person seems to have given up.

sad but does that more or less mean that there will never be anymore Seamonkey releases beyond 2.49.x ?

It just means that the css needs to be changed.
