I am attempting to find seamonkey compatible add-ons but every time I go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/ and do a search for what I need, I get the whole Firefox list where few compatible add-ons work but all 700+ of them are listed. How do I get a concise list of addons that work with seamonkey -- including older versions that work when newer version have been broken?

And if an add-on is on my disk, how do I load it? The instructions about the extension directory doesn't work.

Searching for NoScript (for example) from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/ my results show only SeaMonkey extensions.

And if an add-on is on my disk, how do I load it? The instructions about the extension directory doesn't work.

Menu path Tools->Add-ons Manager (or Ctrl+Shiift+A) then click on the Gear icon and select "Install add-on from file".

Drag it into a browser window.
or,

Typing "NoScript" for me lists 18 add-ons, only 9 of which are SeaMonkey.
There is no "gear icon" anywhere on my page
Opening the file states the file is corrupt.

So Snap-Links-Plus, which worked in SM-2.49.1 no longer works in SM-2.49.3

Is there any addon that allows us to open multiple links?

Install this extension in your SeaMonkey, then search for extensions.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamon ... seamonkey/

The gear icon is on the Add-ons Manager page just to the left of the search bar when you select the Extensions tab under Get Add-ons.

The AMO site sucks, overall, IMHO.
AMO couldn't give two craps about SeaMonkey, actually, anything that is not "Firefox".
You can never rely on being presented with accurate information on AMO.
Even a search for "noscript" - turns up ZERO - on my end, because (I think its something like) AMO, in its "wizdom" (yes, 'z', for zilch) "see's" that you (I) have NoScript installed, so doesn't even display it when I search for it on their site. Like how utterly ridiculous is that.
The best you can do is see what they may offer & take your chances from there.
