I had to do a complete reinstall of Windows 7 and lost Adblock.
Is there a ad blocker that works on 2.49.4?
Thanks,
Chuck

I am using Version 1.13.8 of uBlock Origin with 2.94,
but am not sure where you can get that earlier version
from - maybe github?

You can use a later version of uBlock Origin than that. You can get it here:
https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases
Look for the one that says "Firefox-legacy".

I just downloaded the latest version 1.17.3b1 for installation into Seamonkey 2.49.4 and the browser reported that it could not install after the download because the file was corrupt.

Is anyone else able to install the current version?

See the post and link by Anonimosity above.
Version 1.17.3b1 will not work with Seamonkey.

    Image SeaMonkey uses (as it should be) classic XUL/XPCOM extensions (> uBlock firefox-legacy-1.16.4.5).
    And it doesn't use that WebExtensions crap (> uBlock 1.17.2).

Are we saying that the usual AdBlock Plus and Element Hiding Helper do not work with 2.49? That would be very, very bad.

It's the 4th one down v1.16.4.5 How can I save the file for a offline load?
Chrome-Dome or any other browser that doesn't even have a Menu Bar (which should be standard for all programs) makes it a poor browser! Stop following M$'s lousy O/S.

Using the example in the previous post, the 1st link opens a 'Save as'. The 2nd link opens as a 'install software'. Neither have a 'save target as' in the right click menu (in SeaMonkey).

It was unchecked (hidden) in the "Menu Wizard" add-on menu. :x

Is there a "Ghostery" (tracking blocking) available for SM? I scanned thru 700 of the 700+ add-ons, but I didn't see it.
