The easiest way is to go here:

https://mycroftproject.com/

I just tested it and plugins install perfect in NM27. Click on the plugin you want and it'll take to a page that says

Install plugin

This page allows you to install the selected plugin.

From your search bar the left green icon when the menu drops down on the very bottom you can add the search engine.

Attention! Private Mode must be disabled to be able to add OpenSearch engines. Check Tools/Preferences/Privacy/History and then the first checkbox "Always use private browsing mode" must be unchecked.

My PC has 2GB RAM, which I used to feel enough for my daily usage as a XP system, and always set page file to 0. But as time goes by, programs begin to eat more and more memory. Now two most resident programs: Serpent browser and Thunderbird mail client take about 300~400M each, even peak to 600~700M, left me only about 30% physical memory for other programs.  I don't want to use virtual memory for I feel it slows much when switching and restoring from standby, and no same type old DDR memory is available in market, plus the slot is already full. So I think of one Mozilla program for both web and mail -- Seamonkey, and think it may use less memory for saving the duplicate coding parts. But Seamonkey has ceased XP support. Is there any analogue of it on UXP platform?

Thanks! I missed it in your many works. I'll try it.

Report back:

Since IceApe and Serpent are both UXP based, I use my Serpent profile for IceApe. The first thing I encountered is "incompatible" add-ons:1.PNG.373f90dfbcbdadf1b2e30464e7ba44ba.PNG

But in fact some seems function, like autoproxy, downthemall, noscript; but some does not, like "Live http headers", "Tab tree", etc. How could I tell whether an add-on could function, or make it function through some minor modification under IceApe?

Hello all,

Today I got back on my ThinkPad to visit Twitter.  When they changed to their new interface, I had been getting pop-ups telling me that my Web browser wasn't supported, and while annoying, I could easily dismiss them.  Attached to this message is what I was greeted with today: a hard block.

Has anyone else gotten this?  I was already sending the Firefox 52.9 user agent string; I tried others, and got the same result.

 

Thanks,
        Thomas

if those extensions have proper seamonkey support, then they will work on iceape

Github's Network graph is showing blank in Serpent. Is this a known issue? Any remedies?

did you try installing "GitHub Web Components Polyfill" extension?
