Session store API - Archive of obsolete content
using the session store api in seamonkey there are a number of differences between the session store api in firefox and the api in seamonkey 2.0: the class name is @mozilla.org/suite/sessionstore;1 var ss = components.classes["@mozilla.org/suite/sessionstore;1"] .getservice(components.interfaces.nsisessionstore); when restoring a window, closed tabs in that window are not currently restored.
... when closing a tab, seamonkey does not generate sstab events.
...however seamonkey reuses the browser element (up to the undo close tab limit) which means that you can set state on the browser element and it will be restored with the tab.

Cookies Preferences in Mozilla
these preferences apply to most mozilla products (including firefox and seamonkey), however they are application-specific, so not all of them may apply to you.

...ost default value: 50 configures the maximum amount of cookies to be stored per host valid range is from 0-65535, rfc 2109 and 2965 require this to be at least 20 network.cookie.disablecookieformailnews default value: true true = do not accept any cookies from within mailnews or from mail-style uris false = allow cookies in these situations this preference is applicable to all versions of seamonkey.

...localizing current versions of firefox, thunderbird and seamonkey includes working with mercurial.

Localizing with Mozilla Translator
getting started with mozillatranslator mt uses products as groups of localization files with a common root directory (for instance, you may have a product for thunderbird, other for seamonkey, other for dom, other for toolkit, etc.) you update your repository copy using your favorite repository tool, and then update the product(s) in mt.
...this jar structure is now used just by seamonkey 1.1.x.
... mt could be changed for a mt product to have a list of ''root'' directories instead of just one, and maybe someday it will do, but it will probably won't happen before seamonkey 1.1.x dies (and seamonkey 2.0 finally conquers the web, if i may add).
