Hil Philb,

I updated using the right click option.
Portable 5 still activates Seamonkey 2.6.1.

Subject description: Partial Success - Rebooted
 

I have partial success.

After doing the Portable 5 update I rebooted.
Seamonkey 2.39 did download into Portable 5.

However, now when either the desktop icon or Portable icon is activated the Portable update box activates and keeps updating Portable 5 unless I say, 'run now'.

How to get rid of the update panel?
I'm writing this on another machine.
I'll go see if I can send a screenshot.

Thank you.

edit: No go. Seamonkey crashes when I attempt to bypass the update box.

Subject description: Work-a-round for Seamonkey 2.6.1 to 2.39
 

OK, I've found a work-a-round.

I go to /usr/lib/seamonkey/seamonkey and activate the work gear icon.
This gives me Seamonkey 2.39 without the Portable 5 update box and with my bookmarks transfered.
I've put that icon on the desktop then set a Seamonkey icon logo on it.

I'll go play with the 2.39 and give an update to this post in a few minutes.

I know I've mentioned /usr/lib/seamonkey/seamonkey to you before.

Bkmrks were picked up because your settings folder remained intact.

Yes, you have. And, I regularly use /usr/lib for reference.
However, as I've explained in this thread several times.
Prior to using Shinobar's Portable 5, I attempted the standard download of Seamonkey 2.39 tar file. The file was extracted and placed in /usr/lib, but, when activating /usr/lib/seamonkey/seamonkey Seamonkey 2.6.1 still activated. That is the issue that brought me to Portable 5 as a possible fix.
It was only after Portable 5 update that /usr/lib/seamonkey/seamonkey activated SM 2.39.

With SM portable in the mix, you don't learn, you rely.

As soon as support disappears, most novice users are lost.

I try to uncover for peeps the behind the scenes principles that allow them to take the reigns for themselves.

Semme,

Yes, and, you do offer so much good help, thank you, Semme.

Taking the reigns is the way I prefer to work also.

Here is an update:

Seamonkey 2.39 is installed in the Toshiba Satellite 1415-S115 with maximum RAM of 512Mb.
The browser is running miserably slow, I'm guessing because of the low RAM. 512Mg of RAM is as much as the machine will take.
Too bad, because Seamonkey 2.6.1 which came in the original .iso of Wary 5.5 was running moderately fast.
I'd keep the Seamonkey 2.6.1, but, the ads completely clutter the screen. The user has eyesight issues and is tech adverse. If he sees an ad that says, 'click here and buy now', he's likely to believe it and follow through on the ad because, 'the computer told me too'.

I'll give the machine to him tomorrow, but, I'll recommend he get a newer, faster machine if he is to use contemporary connections. He is currently on a Dial Up system.

666philb and Semme
Thank you so much for the help.

PostPosted: Wed 14 Sep 2016, 16:39    Post subject: Portable Seamonkey announces an error on any update attempt  

I am running portable Seamonkey on a 32bit Laptop. No matter which 32bit PUP I boot, I merely drag the portable executable to the desktop and run.

One problem is that I cannot update it. Whenever I attempt to using SeaMonkey's utility, I get the following message.

Is there a way to re-establish Seamonkey's ability for update-in-place for the portable version?

Update is solved by
  1. Shutting down all Seamonkey browser sessions
  2. right-click on the Seamonkey icon on the desktop
  3. Select Update ...
  4. Hit the Enter or OK on the Window that pops up
  5. When for coffee
  6. Click completion window to run
On another note, it appears someting is wrong with @Shinobar's site with the latest version of the portable Seamonkey utility. I cannot download it. I get a 0b file. And attempting to use wget results in unsuccessful loop attempts.

Are you having the same problem?

Is it possible seamonkey works with latest youtube?
or is there a way someone explain how to use Shinobar-sans portable files to setup the latest Firefox or Opera VPN (Virtual Private Network looks good as I along with many not intereseted in Google products even Chrome as its used to violate our privacy and rights)
