Updated the entry to reflect since v2.10.1 support for Vista has been dropped. Check earlier versions if you need Vista support, and v2.9.4 if for some reason you require XP support.

@freakzoid: the "Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey" may be what you're looking for: https://addons.mozilla.org/sk/seamonkey/addon/classic-firefox-theme-for-seam/ ...

I use both this and the SeaFox extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/sea-fox/) and after some further tweaking, I am pretty satisfied with the results.

I use SeaFox as well, but I just use the Default theme.

Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey doesn't really make much of a difference in my layout, except a few icon changes.

Speaking of icons, use the Classic Toolbar Buttons addon to change some of the default icons. It doesn't change the Bookmark, RSS or Tab Throbber icons though.

Indeed. Please check the forum topic to see if your results match mine...
