"Added server favorites menu"
Is this what you needed? ;)

It might be, but I have no idea how it works (always greyed-out)... :)

PortableApps.com AppCompactor v3.5 Updated

billon on 14 May 2020
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 May 2020
  • Suggested by Checker

PortableApps.com AppCompactor allows you to compress whole directories including applications, file libraries and zip files. The program is a powerful compression tool that unites 7-Zip and UPX inside a user-friendly wizard. For applications, this saves disk space and increases performance when running from a slow media (like flash drives). For archives, this will recompress DLL, EXE, ZIP, JAR, IRC, PYD and BIN files to their maximum compression settings, as well as an option to decompress an app's binary files that were previously compressed with UPX.

All files are tested using UPX's test feature after compressing. Files smaller than 4K are automatically skipped as compressing will not save space on the drive. The standard Microsoft Visual C runtimes are skipped to prevent antivirus false-positives. Advanced configuration can be done with apps in PortableApps.com Format.

Note: As UPX will alter the EXEs and DLLs (reversible using the Decompress option in the AppCompactor) and some apps may have issues with Zip or Jar files compressed further, users should backup software and test it after processing.

tommyD: Disadvantages are that it breaks some programs, and it may be slightly more CPU-intensive to decompress libraries and executables on the fly.

  • Creating a new conversation tab has been made easier.
    - Clicking the '+' button in a conversation window shows a list of conversations that can be started with a single click.
    - The list is sorted with a frecency algorithm, taking into account how often and how recently you've talked to each contact.
    - This list also automatically includes the channels advertised by the IRC servers you are connected to.
  • New tooltips that better fit the style of Instantbird.
  • Improved Multi-user chats user interface:
    - Participants now have context menus that allow you to open private conversations or add them as buddies.
    - Highlighted nicks in chat rooms now have tooltips and context menus.
  • Auto-joined chat rooms that have been put on hold will stay on hold after a restart.
  • A list of alternate nicks for IRC can be configured, in case your preferred nick is taken when you connect.
  • about: pages (e.g. about:config) can now easily be opened with the /about command (e.g. /about config).

  • Google Talk and Hangouts Android users are now shown as mobile.

Love the simplicity, ease of use, familiar look and feel, but the program doesn't reconnect when there's a connection problem (I have a bad one) so I'm constantly restarting the program.

Update fixed reconnection problems. Very happy with this.

@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.

freakazoid on 2017-01-08 08:44

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...

Program is dead, addons' link is dead, forum is dead, wiki is dead, even screenshots' links are dead.

Their site is having some issues. Though I'm only having issues with the addon and wiki site so maybe fixes are underway.
