Starts with an upgrade ad every other start, does anyone know how to disable? Must click skip to go to program.

I have used this PIM for many years however since Yahoo inflicted their new security measures I have been unable to download messages from my Yahoo account, I have followed all the instructions provided by Yahoo to add Essential PIM to the list of message services but to no avail.

Even Anton at Astonsoft could not help as his recommendations were exactly the same as those from Yahoo.

EssentialPIM free since version 9 can not add e-mail account Google (Gmail) or Microsoft (Outlook) - fails 2-step verification (OAuth).
Version 8 can do it...
Tested repeated on different computers and operating systems.

@billon: Good catch. The developer appears to have followed up with a 7zip version.

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...

UPDATED TO 12.18!!!11
no changelog yet on off. page

Specular on 2016-02-16 07:31

@billon mmm, it's odd. Just had a pop-up informing of a new version to download which is apparently v12.18 yet no official changelog has been released.

However did find an old My Opera stalwart who posted some of the changes over on the Vivaldi forums. Will continue this discussion on the PF thread...

Checker on 2016-02-26 18:15

Opera@USB v12.18 is available.
