I have just upgraded to Seamonkey. I have enabled javascript, ticked every box in the edit section of the browser window. But I'm still unable to view most pages, and more often than not, get a message on the pages I open saying I need to enable javascript. So, I go back up to edit, preferences, then advanced to check the settings, it's still enabled and I still can't view the page. Do you know why this is happening? I really like Seamonkey and I'd hate to have to revert back to my old browser because this one doesn't work properly.
Thanks, Raye


When you installed SeaMonkey did you enable "Quick Launch", it places an icon in your System Taskbar nest to the clock.

If Quick Launch is enabled then you have to close SeaMonkey down completely, including Quick Launch, QL keeps some parts of SM in memory to quickly launch the SM application, and this may be preventing you form seeing your web pages with JavaScript.

Are you sure you have to restart SeaMonkey in order for the Enable JavaScript
option to be recognized? I've never had to do that.
Only if he had Quick Launch enabled and turned it off.


The OP was talking about enabling Java Script. I've been able to enable
and disable Java Script and have it affect the web page (after re-loading
the page) without stopping/restarting SeaMonkey.

My point is that if the OP had Quick Launch enabled when the JavaScript would not work on the web page, and he enabled JavaScript the Quick Launch may have kept the original setting in memory and executed the page with JavaScript from memory.

Disabling Quick Launch and closing SM then opening SM starts a fresh instance of SM with no instructions kept in the Quick Launch memory.
