On the SeaMonkey menu bar, select [Tool > Chrome Manager].  (The Chrome
Manager is a component of Mnenhy.)  Wait a few seconds until you see
"Packages", "Skins", and "Locales" in the window.  Select the plus sign
to the left of "Packages".  Your extensions should appear in the list.
Select an extension and then press the Delete key on your keyboard.  Do
this for each extension to be removed.  Then select the OK button.  This
will terminate SeaMonkey.

Note:  In some cases, remnants of an extension might remain.  The only
time I have a problem with this is with FlashBlock, which must be
removed before a new version can be installed.  I have recorded the
successful steps for dealing with that extension.

You might want to visit the home pages for your extensions (e.g., within
<https://addons.mozilla.org/> or <http://www.mozdev.org/>) and read if
there are any special instructions for removing the extensions.

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications.  You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.
