I will try the next release of V2. For now, V1 does enough. I miss the
tabs automatically reloading on the next startup, but I can live
without it for now. What's weird now is clicking on links in emails
will not automatically raise SeaMonkey to the top. I can live with
that too. Also, going back to v1 meant recreating any new message
filters and accounts that had been created in V2. I love the product
regardless! I am impressed that V2 didn't destroy what V1 already had
in place. If other products in Alpha could get that concept down the
world would be a much better place! Thanks and keep up the good work
