Right, got my bookmarks, mail etc back.
Now I've got this weird deformed status/component bar at the bottom.
How can I shrink it back to normal size?
Thanks in advance,

Jo, this "weird deformed status/component bar at the bottom" of the
browser screen usually means that one (or more) of your extensions is
not suitable for SM 1.1.17.
To fix this, you need to install the Extension Manager 2.0 and the
Extension UnInstaller API 2.1 fromhttp://www.mozmonkey.com/. Then you
should be able to see the Extension Manager under Tools in SeaMonkey.
Use the Extension Manager to disable or uninstall one or two extensions
at a time and the re-start SeaMonkey until the Browser image looks
right. Try and find an updated version of the sus extension.
Hope that helps.
Hi Daniel, thanks for replying. As this is a clean install of
Seamonkey (and I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times since
yesterday) isn't it a bit odd that it would have an extension that I
Unfortunately I can't get your recommended file to install as I get an
error message "not a valid install package" error for both components.
Running the file from a download simply asks me to pick an application
to open it with.
Under Tools I have the option to click on Extension Uninstaller but
doing so simply brings up a warning telling me to install the app,
which I can't do.
Grateful for further guidance. This extra large bit at the bottom of
my screen has never been a problem before - I've used Seamonkey for
several years. It's odd that it's cropped up now. The only difference
is that I now have newly re-installed Vista along with SP2 ( SP1
caused the crash).
The new component named Extension Manager 2.0 has never worked for me.
But the former one, originally named just Extension Uninstaller works
perfectly together with the API component.
If you want to try it tell me and I can send you that by e-mail.
Thanks Rubens, I'll let you know if I need it - I think I saw it there
for download so might give it a try.
Meantime I have a more perplexing issue. While last night and this
morning I was able to open Seamonkey and have all my old mail and
bookmarks open, now when I load Seamonkey it loads without all of
these items. Opening Profile Manager still shows me the default
profile where I copied everything but it's just not displaying.
Looking at the users/profile directory shows the data, but Seamonkey
is simply not loading it on startup.
Jo, my normal response would be to tell you that SM didn't close down
correctly and that when you started up today, you must have made up a
new profile. I'd then tell you to go to your Profile Manager to see if
you had an extra profile......but you've been there and you haven't, so
I'm a bit stumped, but...
Just to be real sure, close SeaMonkey, wait about a minute, then give
the Windows three finger salute (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and if you see SM still
listed as running, click on it and End Task. Close the Window, re-start
SM....how are things now??
Hi Daniel, there's definitely nothing in the processes relating to
Seamonkey. And when I first re-booted started SM with a cleanmachine I
still got no profile.
I've already un- and re-installed SM a couple of times. Now I'm
thinking about ditching it altogether and using an other app. But what
mail apps will accept an imported SM profile?
O.K., Jo, before you go away, open SeaMonkey, have a look at
Edit->Mail&Newsgroup Preferences, select your email account (may be your
only account), have a look at the bottom of the "Server Settings"
screen, it should tell you where your Local Directory is. Note this
location. Have a look
to un-hide your folders if necessary.
Then close SeaMonkey, make sure it's not still running by Ctrl-Alt-Del,
then do a Windows Find File or Folder looking for "inbox" (without the
""). The reason I've asked you to do this search is that when you
un-install SeaMonkey, you are just un-installing the program, your
profile, which contains all your e-mails, etc, is not un-installed. It
may be just that when you did a re-install of SeaMonkey, it might not
have found the old profile. If the search does find an "inbox" (without
the ""), it might just be in your lost profile. If you only find one
"inbox" (without the ""), is it in the same location as the Local
Directory you noted in SM earlier??
Well a couple of times yesterday I managed to get my profile to open
with SM but then subsequently not. Today not at all. I've deleted all
other profiles except the Jo profile from Jo/AppData/Mozilla/Profiles
and it's the only profile available under Profile Manager and still it
I really need to access my old mail. Is there any way I can export it
to open in another mail app?
O.K., Jo, first step, give yourself a new profile....Go into the Profile
Manager, Manage Profiles, Create New Profile, call it something distinct
and on that screen, click the button "Choose Folder" so that YOU can put
the profile exactly where YOU want it. Finish the rest of the
installation, O.K.'ing your way out of this process, but select your new
profile. Now close SeaMonkey totally, don't even have it running in your
Quick Launch portion of the Windows Desktop.
Do a Windows Find File or Folder to locate files called "inbox" (without
the ""). This is the files in which all your received emails are held.
You will also find "inbox.msf" files, don't worry about them as they are
just index files for the inbox, and which will need to be re-indexed
later. One of the "inbox" will be in the location you just created.
Change the names of the other inboxs to inbox1, inbox2, etc.
Now, use your Windows "My Computer" or "Explorer" or whatever to make
your way to the locations of these renamed files, cut the inbox1, then
make your way to where you put YOUR new profile and when you find its
inbox, paste the inbox1 at the same level as YOUR inbox. Do the same
thing for all the other inboxn's.
Now open SeaMonkey and you should, hopefully, see all these inboxn's
lined up in your profile, so you can move the emails from each inboxn
into your main inbox.
When you've got the inbox sorted out, you may want to do a similar
process for your "Sent", "Drafts" and "Templates" folders.
