There's at least one security vulnerability that is missing from this NSS 

There was a bugfix in NSS 
to solve this issue but unfortunately it seems that this bugfix is not in 
3.20.x according to the developer entries. I didn't check the code yet if the 
bugfix is really missing!

So my question is why seamonkey uses still this outdated NSS version? It should 
use at least 3.21.1 (that is in latest firefox esr /45.4.0/ and also in latest 
thunderbird /45.4.0/)

As a workaround i can copy the nss libraries from firefox esr to seamonkey 
until a security release of seamonkey let's say 2.40.1 arrives. I tried this 
end i can start seamonkey with newer NSS library because they're compatible.

You can graft the NSS dlls, sure. I have done that in the past with
success. But, there is a build of 2.46 that's stable enough to use if
you want to test.

Just curious... Does the Linux version of SeaMonkey use the nss package that is included with the Linux distribution being used? The currently installed version here is 3.23.0-1 (Fedora 24).

Thanks in advance.
