Please review the referenced release notes for details.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/seamonkey-"

Gentoo has discontinued support for the SeaMonkey binary package. We recommend that users unmerge the SeaMonkey binary package:

# emerge --unmerge “www-client/seamonkey-bin”

NOTE: The Gentoo developer(s) maintaining the SeaMonkey binary package have discontinued support at this time. It may be possible that a new Gentoo developer will update it at a later date. The alternative is using the standard SeaMonkey package.
