Adblock Plus
SeaMonkey 2.33.1

How to reproduce

new profile

1) Install Adblock Plus
2) Restart SeaMonkey
3) Navigate to
4) Click "open this dialogue"

Observed behaviour

Got a message from the browser saying that the abp: protocol isn't recognized.
This is apparently because Adblock Plus does not call window.getBrowser() to retrieve browser in SeaMonkey.

With the modification suggested in , this appears to work as expected.

Expected behaviour

Adblock Plus should have offered to add Fanboy's Social Blocking List subscription.

What to change

In lib/appSupport.js the SeaMonkey-specific getBrowser method should call and return the value of window.getBrowser() if window.gBrowser is null.

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
