The "Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey"
<http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/>
Makes available many additional Add-ons for seamonkey, for details see <http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=2834855>.
Tests are very promising.

Currently it's not easy for "normal" users to find and to use that possbility, so we will have to think about way how to ease access to converted Add-Ons.
a) Prominent hint in Seamonkey Help?
b) Prominent hint in Seamonkey Add-on Manager?
c) Some kind of "whitlest" what makes appear Hint in Firefox (and so on)
   addons?
d) Allow dDownload of already converted add-ons instead of saddling that
   work to users?
e) other possibilities?

It might be useful to handle this one as a META-Task-Bug and to open additional Bugs for some of the items in the list.

This one also depends on "Bug 1149016 - Add-on Compatibility Reporter 2.0.5 does not work with SeaMonkey". User-feedback by this tool would ease keeping overview a lot.

The roots of "Bug 1162864 - Add-on find results from speech balloon not found in final search results" might have impact here
