With EN-US SeaMonkey 2.33.1 (German Language pack) Gecko/20100101 Build 20150321194901 (Default Theme) on German WIN7 64bit I observe that particular latest add-on can not be downloaded from version list in AMO. Steps how to reproduce: 1. in browser open <https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/ublock/versions/> » Most top Version 0.9.3.5 is suitable for SeaMonkey 2.21 or more recent 2. Do mouseover from top (pink background) to bottom at half way between text and right table border of versions list » A grey [Dowlnload now] button appears Expected: Mouse pointer changes to "Can Click" view or rightclick will allow download with warning or whatever else Actual: no way to start download Now try again with FF 37.0.2. Here in step 2 you will see the yellow brown striped [Add to FF] button as expected. a) So this might be a SeaMonkey Bug? To check this I downloaded Version 0.9.3.5, modified add-on - id in "install.rdf" and uploaded the modified add-on to AMO. For this Addon (not from list, because only 1 version available) SeaMonkey download worked (until ad-on became rejected as expected) as expected with yellow brown striped download button. So I think there is an AMO part in the Problem b) You can observe the same (or similar) effect at <https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/wot-safe-browsing-tool/versions/?page=1#version-20150421>. First (latest) version can not be downloaded as per step 2, but for second and older versions download is possible without problems. Here also download of Version 20150421 with FF works without problems. c) I wonder whether it's a related problem that from <https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/ublock/> Download of µBlock 0.9.1.0 is not possible with SM, viisble effects as in step 2 Iff appropriate, please forward this one with comment to AMO related product-component

Ever confirmed: true
If I replace "firefox" in URL by "seamonkey", download becomes possible, the yellow striped button will appear when mouseover download button.
(In reply to Rainer Bielefeld from comment #4) > If I replace "firefox" in URL by "seamonkey", download becomes possible, the > yellow striped button will appear when mouseover download button. I tried that but this doesn't work for all versions. "Version 20150421" is still inaccessible for me event with "seamonkey" in the URL.
(In reply to lemon_juice from comment #5) Me too, now. It seems there was a small step in between or whatever what additionally is required to get it working, my description seems to be incomplete.
Currently I can not reproduce how to get it running for WOT, but I observed something other strange: 21. In Add-on Manager search for block → View all results 22. Modify Search string to "ublock" and wait for suggestions 23. Click first suggestion "µBlock 0.9.1.0" » leads me to <https://addons.mozilla.org/de/android/addon/ublock/> Android?!? because there was no Version info in the URL 24. 'See other Versions' » Version 0.9.3.5 can be downloaded with my WIN SeaMonkey, button is active, normla blue button 25. In URL modify "android" to "firefox": now donload is impossible, although there is no Version info in URL 26. In URL modify "firefox" to "seamonkey": now donload is possible again, but now with yellos striped "preliminary permission" button Seems there are cookies or other secret knowledge AMO uses, for me as a user that all is very mysterious
Still a problem!

Digged out for burying it somewhere else: I think it's not realistic to hope for a fix from AMO side. Workarounds are known. Browsing tool adaptions seems challenging. So may be we should create some "Tips and Tricks" mentioning workarounds (wiki?) and close this one WONTFIX? I doubt that there will be many requests to convert an older Version of an add-on.
