Hi, I'm new to open source and the Mozilla community and figured this would be a good task to start on. Can this be assigned to me?
If no one else is working on this, I would like to take it up. Any help regarding where the files are located in the source would be great.
Hi, is this bug still aktive?
I tried a couple of pages and was not able to reproduce the error.
a) No longer reproducible with  
a1) English SeaMonkey 2.45a1  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:48.0)
  Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0 Build 20160308001946  (Default Classic Theme)
  on German WIN7 64bit
a2) SeaMonkey German 2.39 final Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0
  from official download area)  Gecko/20100101  Firefox/42.0  
  Build 20151103191810  (Default  Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit

* en-US (German language pack) SeaMonkey 2.38  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:41.0)
  Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0 Build 20150923195647  (Default  Classic Theme)
