SeaMonkey Tracking Flags

(seamonkey2.54 fixed)



(2 attachments, 2 obsolete attachments)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.1
Build ID: 20170617112514

Steps to reproduce:

* Go to the "Web Development Tools" section in SeaMonkey Help
* Click on "Firefox Developer Tools site" (

Actual results:

WebIDE is not mentioned

Expected results:

Since WebIDE appears in the SeaMonkey Web Development tool, but not on the Fx devtools homepage, we should probably mention it separately in Help.

The WebIDE page ( is apparently focused on Firefox OS development. Since Firefox OS is discontinued, but you can also use WebIDE to debug Firefox for Android or other apps, the remote debugging guide ( might be a better resource to link to.
Component: General → Help Documentation
WebIDE is slated to go away eventually, and remote debugging will be moved elsewhere (see bug 1314811). But we can update the SeaMonkey documentation to remove it when that time comes.

Looks good. It should be "Firefox Developer Tools WebIDE" or just "Developer Tools WebIDE".

Additonal not. The Developer Tools will be moved into system addon which might break them in SeaMonkey very soon. So this help might need to change again before the next planned release 2.56.

Nit: this file should be in alphabetical order, so this should be under W not D.

Please can a new patch be generated to fix these issues? Thanks.

Once this patch is correct, the previous one needs to be backed out before this lands or this patch needs to include the back out.

r=me with that fixed.
