User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007100603 SeaMonkey/2.0a1pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007100603 SeaMonkey/2.0a1pre It is conventional that all menu items that invoke a dialog box should be followed by an ellipses (...), but in SeaMonkey some of these ellipses are missing. The menu items that I have found so far that should have ellipses but haven't are: Go>History; Tools>Cookie Manager>Manage Stored Cookies; Tools>Image Manager?Manage Image Permissions; Tools>Popup Manager>About Popup Manager; Tools>Password Manager >Manage Storred Passwords; Tools>Download Manager; Tools>Add-ons Manager (in Suiterunner only); Tools>Web Development>(all submenu items) Reproducible: Always
Well, some items are doubtful. Does a menuitem opening another (main) window warrant an ellipsis? If the "Download Manager" should have one, should all entries of the Window menu have ellipsises, too?

Ever confirmed: true
No, menu items that open a main window shouldn't have an ellipsis, only items that open a dialog box. This is a well-established computer convention. None of the items in the Window menu invoke dialog boxes, hence none of them should have ellipses. The "download manager" is not the main window of a SeaMonkey component, it is a dialog box that belongs to the browser, and as such should have an ellipsis.
