Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.18) Gecko/20081031 SeaMonkey/1.1.13
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.18) Gecko/20081031 SeaMonkey/1.1.13

There is something wrong with playing sound on base of javascript codes, the shown site is only one example of the problem, sound also is never heard at other similar application of "mouseover" commands. In all such cases browsed from the IE, this command executes perfectly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.


Expected Results:  
It would be great if this sound problem is solved, in all other ways SeyMonkey works great and this flaw annoys.

I don't read Cyrillic at all, so I have no idea what the problem is here, but I'd love for someone to explain how this is a TE issue.

There is no need to read Cyrillic here. 
When you click the link shown as example, you see one sentence and the last word in it is underlined.
I can translate it to you: 
"If you want to hear the sound, bring the cursor HERE"
The word HERE is underlined. 
This is just an example program for this javascript, you can check it in the IE - when you move the cursor over the link, the sound plays - this is the purpose of this javascript and it does not work in the Seamonkey

there on the blue screen you will see two white buttons. Click the right one and the link will be opened in a new window.

I see what's going on now.

BGSOUND is an IE-only tag, so it's no wonder this doesn't work in anything but IE.

I highly doubt this is worth wasting TE resources on, but if someone is willing to work with the site to get them to change their example to use more cross-browser-friendly code, feel free.

Thank you, Chris, 
but could it be possible to adapt SeyMonkey to understand BGSOUND command?
Or is there a similar command understood by the SeaMonkey? 
When the browser fails to read some presently existing sites, it makes it somewhat 
not "full-fledged" and unaccomplished though 99% of it works perfect and outperforms IE from my point of view.

No.

See bug 226635. Both <embed> and <object> are *standard* tags. There is no reason anyone should be using BGSOUND at all.

INCOMPLETE since no one seems to care about evangelising this.
