User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.23) Gecko/20090910 SeaMonkey/1.1.18
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.23) Gecko/20090910 SeaMonkey/1.1.18

I've tried SeaMonkey on Puppy Linux to use the online music finding application of midomi.com with no success:

When I click on the Adobe Flash layer that says "Click and Sing or Hum" a message asking for microphone using permission appears. I click on "Allow" button but it doesn't get it.

With other web browsers/Linux distros this Flash layer appears cut. But there is an easy workaround: to go to:
http://www.midomi.com/objects/midomiLandingVoiceSearch.swf
(taken from http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=59472)

But this workaround doesn't work with SeaMonkey on Puppy Linux. The same problem happens: the click on "Allow" button has no effect.

Reproducible: Always

Is package from ftp server mozilla or repository Linux distribution?

Support For SeaMonkey 1.x Dropped, see ( http://www.seamonkey-project.org/news#2010-03-16 or http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/seamonkey/archives/2010/03/support_for_sea.html )

Reporter, can you try and reproduce with SeaMonkey v2.0.3 or 2.1a1pre? (2.1a1pre isn't stable enough for everyone's daily use yet).
Version: unspecified → SeaMonkey 1.1 Branch

I've used the SeaMonkey that comes in the last/current version of Puppy Linux. I don't have SeaMonkey v2..... I hope that someone that has it will be able to try: http://www.midomi.com/

I've just upgraded SeaMonkey to v2.0, but it has double failure:

+ The same of other web browsers/Linux distros: the Flash layer appears cut (-> I have to use the URL of the workaround).

+ The same of Seamonkey v1.1.18: click on Flash link called "Allow" has no effect (only possible from the URL of the workaround, because the link or button doesn't appear in site's home).

See also Firefox bug 443715 (and maybe Firefox bug 526343).

I'm closing a lot of bugs which are filed as Adobe Flash bugs which are either irrelevant, not actionable, or not serious enough to track in the Mozilla bug tracker. For the most part, Flash bugs should be filed in Adobe bugbase, and we'll only track a few highly-critical issues in the Mozilla tracker.
