I have downloaded the latest .xpi file and extracted/repacked it with the following change:

In install.rdf, replace the following line:


SeaMonkey 2.1 appears to be compatible with the latest HTTPS Everywhere add-on; I was able to view websites such as Wikipedia and Google with the normal HTTPS Everywhere behaviour.

This is fixed in the latest development release. However, we will need a patch to make the new context menu visible in Seamonkey...

Please excuse me, but I have no idea about anything regarding git, patches etc. (I think this is probably something I really need to learn).

But after doing some reading, I've found the reason for which the toolbar item is not being displayed:

As per the following URL, navigator.xul must be used instead of browser.xul for SeaMonkey:

To fix this, simply have two overlays (similar to the StumbleUpon addon). So in chrome.manifest,

overlay chrome://navigator/content/browser.xul chrome://https-everywhere/content/toolbar_button.xul
overlay chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul chrome://https-everywhere/content/toolbar_button.xul

Summary: HTTPS Everywhere support for SeaMonkey 2.1Make the context menu look sensible in SeaMonkey

I've made this change in git. In my seamonkey theme the results look kind of weird (the button has a huge label to the right of it) so some tweaking will be required, but we're on the right track.
