  1. Some bugs: SeaMonkey 1.1.9 : Taking argument from cli

    If I cd to a directory "xyz" containing the index.html file, then the
    following command does not open it.
    [root@server:xyz]# /usr/bin/seamonkey index.html

    This causes e.g. GFTP and other applications not to be able to pass an
    html file to view or edit in seamonkey.
    There are no such problems with either Opera or Firefox.

    Firefox e.g. does it correctly
    [root@server:xyz]#/usr/bin/firefox index.html
    Opens the required page,
    while replacing the executable seamonkey fails and rather tries to open
    http://www.index.html

    This works with SeaMonkey 2 nightlies and I guess it's unlikely it will
    be fixed for the stable branch (SM 1.1.x).

    This is something that didn't work in SM 1.1.x (and all previous
    versions) and will work in SM 2.0. In general, seamonkey expects a URL
    on the commandline, like file:///home/username/xyz/index.html). It will
    also accept a file with the full path (/home/username/xyz/index.html),
    and it doesn't really seem unreasonable to expect an app like GFTP to
    use the full path.
