SeaMonkey now uses gtk3 on Linux. If you experience a problem because of this please file a bug and link it to Switch Linux builds to GTK3 with SeaMonkey 2.49. Pleae try another OS theme first. Some of them are buggy and cause problems with SeaMonkey, Thunderbird and Firefox.
With some Linux themes, the menulist- and history-dropmarker didn't show. It was actually there but only 1 pixel wide. The problem, has been fixed. As a result the dropmarker in the location bar is now also shown a little wider under Windows.
Scrollbars didn't show the buttons under Linux. The problem, has been fixed.
WebRTC has been disabled by default. It needs an add-on to enable it per site.
The active title bar was not visually emphasized under Linux or using the Windows XP/Vista/7 Classic theme. We opted to show it with a striped color bar.
For security, parts of bug 1035091 were ported in bug 1411708. This might cause problems with add-ons like Stylish which use moz-document. Set the pref "layout.css.moz-document.content.enabled" to "true" to overcome this but be aware that this disables the added security fix.
