IIRC, we have nothing Firefox-specific except the install.rdf . There's no one testing it on SeaMonkey, nor working on a SeaMonkey port, though.

Of course, if a volunteer were to come by and help us with it, the story would be different.
OK, so I've got Minimo up and running. Can I just drop the Lector xpi into the chrome folder? (I'm not really expecting it to be that simple!).

Yea, I believe it is the install. I couldn't get it to install. The rest of SeaMonkey is basically the same but I really like the integration and UI on that product. Is there a work around to the install issue?

No guarantee here, but you can try the following steps:
* rename the .xpi to .zip
* extract its contents to a directory of your choice
* edit install.rdf and replace its contents with
Code:
<RDF:RDF>
−
<RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:mozilla:install-manifest" em:id="lector@openberg.org" em:name="OpenBerg Lector 5" em:version="2007.07.28" em:creator="David Teller" em:description="Read e-Books from Firefox" em:homepageURL="http://www.openberg.org" em:updateURL="http://www.openberg.org/downloads/openberg_lector_update.rdf" em:iconURL="chrome://openberglector/skin/classic/openberg.png" em:optionsURL="chrome://openberglector/content/preferences.xul">
<em:targetApplication RDF:resource="rdf:#$rduQc"/>
</RDF:Description>
<RDF:Description RDF:about="rdf:#$rduQc" em:id="{92650c4d-4b8e-4d2a-b7eb-24ecf4f6b63a}" em:minVersion="1.0" em:maxVersion="2.0.0.*"/>
</RDF:RDF>
* re-zip
* re-rename to .xpi
* try and install the new .xpi .

That's a quick & dirty hack, but it might work.

Sorry, I have no clue about Minimo extensions. On the other hand, if you're willing to take the time to hunt and read Minimo documentation, we'll be happy to get your help

Thanks for trying.
