Seamonkey ignored

Forum tags: 

After testing Bleachbit for the last few months on several versions of Linux, I find it never reports touching any Seamonkey files. Nor can I find evidence of any cleaning. I notice the XML file for Seamonkey looks in '~/.mozilla/default' which hasn't been used in quite some time AFAIK. It's been '~/.mozilla/seamonkey' for quite awhile. However, correcting that XML listing didn't help. I don't know Python code, but using grep shows firefox in several files, but no mention of seamonkey. I use both Firefox and Seamonkey. Is there a reason for this exclusion?

This is not intentional, and it sounds like it may be this problem: one of the "fun" parts of developing for Linux is each distribution can (and often enough does) put the same files in different places. Also major changes in the application change the path too. In other words, at one time I had it working for the the latest version of SeaMonkey on my Linux distribution, but some other Linux distributions use other paths. I noticed this is especially common with Firefox, SeaMonkey, Thunderbird, all the variations of these Mozilla/ applications.

Here are some choices for you

  • Edit the existing CleanerML (XML) files
  • Create your own CleanerML files in your personal cleaner directory
  • Give me the names of the Linux distributions, versions, and application versions (e.g., SeaMonkey 2.0 on Ubuntu 10.10)

Thanks for your response. I changed the cleaner XML file, but when I previewed it in Bleachbit, no files were listed from the directory. That was the reason I used grep in the folder above the cleaners folder, trying to see if any of the files referenced the Seamonkey cleaner. I was wondering if the python scripts themselves were not coded to check for Seamonkey.

I run the latest version of Bleachbit on Debian 6.0 (using the Bleachbit download for Debian 5.0), and Seamonkey 2.0.11 ("Iceape").
