Many addons for firefox don't work on seamonkey. Is there any risk in overriding the security settings? Or is there perhaps a tool that allows for compatibility?

I like the idea of a calendar and mailclient in the same piece of software, but if I can't use the addons I use in firefox, I'm sticking with firefox.

Have you checked through the Seamonkey addons list?
Here is also a blog reference from PuppyLinux (which uses Seamonkey).

There are many addons for SeaMonkey, and many Firefox addons can also work in SeaMonkey. There is a site that has some Firefox addons modified for SeaMokey:

Seamonkey is great if you are already using PuppyLinux.

you may want to add this addon to seamonkey : checkcompatibility

Most of the time, it won't work, but sometime, it can force seamonkey to install an addon supposed to be incompatible for no good reason.

Also, there is Seamonkey Compatibility Tables of Converted Extensions that can convert and install many FF extensions.
