By the way, there are methods to recover "archive" versions of those packages for some time.
https://download.opensuse.org/history/ keeps about a month of previous Tumbleweed releases.
But I have a suspicion that those packages were removed because there is some thing that is missing or not supported.
I you look at the build page, build of seamonkey has been disabled, so something happened, I guess.
More info I don't know how to find.
osc log is always helpful, you can use -D for looking at deleted packages:
# osc log -D openSUSE:Factory seamonkey |head -n5

seamonkey cannot be considered maintained upstream well enough anymore. Last release was in Sep 2019 but the platform code is based on Gecko 52.9.0 released June 2018. It does not build for TW and even if we can fix it it cannot be considered secure enough to be used anymore. If possible I will provide updates in the mozilla repo
A nice explanation of what the problems are was posted by one of the maintainers on "nntp:alt.os.linux.suse". I asked him to also post that information in this thread, or give me permission to forward it here.
