Seamonkey and QupZilla need update?

What is the status of www/seamonkey and prospect of updating from 2.39 to the current 2.40, which was released from upstream on March 14, 2016?

What makes me nervous is my bank saber-rattling about needing a more current browser.

Seamonkey 2.39 worked on this bank, now it blocks me with error message about my browser not being up-to-date; Seamonkey still works for other online financial services.  

I figure either the bank website doesn't like Seamonkey, though Firefox also appears in the user-agent string, or doesn't like FreeBSD, insisting on Windows or Mac.

I also have www/qupzilla-qt4 1.8.9, see on that current version is 2.0.1.  I have used qupzilla-qt4 1.8.9, but it seems less robust that Seamonkey 2.39.  Reason for my interest is the ability to fudge the user-agent string; I believe Xombrero and Midori also have this ability.

If I have to build qupzilla anew, hopefully updated, I might switch to qupzilla-qt5.

uname -a shows

FreeBSD amelia 11.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #10 r294248: Mon Jan 18 11:28:40 UTC 2016     root at amelia:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SANDY11NC  amd64

I am getting ready to update both NetBSD and FreeBSD.
