33 <application>SeaMonkey</application> is a browser suite, the Open Source
34 sibling of <application>Netscape</application>. It includes the browser,
35 composer, mail and news clients, and an IRC client. It is the follow-on
36 to the Mozilla browser suite.

40 The Mozilla project also hosts two subprojects that aim to satisfy the
41 needs of users who don't need the complete browser suite or prefer to have
42 separate applications for browsing and e-mail. These subprojects are
43 <xref linkend="firefox"/> and <xref linkend="thunderbird"/>. Both are
44 based on the <application>Mozilla</application> source code.

370 Along with using the <quote>Preferences</quote> menu to configure
371 <application>SeaMonkey</application>'s options and preferences to suit
372 individual tastes, finer grain control of many options is only available
373 using a tool not available from the general menu system. To access this
374 tool, you'll need to open a browser window and enter
375 <systemitem role="url">about:config</systemitem> in the address bar. This
376 will display a list of the configuration preferences and information
377 related to each one. You can use the <quote>Filter:</quote> bar to enter
378 search criteria and narrow down the listed items. Changing a preference
379 can be done using two methods. One, if the preference has a boolean value
380 (True/False), simply double-click on the preference to toggle the value
381 and two, for other preferences simply right-click on the desired line,
382 choose <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value. Creating
383 new preference items is accomplished in the same way, except choose
384 <quote>New</quote> from the menu and provide the desired data into the
