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

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

351 Along with using the <quote>Preferences</quote> menu to configure
352 <application>SeaMonkey</application>'s options and preferences to suit
353 individual tastes, finer grain control of many options is only available
354 using a tool not available from the general menu system. To access this
355 tool, you'll need to open a browser window and enter
356 <systemitem role="url">about:config</systemitem> in the address bar. This
357 will display a list of the configuration preferences and information
358 related to each one. You can use the <quote>Search:</quote> bar to enter
359 search criteria and narrow down the listed items. Changing a preference
360 can be done using two methods. One, if the preference has a boolean value
361 (True/False), simply double-click on the preference to toggle the value
362 and two, for other preferences simply right-click on the desired line,
363 choose <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value. Creating
364 new preference items is accomplished in the same way, except choose
