Add comment for editors about the envvar in seamonkey.

It has been patched upstream, and 1.51.0 should also have triggered
this. Nevertheless, the patch does fix it.

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