32 <application>SeaMonkey</application> is a browser suite, the Open Source
33 sibling of <application>Netscape</application>. It includes the browser,

39 The Mozilla project also hosts two subprojects that aim to satisfy the

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
365 <quote>New</quote> from the menu and provide the desired data into the
