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

42 separate applications for browsing and e-mail. These subprojects are
43 <xref linkend="firefox"/> and <xref linkend="thunderbird"/>. Both are

396 Along with using the <quote>Preferences</quote> menu to configure
397 <application>SeaMonkey</application>'s options and preferences to suit
398 individual tastes, finer grain control of many options is only available
399 using a tool not available from the general menu system. To access this
400 tool, you'll need to open a browser window and enter
401 <systemitem role="url">about:config</systemitem> in the address bar. This
402 will display a list of the configuration preferences and information
403 related to each one. You can use the <quote>Filter:</quote> bar to enter
404 search criteria and narrow down the listed items. Changing a preference
405 can be done using two methods. One, if the preference has a boolean value
406 (True/False), simply double-click on the preference to toggle the value
407 and two, for other preferences simply right-click on the desired line,
408 choose <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value. Creating
409 new preference items is accomplished in the same way, except choose
410 <quote>New</quote> from the menu and provide the desired data into the
