That's really frustrating.

Where did you get your original Seamonkey from, which was
in /usr/bin/seamonkey?  I don't use Mozilla, now Seamonkey, but Konqueror,
Firefox, or Opera.  I ask because according to my FC5 updates last night,
this was the first time that Seamonkey was installed. Apt-get showed Mozilla
being REPLACED, and Seamonkey as NEW.

I had been using seamonkey from extras.  I think seamonkey got
promoted into core as of yesterday, and as a result replaced mozilla,
and created this fiasco as someone thought that creating a seemless
transition for those still using mozilla was more important than for
those who had been using seamonkey all along.


I have Sun's JRE installed, and have just tried a site that I know needs Java,
both with Firefox, and my new Seamonkey, and both work ok. Same goes for the
Internet radio site that uses Realplayer10GOLD.

I hope you havn't had to re-setup too many plugins.

It was just a matter of copying them all from the old location to the
new, so it wasn't too painful .
