Issues with Sea Monkey

    I just downloaded and installed this a few days ago. I hadn't heard of it. I was
    having problems with Netscape. Seems stable so far however, I have a couple of
    problems.

    1. Sometimes, when I launch it, instead of going to the home page I've selected,
    it goes to a page asking me to be a part of testing the softweare, which I'm not
    interested in doing. But I don't want to keep seeing this page. Why does it over
    ride my home page?

    2. Lots of popups even though I have them turned off in Preferences. Something
    I'm stuck with? Another reason I got away from Netscape.

    3. The "back" button on my Logitech mouse doesn't work in Sea Monkey, though it
    works fine in Firefox and Netscape. That is to say, one of my mouse buttons is
    assigned to go back to the previous page and it doesn't work. I've checked the
    settings in SM and it still won't work. Another annoyance.

    Maybe I should take part in debugging because of these issues, but I'm hoping
    there's an easier fix. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    You should install AdBlock Plus extension from http://mozilla.com website.
    It works with Seamonkey too and perfectly kills all unwanted shit.

    Curious problems, and I don't have any ready answers. However, some
    things to ponder:

    Are you using a new profile created only for SeaMonkey, or are you using
    your old Netscape profile?
    Do you have any extensions installed?
    Do you always launch the program the same way, from the same shortcut?
    Do you have Quick Launch enabled?

    The easiest thing to try is to create a new profile and see if the
    issues go away.

    If it ain't broke fix it anyway! If it's broke fix it and make it worse!
