moz & seamonkey both hosed

I don´t know what I did...
I tried to install some Mozilla Dictionary extension...that´s the only 
thing I can think of...but it did NOT successfully install.
Anyway, since then, the top navigation bar (with: file edit view, etc.) 
is basically gone.  I mean, I can see where it is supposed to
be, but it is way tiny, and none of the menus are visible or accessible.
And the status bar at the bottom now lacks the former icons to open 
moz-mail, composer, address-book, etc.
Basically, moz is crippled, and lacking important function, for which  
LOVE it.

I DLed the seamonkey project, to give that a shot, anyway, and it is 
functional, except the status bar on that is
HUGE, taking up a good two inches of screen real estate, which basically 

Sure, I have Firefox and Thunderbird installed but THEY SUCK!  Why?  
clicking on a mailto: link in Firefox
does absolutely nothing.  clicking on a link within a mail message in 
Thunderbird does absolutely nothing.
I would have to go through a lot of annoying copying & pasting.  And 
Firefox doesn´t tell you when Thunderbird has received a message, but 
Moz, while I am reading or working online, tells me that new mail has 
I need all of that functionality for my work, thus, I choose to have an 
integrated browser/mail suite (yeah, I and I sometimes
even use composer for some basic page editing, too.  It´s simple and 
lightweight, has both wysiwyg and html tabs,
and is integrated with my browser...or was, until Moz stopped working).  
I would get better performance with
Konq and Kmail, but I don´t like Kmail (I like Konq, I´ll admit).

So...anyway, I´m not here to start a browser war...I just want my 
beloved Mozilla working functionally, or, Seamonkey to not have a 2 inch 
status bar.  Tanto faz.

Any ideas?
