  You don't need to uninstall anything to try out seamonkey. Just
download the .tar.gz. Then sudo mv seamonkey hit tab to autocomplete
to /usr/local/
cd to /usr/local/
ls sea* to make sure it is there and you are in the right place.
sudo tar zvxf seamonk here hit the tab key it will autocomplete and it
will untar into its own directory. You can then call it from there or
add an icon to your desktop or taskbar or where ever you want. Or you
can put a symlink in say /usr/bin/ to it.
To do this cd /usr/bin/ then sudo ln -s /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey

  Re the mplayer  I don't have it, but do you have the mozilla-plugins
installed and are they in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory ?
