Just rebooted to be sure that the SeaMonkey launcher was still there: it
is. I then went to the 'Applications' launcher the one with the
magnifying glass w/+ sign in the middle, and SeaMonkey (the one I
created) is there under 'Most Frequently Used' (including icon) & works
when I click it. I note "the one I created" as I have 3 other versions
of SeaMonkey on the system, including some from ppa's & Ubuntu standard
for testing. The one I created is for SeaMonkey 2.3.1 (home folder).

I also notice that when I use the search, SeaMonkey (all versions) are
now showing up in 'Installed'.

Here is the ~./local/applications/SeaMonkey.desktop file:

I'll do one for Thunderbird & post that as well.
