Yes but...

Here is where I got it from:

Here is a copy of the help-->about Seamonkey from the version that 
showed no plugins:

See a list of contributors to the Mozilla Project.
     Read the licensing information for this product.
     Read the release notes for this version.
     See the build configuration used for this version.
     Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 on x86_64; rv:8.0.1) 
Gecko/20111121 Firefox/8.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.5

Maybe I misunderstood what Build identifier means. I thought it was 
saying this was a 64bit build of Seamonkey.

The references to i686 rightly or wrongly made me think I had the 64bit
