Forget your Windows habits.

Google for "how to [do X] Ubuntu" and learn.

E.g. for Seamonkey, add the Ubuntuzilla repositories and then you can
just install it from S/W Centre. Google Ubuntuzilla to find it. It's
easier than the terrible dangerous Windows cycle of:

* download raw binary from untrusted unknown website
* run it with full local admin privileges
* hope it does not rape your machine
