That's a really bad way of doing it.

* It's more difficult
* It's not supported by the Ubuntu packaging system - you get no
dependency resolution & no automatic updates
* There's no desktop integration - you have to manually create icons etc.

As I suggested already, the easy was is UbuntuZilla:

Just add the repo, then you can do

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install seamonkey-

... and press [Tab] for it to autocomplete. Then you get new versions
as soon as they're released and desktop integration etc. all happen
