Why do you not understand that you *do not* have to reinstall the
standard SeaMonkey build (32bit) to get an update? Even if you have
autoupdates turned off all you need to do is click 'Help|Check for
Updates'. I suggest you install and try yourself so that you will get
some actual experience with SeaMonkey.

My memory is just fine.

Stop your dick swinging and 'step down considerably' if you don't know
what you are talking about. When you were studying biology I was
designing and implementing global networks.
