How do I uninstall SeaMonkey?

Somehow it installed itself on my box without any action on my part. All of a sudden, I would click on Mozilla, and a page would come up showing SeaMonkey as the listed browser. I would have no real qualms with that other than that it is having trouble reading my TV schedule page, keeps running bad script or something. Now all I have to do is get Mozilla back to the way it was without SeaMonkey. I am thinking that this is possibly an evaluation package or an alpha or beta, but I still did not do anything to prompt its installation. I am also running into the same problem when I run Firefox, instead of Mozilla.

Mozilla is obsolete and no longer supported or updated, Seamonkey is the updated & supported replacement, other than that i suggest Firefox & Thunderbird...

If you're having the same problem with Firefox, and its something you really want to make work, try Opera. Its pretty easy to install and set up.

Is it listed in YAST or whatever package manager you have for installing software? I haven't run SUSE since 7.0 but you should be able to uninstall it in your package manager and reinstall your Mozilla from there.
