Well since you posted. As a experiment. I downloaded the 2nd link which is the 32bit build since my Puppy Install is 32bit.

I can install .debs in this Puppy Install.

They are like _____holes. Everyone has one.

PS. My iso downloads come from Sourceforge.

Edit: The crapware described from Sourceforge are the same .exe that supply crapware from Cnet and Softpedia download sites. Not .debs or .tz or iso.
Only .exe files. Which only concerns Windows.

This was a notice that was sent up by my os itself; not a third party. There was an option to continue with the install, I was just exercising caution. Linux is very good about detecting Trojan Horses, etc., so I stopped. It may be that the os recognized this wasn't a Ubuntu package.

Okay...got it! I hope I did no harm in going ahead with installation of Seamonkey in the face of "dire" warnings! But it seems to be working fine. Thank you! Now one last thing: how do I set Seamonkey to be the default browser on Xubuntu? I went to Settings>Settings Manager>Preferred Applications and under web browser I typed in "Seamonky." But then when I tried to log in, I got a sign that said "Browser not found." Maybe I'm supposed to type in something else?? Thank you again--I apologize for the time this has taken!

If Seamonkey is located in a directory not in your PATH then you might have to enter the complete path e.g. /opt/seamonkey/seamonkey (or wherever it was you put it)

Great! So in my case I put it in the "Downloads" file so then the path would be /downloads/seamonkey. Is that correct? And where do I place that path so as to create Seamonkey as the default browser? For some reason the Preference page for browsers has the "Set Default Browser" switch grayed out so I cannot activate it.

Code:
which seamonkey
will inform you where the launcher went to

Probably /usr/bin/seamonkey

or /usr/local/bin/seamonkey

if it launches from terminal OK.

Fantastic...that worked! It was /usr/bin/seamonkey. Thank you for that! Is there something I can do so that when I click "web browser" on the main page it will just open to Seamonkey? That's neat opening it from the terminal, though!

Is Seamonkey no longer supported by Ubuntu?

The newest version of SeaMonkey just came out June 2014. Just go to the official website Seamonkey Project.
