That's really frustrating.
Where did you get your original Seamonkey from, which was
in /usr/bin/seamonkey? I don't use Mozilla, now Seamonkey, but Konqueror,
Firefox, or Opera. I ask because according to my FC5 updates last night,
this was the first time that Seamonkey was installed. Apt-get showed Mozilla
being REPLACED, and Seamonkey as NEW.
I have Sun's JRE installed, and have just tried a site that I know needs Java,
both with Firefox, and my new Seamonkey, and both work ok. Same goes for the
Internet radio site that uses Realplayer10GOLD.
I hope you havn't had to re-setup too many plugins.
