User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 SeaMonkey/2.42
Build ID: 20160503211837

Steps to reproduce:

Open the "Browsing the Web" or "Customizing SeaMonkey" section of Help.

Actual results:

Netscape, AIM, and ICQ website URLs and branding appear in screenshots of the tab bar, personal toolbar, and location bar, including "" which no longer exists (redirects to AOL).

Expected results:

Websites used as examples should be replaced with more current, possibly Mozilla-related, sites.
We will need a volunteer who creates new "screenshots" (some of them are not simple screenshots, but contain additional elements like a mouse pointer, encirclements, ...) who creates tons of pictures with similar dimensions and the same file names as the outdated screenshot pictures.

A way how to proceed can be:

1. download latest en-US Language pack from <>
  (like seamonkey-2.47a1.en-US.langpack.xpi 2016-06-08 06:26  880K)
2. Unzip .xpi
3. In files Explorer search unzipped folder for "*.*, sorted by file type
4. Preview all image file types and check whether they are still up to date
5. If not 
5.1 Open new Bug report for each picture you want to replace
5.2 Create a new screenshot (with additional edits if necessary) with same file 
    name and similar dimensions like the outdated one, attach that file 
5.4 In a comment add information in what sub folder (probably "images")
6. Someone will have to replace the image in the source code on Mercury code

We might already have bug reports for this issue and particular images.  Isaac Schemm, did you already check this?

In a quick search I found locationbar.png, tabbed_browsing_bar.png, taskbar-ab.png with Netscape related contents.

This one might have localization impact.
Ever confirmed: true
I don't see any other bugs when searching Bugzilla for "netscape help". I'll make some updated images and bugs for each.
There is of course bug 373459.
Fwiw, the images we're talking about can be seen here:

You can also use to browse the source (I do), but it's down at the moment.

If someone ends up here from the correct bug # is 1280299.

I think that takes care of all the Netscape references in the illustrations - unless anyone finds more, we can close this bug.

All dependencies are for seamonkey2.47, and this is a meta bug, so (as far as I know) this bug would be as well.
