Currently, the default home page for SeaMonkey 1.0a builds is <http://www.mozilla.org/start/>. This is likely to be confusing for many users, because SeaMonkey is not an official Mozilla browser. It seems like we need a new home page that contains information appropriate for "Getting Involved with SeaMonkey".
So long we don't have a good page we could use IMHO the same URL as the throbber, <http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/>.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
In that http://www.mozilla.org/start/ page it says "You've downloaded (or compiled) a copy of Mozilla" , well, to the user this is not true. It also says "with one of our stable releases"... and "stable releases" is a link to http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/ , which is leading the user to a no-Seamonkey page (is not even mentioned). Keep up the good work! Long live Seamonkey!
Exactly, we need a new real start apge first. The project page isn't really helpful for some new user who has downloaded and installed SeaMonkey already.
We really should get this into Beta to make branding better...

Comment on attachment 202816 [details] third time's the charm This page has been added at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/start/ Now we can look into changing the URL in SeaMonkey code itself :)
Created attachment 202971 [details] [diff] [review] change prefs to new start page This patch (for both trunk and branch) moves us over to using this new start page in SeaMonkey.
Comment on attachment 202971 [details] [diff] [review] change prefs to new start page Nit: you missed the hit in navigator.xul line 596. r+sr=me with that fixed.
Comment on attachment 202971 [details] [diff] [review] change prefs to new start page requesting branch approval for this SeaMonkey-only string change
Checked in the fix on trunk, leaving the bug open for branch checkin.
Created attachment 203118 [details] [diff] [review] v2: change start page URLs in SeaMonkey (checked into trunk) OK, I think it's better to attach the really checked in version with the navigatorOverlay change that Neil pointed to, and requesting branch approval for this one. This is a simple SeaMonkey-only string change.
Comment on attachment 203118 [details] [diff] [review] v2: change start page URLs in SeaMonkey (checked into trunk) Re-requesting approval flag that seems most appropriate after firstname.lastname@example.org cancelled the previous request.
Comment on attachment 203118 [details] [diff] [review] v2: change start page URLs in SeaMonkey (checked into trunk) I got the email explaining why after the bugmail, so cancelling request.
checked into branch (cleared to land by mtschrep in email to seamonkey-council).
