Description

10 years ago
I downloaded "2008-04-13-02-trunk" <seamonkey-2.0a1pre.en-US.win32.installer.exe>,
and used the "Standard" install option.

1. The desktop icon displayed has "red on yellow" instead of "light blue on dark blue".
1r. Resetting it through Windows properties fixed this.

2. In the Windows Start menu, the mail item links to
<"C:\Documents and Settings\...\Bureau\-mail" C:\Program Files\SeaMonkey\seamonkey.exe>
2r. The first path should probably not be there at all; the parameter should be at the end.

I had never seen such things (when I was using .exe files).
I'll see if I can confirm / reproduce / find a regresseion timeframe.
