Description

Reported for the german Help, but missing in the english one too.

It was also reported that the help is not in the same order as the option-window.
Use SeaMonkey Mail as the default mail application should be after the missing
"Only check ..." Option, before The Mailnews Startpage Setting.
Currecntly it is between "Confirm when moving folders to the Trash" and "Remember last selected message"
Which product/version are you using?

For the same pane, Help lists "Use SeaMonkey Mail as the default application" as the second option, when in fact it is now below the checkboxes and named "Make SeaMonkey the default application for:". I think both issues should be fixed through this bug, which should be easy.

I will formally look it this on Sunday, but here's some comments (I'm open for arguments):


+  <li><strong>Only check for new mail after opening Mail &amp;
+    Newsgroups</strong>: Select this to delay checking for new messages until
+    after the Mail &amp; Newsgroups window has been opened at least once (be it
+    automatically <a href="cs_nav_prefs_appearance.xhtml#appearance">on
+    startup</a> or manually). By default, &brandShortName; even checks for new
+    mail if just a browser window is open.</li>

The "even" sound a bit odd here, I think. At the same time you would want to mention this... How about starting with "By default, SeaMonkey checks for new messages even if only a browser window is open. Choose this option if you want to delay…"?

+  <li class="win"><strong>Make &brandShortName; the default application
+    for</strong>: Select &brandShortName; as the default application for mail,
+    news or feeds; for Windows and from within other applications such as
+    Microsoft Word.
+
+    <p><strong>Note</strong>: Setting &brandShortName; as the default
+      application for mail, news or feeds may remove the connection that other
+      applications had with these tasks. Refer to the documentation of the
+      respective applications in order to find how to restore the defaults.</p>


How about keeping the old style, since that will make it possible to avoid the ";":

"Select &brandShortName; as the default mail, news or feeds application for Windows and from within other applications such as Microsoft Word."

and "Setting &brandShortName; as the default mail, news or feeds application ..."
