+The SeaMonkey project provides official versions of [% rnote.name %] for

+
+<h2 id="install">System Requirements, Installation and Uninstallation</h2>
+<div class="section">
+Before installing, make sure your computer meets the
+<a href="../../doc/2.0/system-requirements">system requirements</a>.
+[% rnote.name %] will offer to migrate your data from SeaMonkey 1.x
+or Mozilla 1.x at the first start after installation.
+You can find more details about installation, profile data and uninstallation
+in our <a href="../../doc/2.0/install-and-uninstall">install and uninstall</a>

+
+<h2 id="addons">Extensions and Themes</h2>
+<div class="section">
+Extensions installed under SeaMonkey 1.x are not migrated to SeaMonkey 2, and
+may not be compatible for reinstalling in this version due to major changes in
+our architecture. Please report any issues to the maintainer of the extension.
+Extensions and Themes for [% rnote.name %] can be installed from the
+<a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/seamonkey/">SeaMonkey Add-Ons</a> website
+or the &quot;Get Add-Ons&quot; section in the Add-Ons manager.
+</div>
+
+<h2 id="issues">Known Issues</h2>
+<div class="section">
+This list covers some of the known problems with [% rnote.name %].
+Please read this before reporting any new bugs.
+<ul>
+  <li>Installing [% rnote.name %] into the same location where an 1.x version of
+    SeaMonkey is installed will result in a non-working installation. Either
+    install [% rnote.name %] to a different location - for example the default
+    installation location as given by the installer - or un-install the older
+    version of SeaMonkey first. (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=526202">Bug 526202</a>)</li>
+  <li>Only one profile from SeaMonkey 1.x is migrated to [% rnote.name %]
+    automatically (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=383006">Bug 383006</a>)<br>
+    Workaround: Manually start migration as
+    <a href="http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_migration_-_SeaMonkey">described
+    in the knowledge base</a>.</li>
+  <li>Settings for the Outgoing Server (SMTP) are now applied stricter. An
+    error is reported if "Use name and password" is set but not requested by
+    the server, or if "Use secure authentication" is set but not offered by the
+    server. Thus, SMTP settings which worked with SeaMonkey 1.x may prompt an
+    error in 2.0 and need to be adjusted in the Account Settings. (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=524868">Bug 524868</a>)</li>
+  <li>MailNews account password prompts are no longer serial at startup (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=338549">Bug 338549</a>)<br>
+    Workaround: If a Master Password is set and you saved your login
+    credentials, only one prompt will appear at startup. You can disable this
+    new behavior by setting <tt>signon.startup.prompt</tt> to false in
+    <tt>about:config</tt>.</li>
+  <li>For some Windows users, cutting or copying text, links, whatever from
+    anywhere in [% rnote.name %] does not appear to place the cut or copied
+    text in the Clipboard. Some reports say that "McAfee SiteAdviser Service"
+    might be responsible and completely deleting or shutting down this service
+    might fix the problem. (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=525601">Bug 525601</a>)</li>
+  <li>Profile Roaming is not working any more (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378647">Bug 378647</a>)</li>
+  <li>"Turbo mode" (quick launch), including the tray icon, has been removed (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=361682">Bug 361682</a>)</li>
+  <li>Splash screen support (was shown by default on Windows) has been removed
+    due to not being implemented in the new toolkit (<a
+      href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=329742">Bug 329742</a>)</li>
+  <li>Download manager sometimes uses high amounts of CPU time with multiple
+    downloads active or in the list
+    (<a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=506731">Bug
+    506731</a>)</li>
+</ul>
+</div>
+
+<h2 id="troubleshooting">Troubleshooting</h2>
+<div class="section">
+<ul>
+  <li>
+    Some anti-virus software keeps detecting our installers as containing a
+    "Trojan" or "Downloader". This is a false positive and is some wrong
+    detection mechanism in the anti-virus software. The code in question is
+    actually from 7zip and decompresses the installer so that it's contents can
+    run and install SeaMonkey. That technology is widely used and probably can
+    be used to compress bad as well as good software, but the 7zip code itself
+    is perfectly sane. Mozilla scans all our files routinely when putting them
+    on the FTP server and we assure you that our installers are as clean as the
+    official Firefox downloads that are scanned by the same mechanisms.
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    Poorly designed or incompatible extensions can cause problems with
+    SeaMonkey, including make it crash, slow down page display, etc.
+    If you encounter strange problems relating to parts of SeaMonkey no longer
+    working, the browser not starting, windows with strange or distorted
+    appearance, degraded performance, etc, you may be suffering from Extension
+    or Theme trouble.
+    Restart SeaMonkey in Safe Mode. On Windows, start using the "Safe Mode"
+    shortcut created in your Start menu or by running
+    <code>seamonkey.exe -safe-mode</code>. On Linux, start with
+    <code>./seamonkey -safe-mode</code> and on Mac&nbsp;OS&nbsp;X, run:
+    <p><code>
+       cd /Applications/SeaMonkey.app/Contents/MacOS/<br>
+       ./seamonkey-bin -safe-mode
+    </code></p>
+    When started in Safe Mode all extensions are disabled and the Default theme
+    is used. Disable the Extension/Theme that is causing trouble and then start
+    normally.
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    If you uninstall an extension that is installed with your user profile
+    (i.e. you installed it from a Web page) and then wish to install it for all
+    user profiles using the -install-global-extension command line flag, you
+    must restart SeaMonkey once to cleanse the profile extensions datasource of
+    traces of that extension before installing with the switch. If you do not do
+    this you may end up with a jammed entry in the Extensions list and will be
+    unable to install the extension globally.
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    If you encounter strange problems relating to bookmarks, downloads, window
+    placement, toolbars, history, or other settings, it is recommended that you
+    try creating a new profile and attempting to reproduce the problem before
+    filing bugs. Create a new profile by running SeaMonkey with the -P command
+    line argument, choose the "Manage Profiles" button and then choose "Create
+    Profile...". Migrate your settings files (Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, etc)
+    over one by one, checking each time to see if the problems resurface. If you
+    do find a particular profile data file is causing a problem, file a bug and
+    attach the file.
+  </li>
