MacAfee Doesn't Support Seamonkey?

My wife's broadband internet (cable) service was switched from 
TimeWarner Road Runner to Comcast.  The Computer Associates security 
products (firewall, antivirus, etc.) that came free with Road Runner no 
longer can be updated, and she's supposed to switch to the free MaCafee 
security products, but they only support IE and Firefox, not Seamonkey 
(their web site will not allow the download using Seamonkey, and I'm 
guessing even if I used IE to download it, they probably wouldn't 
protect while surfing with Seamonkey).

So, what is a good firewall and antivirus for her to use with Seamonkey?

I use a router with a built in firewall. However when I boot into
windows I also use ZoneAlarm (free version) and Bitdefender (free
version). The free version of BD isn't interactive, but you can schedule
it to do scans at any time of day/interval etc., it's an excellent AV &
checks for automatic AV updates every hour.

I use free programs, Avast anti-virus, and Sygate personal firewall 
[which may no longer be available, not sure].  The free version of 
Sygate is no longer supported since the company was sold.  :(

I downloaded McAfee with the IE, and it works fine with SeaMonkey 
thereafter.

On XP boxes I have Avast AV Home edition (free), Kerio (nowadays
Sunbelt) Personal Firewall - you may have to search for the latest
version predating acquisition of Kerio by Sunbelt (which is free for
personal use, I'm not sure about the Sunbelt PFW) in case you want to
use it free of charge.

You should also consider disabling some dangerous and unneeded windows
services (see e.g. http://www.blackviper.com/ for informations).

I suggest Jetico for a software firewall.
Zone Alarm has become bloatware
(the oldest version actually does everything you need done)
and most of the firewalls that were once freeware are no longer free.

Before setting her free to use crutches as her primary weapons,
start her out with behavior modification as a first line of security:

Just wasting CPU cycles.
All *other* brands of software firewalls[1] do **egress** filtering.
A software firewall that doesn't filter OUTBOUND traffic
is WORSE THAN USELESS if there is already a firewall in the router.

[1]  Of all the "software firewalls", Microsoft's <deep scorn>
is the **ONLY** one that doesn't sniff outgoing packets.

yup, my ZA is still version 2.6.231, and I've never had a 
problem with it.

This *does* refer to apps running under Linux--however
for those running Windoze and for whom *cost* is a concern:

For many years, I have thought
McAfee is more trouble than it is worth.
(It's low effectivity rating in the article underscores this.)

More recently, Norton (though *effective*)
has IMO also become a PITA.

It is worth noting that a payware AV that **always** gets high marks
wasn't included in this "study":

RE: MacaFee doesn't support Seamonkey
     There is an additional product called E-Scan which I find is 
perfectly compatible with Seamonkey, and is available for both Windows 
and Linux!

Print from SeaMonkey on Linux doesn't recognize duplex support for my printer
I'm running SeaMonkey 1.1.4 on Linux (CentOS 4.5, equivalent to RHEL 4.5) and have an HP LaserJet 4si printer accessed via TCP/IP. I'm using the CUPS printing drivers (cups version 1.1.22, which is the most current for this OS). When I print to this printer using Adobe Acrobat Reader, I am able to specify that the print job should use the printer's Duplex mode.
