Well from my experience you can have even say mozilla 1.7.10 and seamonkey 1.0.4 installed in two different directories ( /usr/local/mozilla & /usr/local/seamonkey ) they will nicely share the same stuff under the ~/.mozilla and they will both work like a charm without any sign of conflict .
Same experience here. Netscape also shared the ~/.mozilla directory without destroying anything from one browser to another in the family of browsers.
This much i have found . First of i tried to download the *.tar.bz2 file and then build the *.rpm but that scenario failled . Later i tried to install seamonkey with "yum install seamonkey" it downloaded the thing from download.fedora.redhat.com , then it installed it but popped out the error messages in the attached file . Other than that if you get this email then it means that the rpm installed seamonkey works . Indeed as you described things the errors stated in the attached file are coming from SELinux .
The 255 error is a common SELinux problem that I experienced in development to a large degree. I usually apply updates only after putting SELinux into permissive mode before proceeding with upgrades. with the 255 error, it usually leaves two versions of a program within the rpm database.
Well i became quite used to seamonkey/mozilla name it whatever ( the full suite ) so am not using firefox and thunderbird . Even if the Fedora Development team drops mozilla i will still continue to download the installer version and install it for as long as it exists .
Either with rpm packaged versions or with the installer version, I prefer the suite over firefox/thunderbird. Unless some better browser/mailer/HTML editor suiter comes along, so will I.
I see below that there was an FC4 version that you installed. I was not sure if a version in rpm packaging was made for the version of Fedora.
