I assume by "Mozilla" you mean the "Mozilla Suite". Firefox and Thunderbird split off from the Suite some time ago to become independent projects. About a year ago, I think, the Mozilla Foundation officially dropped support and development for the Mozilla Suite and decided to concentrate their efforts on Firefox and Thunderbird development. Some independent programmers decided to pick up development of the Suite on their own and continute work on it. It was renamed "Seamonkey". Under the hood Seamonkey and Firefox are very similar. They use a lot of the same code and the same web page rendering engine.
