Firefox started off as a cure to a very real problem with the suite, no
overall vision. Everything but the kitchensink was getting stuffed into
it. It started with a small team of people who wouldn't even accept
patches from outsiders, and it hasn't progressed far enough beyond that
creating an entirely different set of problems.
Firefox's extension model is a good answer to the problem that Seamonkey
had with too many other things getting added to the three core
applications. A new Seamonkey should just be the Browser, Mail, and
Composer applications with much of the rest as extensions.
