IntroductionThis Introduction to Mozilla is both a tutorial for, and overview of, key features of the Mozilla suite. This overview is intended primarily for first time users of Mozilla in a corporate, educational, or enterprise environment. The emphasis in this introduction is on the Navigator (browser), Mail, and Address Book components of the suite. This overview is based on Mozilla 1.5, but is also applicable to later versions.
Important: Mozilla is a powerful, feature rich suite of products; this introduction does not cover all of the features and capabilities of Mozilla. However, it will introduce you to many of the features which make Mozilla such a powerful and useful tool, and enable you to use and enjoy this product as quickly as possible.
IllustrationsThe Mozilla browser window illustrations in this guide have been reduced from full-screen windows to enable them to better fit the page. For this reason, the windows will look more cramped and cluttered than in actual use (where you are more likely to use a full screen window).
AppearanceMozilla allows the user to choose the appearance of the browser by selecting his or her own theme. The theme used for illustrations in this manual is the Classic theme.
Menu ConventionsMenu selections are shown in italics. When you are required to select a menu, and then select choices from that menu or subsequent sub-menus, this will be shown as follows:

- Select the Edit menu
