Shouldn't I click the updater instead, there being a lot more than just a binary (no instructions)?
Instructions come from the same place as the .bz2: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/seamonkey/releases/2.53.7/linux-x86_64/en-US/
You have the latest version AFAIK, so there would be nothing for the updater to do, besides read the instructions. Maybe read https://blog.seamonkey-project.org/ and/or http://www.wg9s.com/comm-253/ too.
