Thanks for that. I found on:
https://docs.kde.org/index.php?language=en&package=applications

Try this one instead:
gmane.comp.kde.devel.kwrite

F1 key works fine for me & links to:
https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/applications/kate/index.html
Set Firefox or similar as your default browser and see if it reacts the
same.

> If so, where to report?

I suspect that it is related to your distro/SeaMonkey setup. I am using
Ubuntu 16.04
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:
core-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-amd64:core-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-noarch:security-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-amd64:security-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-noarch
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release:	16.04
Codename:	xenial
$ echo $GDMSESSION
gnome-flashback-metacity

Again, try setting Firefox as your default browser & then see if you
still get a blank browser window with F1.
