Is it possible to achieve the same effect utilising a customised version of PrefBar?

Sadly, SM team have limited resources and, according to meeting notes, nobody even working on porting Private Browsing...

What's the difference with a 'private browsing mode' & just denying cookies & then clearing everything (cookies, history etc) afterwards? I never really use private browsing so it's never been an issue for me.

You will likely not see a "private tab" in SeaMonkey or Firefox as it requires total process separation, which is a project that Mozilla abandoned after 3 years.

You *can* get two copies of the same website running in SeaMonkey by using the Profile Manager and creating a second profile that loads with the -no-remote flag:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Little to nothing except it does everything in one step and restores your settings afterwards. Also, cookie exceptions are not recorded so your boss cannot look at Tool--> Options --> Privacy and note that you don't accept redtube's cookies.

Since SeaMonkey shares the sessions across tabs i cannot connect to the other server unless i clear my session through (Edit==>Preferences==>Privacy & security)

@patrickjdempsey - looked at that page which has details about profile management but i am not able to locate the text about setting flags.I am ignorant as to ways of passing params to SeaMonkey :-)

I don't know anything about how shortcuts work in Linux world, but the idea is that you create a new shortcut to load the second profile. So if your original shortcut is this:

...\seamonkey.exe

to load the profile manager you copy that shortcut and modify it like this:

...\seamonkey.exe -p -no-remote

then once you have the new profile setup, you add it's name to the end:

...\seamonkey.exe -p -no-remote newprofilename
