First of all, it's a bad idea to run anything as root unless you absolutely
need to. Do yourself a favor and create/use a user account. This will
protect you both from those oopsies. It will also help protect you from
various security vulnerabilities both known and yet-to-be-discovered. For
example: if a user finds a way to execute a command of their choosing, and
you're logged in as a regular user, that would be bad, but if you're logged
in as root, it would be much worse. So much for the sermon.
As for netscape, are you sure that there isn't a stray copy of it still
running somewhere on your computer. Netscape is bad about that. Try:
ps -aux | grep netscape
Happy Computing with Linux!
