Look at the RedHat web page. They have faqs on various problems,
which are a bit tricky to find, but you should be able to figure
out where they are. The one on netscape suggests several
solutions to this problem. The first is to use the program
to see if the 75dpi fonts (not 75dpi unscaled) are listed.
If they aren't, then us chkfontpath --add to add them. They
give detailed instructions about his.
The second is to look at your .mailcap file. If it contains
a certain line about java, you are supposed to delete it.
Finally, not mentioned in the faq, you may want to add the
approriate MOZILLA_HOME environmental variable. (That is
recommended somewhere on netscape's web page, but it almost
certainly is irrelevant).
One of these measures may or may not solve your problem.
Thus, there seems to be some memory leak involving java
which persists in all versions we've tried, (with the
above fixes in place). Once one runs java, netscape seems
to use more and more memory until it hangs. You can then kill
netscape and start it again.
We would dearly like to know what is causing this problem and
what if anything we can do to resolve it.
