Netscape 4.61 Problem with Desktop ...

Post by Brett Watt » Thu, 15 Jul 1999 04:00:00

Help if you can ....

I installed Netscape 4.6.1 on our RS/6000 running AIX 4.3.2 which overwrote

the Netscape 4.08 that came on the Bonus CD.  I put the MOZILLA_HOME
statement in the users startup files.  Then (with the help of this
newsgroup) got the printing working by moving libc.a to a directory in the
netscape directory.

However, I can not launch netscape from the desktop.  As either netscape
itself from the Application Manger or as the Base Library or as the
Documentation Search Service.  But, if I start netscape to run in
background from a dtterm window then try to start netscape in any of the
ways listed above ... THEY START!

What am I missing.  Anyone have any ideas.  Do I need to reinstall the
Docsearch.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance for any

1. Netscape 4.61 on Mandrake 6-Netscape crashes when site login box appears

    I've updated to Netscape 4.61 using an RPM from the Mandrake
website. 4.61 is surposed to be stable where 4.6 was not. When I'm using
Netscape 4.61 on Mandrake Linux 6 all is fine up until the point where a
web site requires a login and password. A box appears asking for this
information. Data is able to be entered but when I click on the "OK"
button, Netscape crashes. It seems not to like to login/password box on
any web site I've visited.

    Is anyone else experiencing this bug using Mandrake 6? Better still,
does anyone know a work around?
