To me, crashing every few minutes is not normal, not even for Netscape.
But is does crash with a bus error sometimes when I close one of its
windows. I understand this was caused by the egcs bug mentioned above.
Will ths be solved anytime soon?
Another thing to crash Netscape: Java applets. With Java support turned
off, Netscape is quite reliable for me. Turning Java on will cause
Netscape to crash on any page containing a Java applet, though. Is this
also caused by the egcs bug?
I am running Navigator 4.6 on potato, BTW.
