netscape 4 aweful, now 3 won't reinstall



When netscape 3 crashed a couple of times, i figured I'd try 4.  Which turned 
out to lack the two things that I've disliked in other browsers:  turning 
autoloading of images on/off is a preference rather than a menu item, and the 
alt-number to go back a page or two is gone.  Not to mentions some senseless 
defaults--it tried to turn my default file to a file, and added spaces in the 
process.

So I removed it, but now I can't reinstall 3:

root@eyry:/home/hawk# dpkg -i /home/hawk/netscape3_3.01-11.deb 
(Reading database ... 23545 files and directories currently installed.)

help!
