Re: Netscape 4.05

I did restart Netscape after removing libnullplugin.so.
I didn't have to stop it, because it had already crashed  :)
The problem persists.  Do I need any special libraries (-dev)?

I will make the change regarding LD_PRELOAD this evening
when I get home from work.

Thanks for the help.  I greatly appreciate this list.
