Also make sure that the environment variable MOZILLA_HOME is set to

Do the following and send me the output via personal email (do not mail
the mailing list) -
$ strace /usr/local/netscape/netscape
One thing you could try is moving the ~/.netscape directory out of the
way and starting communicator again. If it starts fine, you can slowly
start moving files from your old ~/.netscape to your new ~/.netscape one
by one and see when the seg fault starts happening.
