Re: Netscape Communicator 4.5 & Java Applets
Actually, I have the same problem, though in Windows. Netscape only
crashes for me when I have another program open at the same time, Richwin,
AND when it encounters applets. It's very strange. My emails to netscape
also revealed no answers. It's really quite strange.
