Re: Netscape crashing -- a lot.

Oops, sorry everyone, I messed up.

I have tried deleting my ~/.netscape/cookie file, but it reappeared a while
later, just like the original.  Where did it get that info from?

I have had the problem in Netscape Mail before, where you collapse the
toolbars, but they won't un-collapse.  Deleting the ~/.netscape folder fixed
that, though, until the next time.  So, I've learnt NOT to touch the toolbars.

I am also learning to NOT close windows, but either re-use them or minimize
them for later use.

I'm running potato with all the latests libraries, etc, but even with slink and
different versions of Communicator I have had the same problem.

<scratching head>  I faintly recall Netscape crashing without clicking and
exit/close button.
