I made a similar post two days ago, and was told:

1) Netscape is still a piece of poop.

2) Libc5 version works a little better than libc6.

3) Netscape 3.x does not have the problems associated with Netscape 4.x.  Use 
Netscape 3.x whenever you do not need the added functionality of Netscape 4.x.

4) Disable java and javascript except for when you absolutely must have it.

Also I would like to add that we should do whatever we can to support and help 
with projects such as amaya in order to free ourselves from the Netscape 
problems and the Netscape/aol/Time-warner corporate monster.
