I've noticed this as well, probably over the past two-three months.

I have java/javascript *dis*abled.

Frequently, crashes occur:

   - When resizing windows.
   - When moving windows.
   - When focusing windows.
   - When editing bookmarks.
   - When following links.

Though I was typically getting a number of days out of a session, it had
been dropping to a matter of minutes -- sometimes only a few, usually 30
minutes to an hour or more of browsing.

I've noticed that Netscape is sensitive to system library updates, which
isn't terribly surprising, though it's quite frustrating.
