    Netscape 4.7 dies occasionally

    Sometimes on my home PC, Netscape just seems to die. The symptoms are: The mouse-over on links fail and the left click does not work. You can however successfully open the link by right clicking and open in new window. Is this a common issue?

    Re: Netscape 4.7 dies occasionally

    my netscape seems to 'die,' I find that if I wait 3 minutes or so, it will eventually respond to my commands... I have TONS of junk loaded on my PC, (per my IT dept...) I'm sure that's the culprit.

    Hope this helps!

    I have that happen with Netscape, IE, & Express Browser. I think sometimes the program is either doing something or the internet seems to freeze. Doesn't take 3 minutes though (but I close it down & restart if I have to wait more than 45 seconds. Impatient, I guess[img]/w3timages/icons/aflame.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/aflame.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/aflame.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/nuts.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/nuts.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/nuts.gif[/img]

    Have you tried "Reload" when the symptom appears?

    Re: Netscape 4.7 dies occasionally

    Happens to me all the time. But I know it's my own impatience that's the culprit. I open several windows and they're all trying to load... then I decide that one isn't going fast enough and hit back, then close... I think what happens is I have too many routines and even though (or maybe because) I interrupt them they suck the resources. I end up having to End Task and eventually reboot.

    I see I'm in good company.[img]/w3timages/icons/yep.gif[/img]

    However, to reduce the number of times you crash, you can just hit Esc while a window is active to stop the loading. Then you can reload. I don't know what it is but sometimes that little wave on the status bar keeps going back & forth forever. It I hit Esc & reload, sometimes it comes up right away.

    Yeah, it also happens to IE users. Something looks funny/does not work. "Stop/Refresh" or just "Refresh" and continue. Not sure if it happens more frequently in NS as I am primarily an IE user.

    I like IE Too.. Chalk it up to Windows Error, I didn't realize it was such a common symptom...
