When I was first introduced to the www many, many moons ago, I learned to surf with Netscape’s Navigator. Every time there was an upgrade, I would download it. However, since version 4.0, I have had problems with the mail program in Netscape Communicator. After a while, if I would highlight an e-mail message that I have already read, I get “Netscape has caused a general page fault” or something to that affect flashed on the screen and the program closes. I can not even delete the offending e-mail before it closes down! It has occurred in every version from 4.0 to 4.5 (I have not loaded 4.7 yet). Netscape says I should delete some files and therefore loses several e-mails I am saving and I have done this twice but the problem pops up again and again.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is it my PC? I currently have a Gateway Solo with Win98 (and it occurred on an IBM-clone with Win95). So, I have IE 4.0 and Gateway pre-loads Netscape. Sorry, Mac and Linux users, I must go PC due to work obligations. Macs are nice. I have used one for a short while. It just chaffs my arse that I should have to surrender to Gates all of my web browsing needs. Must we bow, yield, kneel and use nothing but IE and Outlook Express in Win 98? What are YOUR thoughts? What do you use to surf the www?
