Description Kurt Ludwig 2000-07-18 14:25:42 EDT
if you try to start netscape with a '&' behind it (backgrounding it and 
freeing your terminal) it comes back w/ 'exit 255 netscape'

running the same command minus the '&' results in a running (though still 
frequently crashing) netscape

this is in gnome

Matt, does this happen on your system?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2000-08-31 19:47:23 EDT
no, but mv .netscape netscape-old and see if it helps.  I think there is a new
bug that is making preferences.js kill everything.

This should be fixed in the next rawhide release (4.75-2, IIRC.)
