Netscape stalls whenever I browse the internet. I cannot get it back
without killing it, which is no point as it still stalls. This is not a
DNS problem! I have to boot windows to browse the Internet!
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start the ppp to get onto the internet
3.enter any URL including www.redhat.com
Actual Results: The browser started to load the page at a dismal 10 bytes
throughput and then it froze and never recovered!
Expected Results: The browser displays the page and keeps on working
My computer has dual PIII 500Mhz cpu's with 384Mb ram and a NVidia TNT2
with 32Mb ram running Red Hat 7.0
There is very little we can do about problems inside netscape's code, as we
don't have access to it.
You can try reporting this to netscape at:
or possibly try using a different browser like Mozilla or Konqueror.
I am now not so sure that it is a Netscape problem. It seems that whenever I
do anything throuhg the PPP connection that involves moving large amounts of
data I get a freeze on the PPP connection. The only thing that I can do to get
around this is to kill pppd and restart the connection.
