Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 43999
netscape 4.77-1 segment faults on www.redhat.com

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-7.0.1 alpha)
Description of problem:
When loading http://www.redhat.com, netscape 4.77-1 does
a segmentation fault. This is on a UP2000-based Alpha
machine running 7.0. I'm told it's a general problem, and
that disabling Java-script is a workaround.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. invoke netscape (4.77-1)
2. attempt to view http://www.redhat.com
Actual Results: Segmentation fault
Expected Results: The page should come into view.
For the convenience of customers, it might not be a bad idea to change
the web site coding back to something that works with the current (and
recent former) distribution(s).
Assigning to the web site, then.
We really can't do anything about Netscape crashing - we don't have
the source code.
This problem still exists with a clean, new RH7.1 installation.
Fortunately, with 7.1, there's another browser (even if it's a
non-production-worthy toy) that can display the page.
