I am running gnome desktop.
when i start netscape from icons or command or button. many
times i loose the keyboard, the mouse still works for links
but you cannot enter a URL or enter on a web page. I just
keep starting it over and over and after 4-5 times it works.

when the keyboard is gone, i can change windows and it works
on other stuff.
Also, on some web pages, netscape just disappears and system
returns to desktop. no particular www page.

We've never seen this here ; are you using
click-to-focus; focus-follows-mouse, or...?

You might turn off Java and Javascript (independently) and see if
either one of them is correlated with this bug.
