netscape barfs on mailto URLS
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:11:06 EDT
in addition to the worsed stability w.r.t. java after
upgrading to RH 6.1, clicking on a mailto URL causes
netscape to lock up and spin its wheels:
lothar> rpm -qa | grep netscape
lothar> chkfontpath --list
Current directories in font path:
every mailto i've tried does the same thing and i have to go
and kill -9 the netscape process by hand.
my machine is an AMD K6-2 300 with 256 MB of RAM that was
upgraded from 6.0 to 6.1.
oh my god, am i stupid. i tried a mailto on my work machine and it
worked fine. turned out to be a problem with my .signature file on my
home machine (it's a pipe and no program was attached to it). i'll go
crawl under a rock now.......
