(Sorry - this is logged against RHL7.3 as "limbo" is not available as an option 
in non-javascript bug-report)

Description of Problem:
Ability to save bookmarks, etc, to central server removed (roaming profile) 
as Netscape is no longer provided. I used this with an LDAP server (but 
httpd servers such as apache were also an alternative).

This is a _very_ useful facility for corporations (for those that use 
Netscape-type browsers), as well as roaming end-users :)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
Netscape 4.x allowed "roaming profiles" - the ability to save bookmarks, 
history, etc, to an LDAP or web server. Whilst Netscape 4.x is clearly rather 
long-in-the-tooth, mozilla-based browsers don't yet offer this functionality. 
There has been some discussion in mozilla's bugzilla (from when I last looked 
a few months ago). I thought it may be pertinant to raise the issue here, as 
you are now removing netscape from RHL :)

If this gets fixed upstream, we'll include it.  It's not going to get fixed here.
