Description of problem:
given that not all sites support mozilla (some don't even let you access them if
you don't use netscape 4.x or IE--e.g. citibank australia internet banking).
also some java applets (for example various web tools on cisco's internal web
site) only work with the old built-in java in netscape.
so, i think it's a mistake to completely remove netscape 4.7x. i think you
should consider just installing netscape-navigator.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Meanwhile ask them to conform to standards as described at
I've got the same problem with a bank here which requires IE, but now they are
working on fixing it.
Also try the competition.
This would be the long-term solution, not sticking to netscape 4.x
Netscape has been marked deprecated since 7.1. Its time has come. If you need
it, the 7.3 packages should still work on the beta.
I'm asking for netscape 4.x too. The problem is with mozilla that it is really
slow on older hardware. Netscape 4.x is still much faster and usable there.
Please don't forget all those people with older hardware.
