Netscape problems

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 21 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

If you are using Netscape to view this site, you may notice a few quirks here and there. Netscape 4 doesn’t support Web standards and so you’ll get the ugly version of the site if you use it. The upgrade to Netscape 6, which is standards-compliant, is free.

If you are using Netscape 6 already, this site should look normal, although you’ll see some odd behavior on my news pages. I’m working on clearing that up.

I think it is true that netscape is not initializing mail account details so one would sign up for support. There can be no reason, that I am aware, that the details one has used for more than 10 years would not work. This is netscape 7.2.

I'm trying to fix a netscape problem that just occured with a friend of mine. Whenever he opens up Netscape, the home page is always off the page to the left, and you cannot scroll far enough left to see the whole page. Scrolling to the right works ok. This also happens when he enters a site that he uses often. Why would the front page go off the left side of the browser? I'm not sure if this happens when he links to a site or not, but I'm guessing that it will do the same thing. Can you help? Thanks, Mike

Dear Sirs, I have the same problem that was reported by Michael Semb. I did not see a response or solution posted to his query. What is the answer or how do I find one. Much appreciated. Thanks

Uhhh.... I'd start by maybe asking Netscape about it. This isn't a Netscape support forum, it's my personal blog.

When I click on the netscape icon the window ask to restore last session or new. After choosing the netscape window does not come up.
