Description Chris Evans 1999-05-16 22:23:54 UTC

When I launch netscape, it no longer goes to the default
file on the disk, saying "welcome to redhat". Instead it
tried to go to

This is a waste of bandwidth and looks very ugly if it fails
due to not being connected to the net.

I wouldn't normally bother to log this but as you have a
serious netscape Java bug, and Netscape 4.6 is out, I'll log
this hoping for an update :-)

Do you have a home page specified in your netscape
preferences? If so, it will go there instead...
