So given I can't view the first topic of any message, is it time to use IE, or is there a fix on the way? 4.7x is old and does not support some HTML features, but gosh darn it, I LIKE IT!

You could update to the newer version of Netscape, but there are bugs in the newer versions. During AOL/Netscape takeover, alot of the old Netscape programmers got laid-off, the newer browser versions are a brand new product. I believe there was a thread about the bugs and problems regarding the new Netscape somewhere on this board. I think Microsoft's IE is probably the only game in town at the moment. I keep Netscape 4.7 around, but don't use it anymore as it doesn't display some pages correctly anymore.

Netscape 4.x is a bastard to work with, even for things as simple as javascript menus. It is definitely time to upgrade to either IE 6 or netscape 6. Do it and make the job easier for web developers everywhere. Thanks. [:D]

I would suggest that you give [url=http://www.mozilla.org]Mozilla[/url] a try. It has a very similar interface to Netscape, yet is still being maintained and updated with the latest features.

I just installed Netscape 6.2 this weekend after I got my cable broadband installed. Just in time for the site upgrade. So far I have not had any problems with the AR15.com or anything else. Suggest you give it a try.

I'm using 4.7x and it seems to work now. It didn't work earlier in the week, but works OK now. Did things change?

I am using Netscape 6.1 and no problems. It has occasionally crashed but it hasn't been too often and mainly if I have lots of windows open. I don't know if which OS you're using will make a difference or not. I'm using Mac OS-X 10.1.5 and it may act differently under Windows 200/XP/?? Netscape has a beta version of 7 available. I'm feeling kinda bold and may try it, if I do i'll let you know if its better.
