Question Netscape 6.2.1 My Sidebar


I can't seem to get my side bar working...unless I run it as root I would prefer not runningjavascript:smilie('') X as root. And running su from a term to start it defeats the purpose of a GUI.javascript:smilie('')

I've tried changing ownership of the /usr/local/netscape directory recursivley and various permissions to no avail. Any Ideas??
The sidebar works if I start netscape from a term as root..
but not as user.

RH 7.2 on P4 1.5 w/768 RAM 20G dedicated drive.

thanx in advance

maybe there is some old .netscape files around in the users folder


Have you tried deleting the .netscape folder

run netscape in the foreground of an xterm and see what kind of errors you are getting.

I had the same problem. Remove the .mozilla files and you should be fine.
