1st ctrl-alt-F2. You'll be in terminal. Login then cd to your home directory. Remove the following directory:

rm -rf .gnome* .gconf* .metacity .nautilus

Then go back to gui by ctrl-alt-F7 then ctrl-alt-backspace to restart gui. It will reset everything (gnome) to default setting.

*I assume that your runlevel in inittab is 5.

I would rather say to upgrade to a latest version of mozilla. Or use other program like sylpheed for writing e-mail. But mozilla crash really a big problem.

Yes... you don't say what distribution you're using, but most of them install a much-older-than-current version of Mozilla, and many of the older versions were heavily subject to random crashing.

An upgrade is probably in order.

sibu_rajappan,

Just my , but I use Firefox for web browsing and Thunderbird for email. They are both lean and mean.

Thunderbird has excellent spam control filters and both allow extensions to be installed for customizing the look, feel and behaviour.

It's well worth a look.
