Upgrade to a modern distro then install mozilla-firefox you will be much happier since netscape on UNIX and Linux has always sucked.

That sounds familiar. That might be related to a setting in the so-called 'kicker' thing that usually shows up in the task bar near the clock.

It's klipper, not kicker.

edit: Right click on the little K clipboard and deselect "Enable Actions"
