Angry I hate Mozilla


For some reason, whenever I start Mozilla from my user account, it loads the page then immediately quits. It only hapens from the second time I login on my user account to whenever I change my password and then the vicious cycle starts again. I'm on Red Hat Linux 8.0. Some help here?

If it works for other users, it looks like a configuration problem. You can delete your current Mozilla configuration - delete .mozilla directory in your home dir. But if it's similar for other users, get a new version from www.mozilla.org (1.3 or 1.4 alpha).

It'd be even faster if it wasn't for the banner ads embedded on the toolbar.

Mozilla.

I used to use Mozilla but I found it a bit sluggish. Since then I have switched to Phoenix which is a cut-down version of Mozilla. Its fast like Opera(without the banner) and doesn't have all the extras, that I have no use for, that Mozilla had.

I found galeon a lot more sluggish than phoenix. personal results may vary. For phoenix, I strongly recommend d/l one of the daily builds over the official release (and I find hardly any stability issues in the nightly build- there have been some occasions, but usually it would be fixed very quickly)

Phoenix is the way to go, and Mozilla agrees. Mozilla is adopting Phoenix as the next official version of Mozilla. They will quit all their extra apps and just focus on developing Phoenix from now on. Maybe it was my daily emails that convinced them,maybe not.

hehe Were you harassing the good people of Mozilla.org? What did you tell them? I love phoenix and I never would have used it had I not read an article about it in a Linux magazine. Its a great browser.

if you don't develop phoenix, I will unleash on the net the whole truth about mozilla and its Make file, and how it can be compiled without all the junk...

Extortionists.

Nah, seriously - I just like Mozilla and Phoenix. If all browsers cost money, I'd understand Opera charging but I'd still buy Mozilla. But almost all browsers don't cost money and so it just blows my mind.

Mozilla for power; Phoenix for speed; Lynx for text.
