Mozilla / Netscape Freeze or Lock-up
Got my system almost perfect, however there is one nagging annoyance.
Mozilla (9.9.9, 1.0, and now 1.1b) and Netscape 6.2.x freeze or lock up intermittently. I am hoping someone can recommend a method of troubleshooting this problem so that I may continue tracking down a solution.
I have searched Google, Redhat, and Mozilla pages for comments on this type of problem to no avail.
Here are the particulars:
Redhat 7.3, KDE 3.0.0, Athlon 900, Radeon 7500
Mozilla and/or Nescape just freeze.
Sometimes it only lasts a few seconds, sometimes it takes up to 15 minutes or more. Seems to happen halfway through loading new pages, but sometimes it occurs while a pages are fully loaded and I'm scrolling through it.
When it is not "stuck" it works just fine- not other apparent problems.
I can tell it is locked up because the "M" in the corner becomes static.
I have a cable modem and other browsers do not seem to have this problem (even MSIE through wine), so I don't think it is an issue of receiving the web pages.
Seems like a memory, problem, process conflict, or maybe a video thing. But what do I know?
I can resize and minimize the window. Closing it doesn't work.
I either have to kill the process or go get a cup of coffee and hope it fixes itself.
Seems to happen on approximately 20% of the web pages I go to.
I have installed it in /usr/lib and /usr/local and it seems to have no effect on the behavior.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this problem.
