Problems with Netscape 7.1


Hello, I just installed Netscape 7.1, but I am having a problem. Everytime I try to create a new instance of Netscape (I have a webpage going, but I double click on an .html file on my drive) I get a profile manager window that pops up, and I hit "Start Netscape", but it errors out because the profile is already in use....any solutions?

Thanks

look in the .mozilla/default/... directory or the equivalent netscape one there is a file called lock (at least for mozilla). See if deleting this and starting netscape again solves the problem.

Actually not sure if this is you problem

I wrote a script for thi

save the below script in say /usr/bin directory as netscape. chmod it to 755 and point the netscape button on the panel to this script. Note that my netscape browser is installed in /usr/local/netscape. Works fine for me and I can as many browsers as I want without going through profile manager box.

good luck!

#!/bin/sh

if /usr/local/netscape/netscape -remote "ping()" 2>/dev/null
then
# Uncomment one of the following lines according to the desired behavior:
# - replace the current page
#location=""
# - open in new window
location=",new-window"
# - open in new tab
#location=",new-tab"
exec /usr/local/netscape/netscape -remote "openURL($1$location)"
else
exec /usr/local/netscape/netscape "$@"
fi
exit 1
