Mozilla browser not comming up

Hello there, I just installed RHEL 3 on my laptop, which was successful (as usual). But, this time around I couldn't get the Mozilla Browser to run, (when I launched it, a blank window appears).

I would appreciate a solution to this problem, which may not cost me re-installing this operating system again.

Does that mean that you get a frame with nothing in it (no skin; no menus; no icons; etc.)?

Or does that mean you get a frame with skin, menus, icons, but the window that would display a web page is blank?

If the former, try re-installing. If the latter, edit the preferences to specify a home page. Then click on Home to see what happens.

You could also try starting Moz from the command line and watch for error messages that might give a clue to what is going on.
