Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Netscape has made changes to its installer with this release so the installer attempts to connect to a setup page after installation. If you have more than one version of Netscape on your computer, the installer may launch the wrong one, possibly corrupting preference files or causing other potentially serious problems. I recommend connecting to these pages manually after installation is complete. [GD]
