Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

 
 

Netscape Navigator 3.0 and Older Macs

Send Article to a Friend

Netscape Navigator 3.0 and Older Macs -- Netscape has discovered a problem with Navigator 3.0 on Macs with the so-called "dirty" ROMs and more than 8 MB of RAM installed. Machines possibly affected include the Mac II, SE/30, IIcx, and IIx. The problem isn't subtle - a system error on launch, but the solution is fairly simple. If you turn on Apple's Virtual Memory or install Connectix's RAM Doubler before launching, the problem won't appear. An alternate fix is to upgrade to the beta of the week from Netscape, 3.01.b1, which is either 3.7 MB or 5.1 MB in size. [ACE]
