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]
