RE: browsing local documents with Netscape 4.73

It sounds like it is checking for a new version of Netscape.  I'm afraid I
don't use Netscape, so I can't tell you where you can turn that setting off,
but I think that is the most likely cause.

I've had it happen in the past and don't recall what I did to fix it. But,
it seems to happen whenever it wants when a version is installed new from
either rpm or tarball.

I also noticed (I use icewm and it has a little network status area) that
netscape _always_ tries to contact the netscape site no matter what the
settings are. Each and every time I bring it up, I can see it send
something out to someone (I once tracked it to netscape) in a short burst,
then stops and sends no more the entire session.

That's another good reason I can't wait for opera to get released. I don't
think it's netscape's or m$n'$ or anybody else's business when I go online.
