Netscape Freezing After 3-4 Links

When Netscape freezes up while following links, the cause is usually a
corrupted History file. Manually deleting NETSCAPE.HST should solve the

I suspect that when NETSCAPE.HST reaches a certain size, say over 300K, it
becomes prone to corruption. In order to prevent the problem in the future,
you might limit the number of days that Netscape retains links to 1 or 2.

Hope this helps.
