netscape problem

Since I got a new computer, ( WINXP) I can't access the messages on the COMMUNITY FORUM. When I click on a message the next screen comes up with nothing on it. While it's loading, I can see something about javascript error in the line under the page. It goes by so fast that I can't read it all. This problem comes up using Netscape 4.72 which I used on my old computer without a problem. Any ideas?

Some thoughts.....
Is 4.72 compatible with XP? Released in 2000.
Is java enabled in preferences?
Is JIT set properly in preferences?

Is this the only site where this is a problem?

7.1 is the new one for Windows XP.

Hope this helps.

Netscape 4,72 works properly with Windows XP, but is quite outdated.

Netscape 7.1 is the latest and greatest version, and it will run on your older machine, or your newer machine.

One of two things is happening. Your Netscape installation got messed up, or the web page you want (COMMUNITY FORUM) is doing something that the older version of Netscape does not understand.

Since you have a newer computer, I would go with the newer version of Netscape. Or use Internet Explorer, Opera, or the Mozilla browser (which is just Netscape without saying so).

Thanks for the tips guys. All of the settings are correct and this is the only site affected. Guess I'll have to try Netscape 7.1 and see if that helps.
