Hi, thanks for helping me get Mozilla up and running ! I managed to
'untar' it successfully but could never quite get past that step. I then
downloaded the 0.7-10 rpm ... and it seemed to vanish somewhere. I
switched from Gnome to KDE, configured it to large Lucidabright with the
desert-red theme and when I looked at the menu ... there it was. It had
installed itself and sat there growling softly. Was I anthropomorphising ?
The browser works fine (so far), but none of the popular themes have
installed and I keep getting error messages on the Bash terminal:
eg. 'BeginDragThreadTree is not defined'
'we don't handle eBorderStyle_close yet...please fix me' and
I really like the Mail composer; I wrote a long letter to my brother in
Germany including colours and accents but when it reached the lower
border the whole thing crashed and I lost it all. The bash terminal
showed a 'Segmentation problem'. The RHS slider had indicated that I had
space left, and anyway, I was not aware that there may be restrictions.
My test messages arrived successfully but I cannot access new messages
on the server. It is not clear to me where the 'get new messages'
function is. When I use Search -> Search Mail/News Messages I get a
dialog box with its right side - containing the 'search' button -
off-screen and unable to be moved. I may also have a configuration
problem with my full name rather than my user name popping up in
'Mail/News Account Settings'.
Apart from all of that, it is a great program. Jeff was right ... "
pointing frantically at Mozilla" .
