that's never happened to me (it's Netscape 4.61 actually);
i have  384 MB  memory (was 128) & a  466 MHz  processor,
in case the problem is inadequate hardware (tho' that's unlikely for you).
i haven't tried Mozilla, but it may be included with Mandrake 8.0 ,
which i will be installing in the near future.  IE is a good browser,
but of course M$ won't make it available for any other platform.
Konqueror should be included with Mandrake 8.0 too.
