I had no problems viewing the virtual tour with
Netscape 4.73. When I upgraded to 4.74, I no longer
can see the virtual tour. I can only see the ipix
java logo and "failed to load image" message under
the logo.

Also, I was able to visit with Netscape
4.73 and 4.74 without any problems.

I have been switching back and forth from 4.73 to
4.74 for the past two days. I have been
experiencing Netscape 4.74 randomly closing out on
me, and my bookmarks got wiped out a couple of
I have been switching back and forth to check to

buggy version that came with SuSE 6.4 (Netscape
4.72) to version 4.74, the same problems I had

I don't have Blackdown. I'm running SuSE 6.4 with
kernel 2.2.16. and I'm about to do away with
Netscape like I did with that other annoying crappy
app called windows.

just my -.02 cents worth - hope it makes sense,
