Netscape 7.0 Profile Problem

Hi,

I use NS 7.0 on my workstation. And all of my mails are stored in my home directory under the following locaation

"/home/kss/.mozilla/karthik/4tmu66ag.slt/Mail/Local Folders"

When I restarted NS7.0 this morning it asked me to create a new profile and started storing the mails under,

"/home/kss/.mozilla/karthik/4tmu66ag.slt/Mail/Local Folders1"

Since I am unable to access my mails I restarted Netscape but again in created a new folder. I also tried manually pointing the original "Local Folders" where I have all my mails from the account settings but upon restart of Netscape the same problem repeats. I also tried moving "/home/kss/.mozilla" and "/home/kss/.netscape" to a different location but with no success.

What could be the problem. Pl. help.

Thanks

Re: Netscape 7.0 Profile Problem

Have you another proccess running netscape?

Check it out with ps -ef | grep nets. If so, kill it and restart netscape. When netscape detects another netscape running, it asks for another profile location.

Linux?. Yes, of course.

Re: Netscape 7.0 Profile Problem

Hi Karthik,

Try 2 more things.

1.- Check if you have enough disk space.

2.- Try to delete the files,
liprefs.js and preferences.js from your .netscape directory (backup first the files), and run the netscape again.

HTH
Frank.


Linux?. Yes, of course.

Hi Frank,

You are right. The user's Home Directory was mounted from a NetApp storage and was exceeded the quota limit. After increasing the quota it started working fine.

FYI - you should know that Netscape 7.0 is no longer the preferred or supported browser on HP-UX.

Mozilla 1.2.1 is currently being delivered and Mozilla 1.4 is in the works.

Similar to Netscape 7.0, it has more features is based on a later code-stream.
