I had complained about some aspects of Java not working on my machine...

Yep, and given how long they take to get drawn, I'm presuming

Hmmmm, I wonder what would happen if I were to attempt to revert back
to an earlir Netscape version, I've may have a few of those around.

I may try those, though mozilla, at least any earlier releases, I
could routinely crash so I stopped using it.
Thanks for raising my knowledge base at least a little.
Here is another question for you. Netscape composer has "special
functions" including one to draw a special popup window that allows
you to insert the "special" HTML characters (© & times; etc.).
This used to work very reliably on different machines, now it takes
*forever* (as in minutes) to pop-up the window. The machine is not
CPU overloaded and it looks like there is network traffic whenever I
try this. Is it "downloading" the JAVA that does this from the
net each time I do it and are Netscape's machines that support this
