Netscape7.1 freeze (delays) for while when I clic "bookmarks"

by Michel Petrucci / October 31, 2003 1:06 AM PST

I have Installed Netscape 7.1 recently.
everythings works fine and quicker than communicator
or other browsers.
I met only one bigg problem... when I clic on "bookmarks" to add or to edit it or
to search something in it, it FREEZE or DELAYS to open it, for at least 20 seconds... and than it opens..!!
I beleive that is nothing to do with caching because If I cilc on "bookmarks" one minute later, I got the
same problems.?!! anyone can help???
I run win XP, Pentium II = 400Mhz & 392 MB of Ram.
michel from Brussels.

You need to be running a firewall (if you're not already) like free Sygate from - type, sygate, in the Search box, you must be on-line to register Sygate.

Get, install, update and run free Ad-aware (and its HexDump plug-in) from


Go to or and click the Scan Now link to run a free on-line virus scan.


Backup your Netscape bookmarks to removable media, then uninstall Netscape in the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel; Restart your computer; Then re-install Netscape.

Doesn't Windows XP have a built in firewall? my copy seems to have that option ..checked out the internet connection folder in control panel -network connections, click on your ISP...checkout the tabs for 'security'..
