Question About Uninstalling Netscape 7.1

by caster / March 30, 2004 12:49 AM PST

I'm running Windows XP Home with all critical updates. I was using Netscape 7.1 but decided to switch to Mozilla 1.6. Mozilla installed successfully and picked up all my bookmarks, address book and other settings. (I believe Mozilla uses my existing NS profile.)

Since Mozilla is running great, I would like to uninstall NS using the Add or Remove Programs control panel. (Since installing Mozilla, I've not used NS.)

My question is, will uninstalling NS remove the user profile that is now used by Mozilla? If so, what procedure should I follow to save this profile?

I'm back... went to control panel and did the 'uninstall' of Netscape 7.1....restarted Mozilla....no problem..the only thing I seem to have lost is the quick launch button in the system tray at the bottom of my screen...but I have my shortcut on the desktop and in what I guess is the quick launch? tray near the start button....
this mozilla is GREAT! I swear it surfs faster...and hopefully won't crash like Netscape did!!!

Newsgroup for Mozilla. Very helpful for Moz and Netscape problems.
