    Using Netscape 7.2, when i click View, Headers, All ,
    the rightmost text of the headers is truncated!

    Also, the display window is frozen, so that i can't scroll down
    and read the ordinary email text.

    When i switch back to View, Headers, Normal,
    everything is fine.

    Anyone know how to get those HEADERS ALL windows to behave?

    Thanks!

    Don't know why that happens. Have you got your email setting to word wrap?
    But still don't know why it would make the display window freeze.

    Is this a new install?
    Does it do it on all emails or just some?

    islandpilot,

    If you click on the small arrow to the left of "Subject" you will then be able to scroll the message.

    The truncated text is the usual behavior for Netscape 7.2. This browser is now obsolete, and I would highly recommend moving on to either SeaMonkey, if you prefer a suite, including Mail/Newsgroups, and Composer, or Firefox, a standalone browser, and Thunderbird, a standalone Mail Client.

    Cherokee ,

    I got Firefox so upgraded from the old Netscape 7.01 sillydog version I had.
    I like it but still learning how some things work.

    Also put on another drive Netscape 7.2.
    But I like the way you could deal with blocking cookies better in 7.01.
    If you deleted any cookie in the list they are not really deleted till you click ok. But no any more.
    Plus I had more control on what types of cookies got blocked in 7.01 because you can take one of the cookies from a site and add it to the block list.
    Can't do it the same way in Firefox.

    You can do that in Firefox too, hewee. In the Cookies setting:
    Tools | Options | Privacy | Cookies

    click on the "Exceptions" Tab and plug in the URL for the site you want to block. Or am I misunderstanding you? :)

    I do not want to block all the cookies at a site but maybe just 1 or two or how even many I can and still be able to get to the site and use it.
    Taking about site where you have to sign-in and I am a member but I know that not all the cookies are needed because I used to be able to block others from a site.
    I would see the cookie listed in the cookie manager and then pick it and add it to the block list.
    If you block the wrong one then you had to go to the blocked list and remove it from there and start over because your only see the one cookie from a site.

    So lets say I went to "thecookiesite.com" but your get a ton of cookies just from that one site. Say 10 cookies. Your a member so your need to have some but may only need 2 or 3 of the cookies from the site. The rest of them you can see are tracking, ads etc cookies but they are in the "thecookiesite.com" site in a way if you just say ok to "thecookiesite.com" your get all the rest too like "thecookiesite.com.ads" and so on.
    I know I killed lots of cookies at some sites like comcast, google and other site but it is harder to deal with them in the same way I did with Netscape by picking from all the cookies from a site and then adding what ones I want from "thecookiesite.com" to the block list.
    Or am I doing it wrong in firefox? When you look at your cookies you can pick and remove them but there is not option to add to the block list I can see.
    Netscape let you remove it but you had the option to check the box so you don't get that one cookie again and firefox does not.

    Also I changed my setting a year or so back to always asked before setting a cookie after looking in the cookie manager and seeing cookies for sites I know I was never at when I block all 3rd party cookies.
    They would be session cookies but site they would be listed and some were even for sites I have blocked in my hosts file.
    Sites like google when you do a search and one of the sites listed at the top in the search wants to set a cookie when you never did anything but made a google search and block 3rd party cookies.
    So I was going try the cookie manager and added them to the block list.
    Also if you blocked cookies at a site it is not easy to unblock like it was in netscape. You have to go tru the "Exceptions" list and find the site.
    I mean they made dealing with cookies harder.

    Note too that with programs like WinPatrol, ZoneAlarm etc that gives you control over good and bad cookies that they never list sites that just put a session cookie on your PC.
    You have to look in netscape or firefox cookie manager to see them.
