    I recently upgraded by browser from Netscape Communicator to Netscape 7.0. However on the 7.0, the forward and backward buttons are not highlighted and do not work. I did not have this problem with Communicator. I reinstalled the software, but have the same problem. My OS is XP. Has anyone else had a similar problem. I hate to call Netscape and pay the $30 support fee. If this does not get resolved, I guess I will go back to Communicator.

    Yes, that was it!!! I had inadvertently changed the last pages visited to 0. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have spent an entire day on this problem - reinstalled XP, Netscape, and Norton. Great site! Thanks again!
