try netscape 6.  there's a lot of things i don't like about it, but they did
correct some really bad behavior of the previous netscapes.

if that doesn't help, don't bother with mozilla.   try opera.  from what
little i've seen, opera blows away any graphical browser i've seen (i've
never heard of konquerer, but henry loves it.  try that.)

if none of that helps, i'll bet you that lynx or links will work just fine
from an xterm.

the problem isn't with linux, it's with netscape.   a much different
paradigm than explorer, where if you have a problem with explorer, you have
a problem with windows.
