I had just browsed to a directory in my website. NetScape was
hanging on the page retrieval. If I pressed escape or stop, the page would appear
but without the icons loaded.
I tracked the problem down to my bookmarks window.
If you are displaying the bookmark properties (i.e. Item | Properties), then Netscape 3.01
Gold (under Windows NT) hangs when loading icons. If you close the properties
window, then Netscape loads.
