OK. I downloaded and installed the complete (~25MB) NS6 setup for Windows on NT 4.0. I have yet to have any major problems after using it for a while. I experienced the memory leaks in the preview releases, but have yet to see any traces of them now. In fact, I have NS 4.76 running right now and it's taking over 3 times the memory that NS6 is. I did, as many suggested, create new profiles and removed all mozilla nightly files before installing.

Two observations:

1. Activation is broken if you install behind a firewall. You have no ability to specify firewall settings before it fires up the first time.

2. The lack of LDAP integration is still a serious annoyance for those who use NS for email as well.

And as for those who are complaining, why don't you come up with a procedure so that we can replace the NS6 engine with the nightly builds instead of trashing the whole effort? Or, better yet, why not document what you need to do to remove the parts you don't like or build a tool to help others.
