As this build is using the RTM branch from November with a few fixes, which are also in the trunk, we advise you stick to nightly builds. Check the build bar to find links to the most recent builds.

You didn't have to use that "proxy downloading weirdness" *at all* with the original Netscape 6.0.

Unfortunately, the best installer (the one that does it all in one go without requiring a network connection) was "hidden" in a sea sub-directory on Netscape's FTP site, which 99% of users seem to have completely missed (subsequently then bitching about the far-more-awkward smaller installer that's more "visible" on their FTP site).

I had no problems with the Netscape 6.0 "full" installer myself and it's the much better installer cos if you want to re-install (or, indeed, install on more than one machine), you don't need an active Net connection (and a lot of patience waiting for the download) to do so.
