Could you please always state which version of mozilla you're using? Thank's. Hm, sounds like you're sharing a profile with Netscape, right?
Reporter's answer per mail: "Yes, that's right. Mozilla 1.0. just downloaded it.." Reporter, please enter comments at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151205 so everyone can see it. Mozilla doesn't come with AOL Instant Messenger. You're netscape profile obviously has a reference to it. You can make a new mozilla profile with mozilla's profile manager. If you want to keep parts of your old netscape profile, you can copy them manually into the new profile. (Somewhere under windows\Application Data\mozilla.org or windows\Profile\<YourWinProfile>\Application Data\mozilla.org if I remember that correctly (don't have a Windows machine)). Thank's for testing mozilla.
Resolving as invalid - the package is not a Mozilla package but explicityly for Netscape. Similar: bug 125646, bug 147345 There is an other, general, bug about Mozilla / Netscape shared profile.

Created attachment 87759 [details] Please help I would like to remove both Netscape 6.2 & Mozilla 1.0 and re-install Mozilla 1.0 to see if that will give me a good, stable browser. Will I lose my address books, mailboxes, and passwords if I remove both browsers?
no, you will not loose your settings but this settings are the problem ! You can try this : Remove the AIM Sidebar...
I did the following: After I removed both browsers, I rebooted. Then, I opened up Program Files and found the Netscape folder. Under it,I deleetd any folder that says Netscape 6. Then I deleted Mozilla.org. Next, using the Control Panel to Add/Remove Programs, I removed anything soundlng like AOL or "Messenger". I went back to Program Files and looked for a folder called "AIM", & deleted it. I Rebooted. Then I installed Mozilla but the problem is still there.
The problem isn't in the programms folder. It's in your Mozilla/Netscape-Profile. It contains a reference to the AIM-sidebar. Your profile is somewhere under windows\Application Data\mozilla.org or windows\Profile\<YourWinProfile>\Application Data\mozilla.org if I remember that correctly (I don't have a Windows machine). As Matthias said, it should help if you remove the AIM sidebar. Open mozilla or netscape 6 with your profile, open the sidebars with F9, choose "Tabs/Customize Sidebar", click on the AIM-Sidebar row and click remove. Good luck.
I was able to delete a reference to buddy list in my sidebar & the error message no longer comes up each time I open my mail. thanks. However, my system freezes & I can not open an email or browse an email. I have to alt/crl/del in order to end Mozilla. Else, it is just frozen.
Then I'd definitly recommend to make a new profile. You can find details on how to do that under http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/faq/profile.html If you have mail and other settings you want to keep, you can copy these files manually from one profile to the other (see question 7.5 on the page given above).
When I try to set up a new profile, I keep arriving at my yahoo homepage.
Hu? You've started the profile manager via Start/Applications/mozilla/ProfileManager (or similar)? As I'm not on a windows platform, I'd suggest to ask at the mozilla/windows newsgroup: snews://secnews.netscape.com:563/netscape.mozilla.user.win32
You must close mozilla (also quicklaunch) and after that run "Mozilla -profilemanager"
On Mozilla 1.0 frequently asked questions: http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/faq/ the link for: Back to Mozilla 1.0 Start Page does not work when using Mozilla 1.0 or Netscape 6.2. It works fine with MS IE.
