User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.4 I was using Mozilla 1.4 as my primary browser because it is a quantum leap over the Microsoft product. I installed several Service Releases for XP and now Mozilla doesn't load. When I double click on the desktop icon, the drive will "spin" but the program doesn't load. I found the folder containing the Mozilla executable and tried invoking it there. Same results. I looked in memory (via "Process View") and there are no references to the Mozilla program. I worked prior the installation of these "fixes" (for the Blaster worm) from Microsoft. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Clicking on desktop icon or source executable 2. 3. Actual Results: Program didn't load Expected Results: I should have seen the "Mozilla.org" splash screen and then the Mozilla browser interface This is truly a mystery and wonder if it's hardware related (though my hardware hasn't changed). Hardware: ASUS P4B533, iNTEL P4 1.9, 1Gb DDR/SDRAM, four 160 Maxtor ATA/133 drives, standard components elsewhere. The program USED to work and it worked well. It was right after the brouhaha with this "Blaster" thing and the installation of the "fixes" that the program decided to quit. I need to have this running because I cannot stand the "other" product. Also, using NETSCAPE's browser v.7.1 gives me the same results as the Mozilla browser (I know the connection).

If it was broken by installing some service packs for windows, perhaps you should try to deinstall and reinstall it. I would suggest waiting for the 1.5b release, wouldn´t be too long. I would prefer to use the full installer, so you can reinstall without downloading anew, if needed. Link below is to latest nightlie. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest-trunk/mozilla-win32-installer-sea.exe You shouldn´t use Netscape7 and Mozilla with the same profile, each browser should be started with its own profile.
Created attachment 130655 [details] Screen Shot of error when trying to load MOZILLA 1.4 When I try to load MOZILLA, I get the attached error (the screen shot). There is one version in a folder that I *am* able to use and quite successfully, but the version that's installed, does not. The folder containing the unzipped files has MOZILLA 1.5b and I run it not the from the main hard drive (C:) but from H: I don't know how the program got there, but I have the MOZILLA desktop shortcut pointing to that folder on H: now.
uninstall all versions of Mozilla, remove any mozilla.org or Mozilla directories from your program files and your common files. Install Mozilla 1.6 or newer.
