Test case please?  Does this happen with recent builds of SeaMonkey or FF?

Let me know how to check it. If it tells you somethoing:
'patches/packages/mozilla-1.7.12-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to
mozilla-1.7.12.
This fixes several security issues. For more information, see:

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#Mozilla
(* Security fix *)'

which coes from the Slackware web page as far as it is original
Slackware 10.2 package.

Foolishly I had deleted this XML file. I tried to produce it once again but with no success- XML file is big but it does not brake the Mozilla. So I guess this XML file was somehow damaged though other web browsers were abl eto open it ;(. 

In the case of no way prooving this case I suggest to close this issue.

Regards.
