> You can specify how your browser window opens up at launch.

Well, what we're really talking about here is the page that loads when you start
the browser.  So how about "You can specify the page that loads when the browser
starts" or something similar?

> * Under the Navigator category, chose

Typo, should be "choose".  "Under the Navigator category" is a bit ambiguous --
it sounds like we're saying to expand Navigator and look for a category under
it.  Can we say "In the Navigator category", or is that just as bad?

> * In the Home page section, do one of the following:

In most other places, we say "perform one of the following steps".  Let's be
consistent.

>    1. * Click Choose File to select a local file from your computer's hard 
>       drive.

"Local" is a bit redundant, but that's okay because a user probably doesn't
understand how it relates to his computer anyways.  I think we can just remove it.

> Specifying Which Components Open at Launch
> 1. Open the Edit menu and choose Preferences.

Eek -- components is a very technical term in the way it's used here.  I think
we should say "Applications" or "Programs".

Also, we need proper spacing between the header and the content.

> * Click the Appearance category

Needs a period at the end.

>    1. Select the components you want opened automatically each time you start
>       Netscape.

Again, let's not use "components".
