Geocities is doing something that doesn't agree with Netscape browsers. No problems have been reported by folks using Internet Explorer.

One guy said his was able to work around the Netscape problem by disabling Javascript.

This is something you should do anyway, for additional security. You can always enable it if you need it for a particular site or page, if you think you can trust their programmers to be both honest and competent. Personally, I don't have it enabled, and am only occasionally inconvenienced.

Just how do you dissable JavaScript? I clicked on the security logo (the lock)and didn't see any way to turn the function off.
Thanks, Jim

Since you mentioned the lock, I assume you are using Netscape. Just click Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced, and you'll get the check boxes. Try it for awhile, and see if the annoyance factor outweighs the need for security. It depends on the sites you visit. In my case the only real annoyance I run into is with my Quicken portfolio tracker. Sometimes I turm it on temporarily, sometimes I just view the data without all the nice lines and columns.

If anyone is interested, IE is configurable too, but a lot more complicated. You have to choose View -> Internet Options -> Security, then you have to click the Custom radio button, and click Settings. At that point you can control all sorts of stuff, including Java and Active X scripting. Good luck.
