experts-exchange login window crashes netscape 3

I'm using os 7.6 on a Quadra 950 and Netscape 3.1. When I open the experts-exchange.com login window I have to click on the stop button before the graphics at the bottom of the page load, otherwise netscape will quit. It always happens when the graphics are loading. Other experts-exchange windows without those graphics load ok. Graphics on other homepages load ok too. Anyone know why this happens?

Just a comment - I have gone to a few sites that *invariably* crash Netscape on my computer, yet others report that it loads on theirs with no trouble. I can't explain it but it just happens - sometimes it happened with Netscape 3 and not 2.  I tried everything that seemed logical but still came up with the same glitch.  Then it would go away mysteriously and all would be well.

What I think it is, is that a page can be programmed in a way that trips something on particular machines, and when the page is updated, the problem is sometimes removed. It may even be linked to a particular extension or control panel that's been added recently to your system.  You could as an experiment temporarily take out all but the essential inits and extensions and see if it still happens. If it doesn't, you'd have to put them back one by one to find out what is the guilty party.  Alternatively, of course, you can just continue to load e-e home page without images!

If this comment solves it for you, please let me know by adding a comment here.

Just a bit of a wild guess, but I would trash my Netscape cache files. Maybe, just maybe, your previously cached copy of these graphics is corrupt and causing a problem.

Shouldn't hurt too much to try !

As there has been no indication in the past few weeks that you managed to read these comments, fgif, I am submitting as an answer part of what I wrote as a comment. I believe that it provides a work-around to a problem that cannot be solved in any other way:

In fact, e-e works very well without images - just go to the Options menu and toggle Load Images.  This, I think, is as close to an explanation and a solution as anyone can provide for you.
