Netscape work's in one OS X identity but not another

I am using Jaguar (10.2.4) and Netscape 7.0.1.  I recently had a major crash in OS X and had to erased the partition and reintall OS X.  (The start up hung on the blue screen.)  After successfully reinstalling OS X and restoring all of my applications and documents, everything is working fine with one exception.  I have this machine set up for 2 users.  Both have administration privileges. In one user, Netscape works fine and in the other, it doesn't. When I try to launch it, the icon in the dock bounces for 2 seconds and that's about it.  So why does it work for one user and not the other?

For the user that's having problems,  try deleting their data folder and starting over.

Tried it.  Didn't work.  That is, I deleted the data folder in Users>[User name]>Library>Mozilla>Profiles and it still will not launch.  I also tried removing the entire Mozilla folder from that user's folder.

Do you have a Mozilla folder in /Library/?

yes, Mozilla is present.  I solved this problem by simply creating a new user in OS X and removing the old one.  Maybe that is what you meant?  In any case, removing just the data folder for Netscape for that user did not work.  Creating a new user in OS X did the trick.
