Make sure your have scripting on in Netscape, it may not be.

Go to "Edit", click on "Preferences". Now double click on "Advanced", then click on "Scripts & Plugins". You'll now see "Enable Javascript for", make sure "Navigator" has a check mark beside it. That may do it. If not, you may not have installed the full installation, you may want to try that then.

If you get it working, all I can say is... "Have Fun!". You will now be privvy of the WONDERFUL aggravation of trying to get web pages to look the same in both Browsers. Aaaargh. I use Netscape only for the exact reason you are. What a headache!

Regards...

Hi

Should work. Try history.back() without the parameters even though history.go(-1) should've worked. See here:

Could be your browser possibly?

Have you tried rebooting your computer? Reinstalling? You may want to try Mozilla Firefox ;)

Yea I rebooted several times, I'm developing a web site and just use Netscape as one of our browser to check browser compatibility.

Bah, Netscrap is a piece of junk now, but seriously, it really should work. Perhaps it's a Netscape 7 bug?
